I downloaded pictures of old time circus freaks, printed pages with the photos and back stories, then assembled them into a book I titled Mondo Freaks for my wife's birthday.

No, what's really sad is that the various freaks made a good living with the various sideshows until some idiots decided they'd be happier living on disability for $12000/year instead of the $5000/monthly or so they got as freaks.
"Being a freak is dehumanizing! Here, take this pittance and go where I can't see you. Now I feel better about myself."

And what exactly was the point of that slideshow?
