are the Sturdy Beggars™? and
how is a Mud Show®? Yes, just why are
these merry mountebanks of muddy mirth part of our
lives, and exactly how do they produce such a powerful
and popular force of nature, known as the Mud Show®?
The answer is easy. . . "I dunno,"
we know for sure is that in 1979 The Sturdy
Beggars™ first "fell" into their
special "field" of "entertainment"
somewhere in the rich and tasty top soil of the
midwest. Since then the first, the only, the original
Mud Show® (Reg No. 1,985,845 with the United
States Patent & Trademark Office) has toured
to over 22 Renaissance Faires across the continental
United States. With their adage "the whole
world's a stage, just add water," this "greatest
show in earth" has been coerced into traveling
from Boston to Houston, from Virginia to California,
from Minneapolis to Annapolis, and has left nothing
but laughter and mayhem in its sullied wake.
the past two decades, hundreds of thousands
of faithful followers have flocked to the Mud Pit™
to partake of this popular and patented picaresque
pageantry. But what exactly is The Mud Show®?
Well, to quote the very great and learned man, "The
Mud Show is a wonderful juxtipositioning of social
mores which illuminates man's foibles thus erupting
their audience into geysers of carthartic laughter."
There, what could be more plain? Of course, to the
untrained eye The Mud Show may only appear as a few
simple men standing amongst a pit of wet dirt. However,
scholars pedantically exclaim that The Mud Show consists
of more than beggars and mud, much more, the most
vital component of The Mud Show is always:
their audience. For it is the audience which
yields the essential energy force which in turn combusts
the beggars and mud into a whirlwind of uproarious
jocularity. The force of this fusion inversely arouses
that same audience to within a single decibel of the
very limits of legal public frenzy. But the most wonderful
proviso of all is that this oh-so-vital audience can
consist of virtually anyone! You
read that right! The audience can consist of anyone!
The Mud Show® is an entertainment where grandma,
the kids, and the friendly biker all laugh as one.
one cannot fully ascertain The Mud Show
without all of one's five senses. Therefore it is
highly recommended, for "true" "knowledge",
that each and every enlightened Being should come
on out to their local Renaissance Faire and witness
for themselves the Sturdy Beggars
exhibition of the inaugural Mud Show. Then, and
only then, can one truly ascertain just what the
heck this ruckus is all about. The Mud Show:
it truly has to be seen to be witnessed.

it ain't a Mud Show®)
