Sorry about the delay in posting, we have been performing outside the country.

Thank you for your comment, we do not reveal personal information about our clients. This is the first time that we have opened the class up for the general public.

This may be the last one we offer for a while, we're in negotiations to teach in China so hopefully that comes through.

Sincerely,
RootBerry

It has nothing to do with this being our thread, it's just after you've heard that line 1000 times it gets pretty old.

Root, if I'm not mistaken, you don't swallow swords. Bill Berry, your partner does. I tought mysefl. Did so by doing research. I'm 99.9% sure you are not a sword swallower. Your not registered if you have manage the skill. I know you juggle, one of the best I've ever seen too! But why would you be hering gay jokes and jokes about teaching woman to swallow when you don't have the skill?

You are mistaken on several key points. First Bill Berry is my teammate, not my partner. You could have meant he's my business partner, but that is not what you typed, semantics aside. I can swallow a sword, have done it in the past, but can't do it well enough to perform it or even do it on demand. I am by no means one of the best jugglers, at best I'm a performing 5 ball juggler. Finally, nowhere in this thread was a gay joke discussed. The aforementioned person mentioned teaching his wife to swallow a sword, a penis joke yes. A gay joke no! In answer to your question when you work with the same person for 15 years you hear all the jokes that seemingly witty audience members tell your BUSINESS Partner.

Last Saturday was world sword swallowing day. Several hundred from all over the world swallowed swords all at the same time @2:30. It was a Ripley's thing . Btw I can only swallow a pink 260 Q then pull it outta my pants leg in brown sausage links. Now that takes guts,but it is rather funny.
