Deciphering the Circus 


Sammy and ZZ's puppy play-fighting reminds me so much of the kayfabe of professional wrestling. So, I decided I needed to incorporate some appropriate jargon in my captions of a series of photos posted on my so-called moblog (see Wrestlemania 1, 2, and 3). Since I've probably watched pro wrestling for a grand total of 80 seconds, I had to rely on Wikipedia's compendium of wrestling slang. The read was illuminating.

As a bonus, I finally get the joke behind the name of Jack Black's latest flick (see wrestling term Lucha Libre). I might actually watch the movie now that I understand smarks a little better. After all, my entire life has been propelled by the suspension of disbelief.
