And You Thought YOUR Neighbors Are Weird: Sideshow, Sword Swallower, Walking on Broken Glass

Della Deadgirl after pounding a nail in her nose: “Generally the rule is, if you hit something squishy or hit something hard, STOP!”

Sideshow performers from around the U.S. gathered in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania for their annual end-of-season convention, entertaining a crowd and one another with classic stunts like swallowing swords, eating worms, driving nails into their noses and walking on broken glass.

By the way, and in other news … a Buffalo Grove 4-year-old had a Lego trapped in his nose last night. Buffalo Grove firefighter/paramedics extricated the Lego sometime after 9:00 p.m. Wednesday.
