A Children's Bounce House Was Placed Next to a Human Suspension in Mesquite

Last weekend the Immersed in Ink Tattoo and Arts Convention arrived in Mesquite. Once there it dared to do the unthinkable: squish a small dining buffet, dozens of working tattoo artists, tiny-person extreme entertainment, sideshow spectacle and and a team of human suspension performers into one mid-sized showroom.

The most obvious logistical issue was the placement of the children's bounce castle, which sat directly next to the human suspension. In fact, the palace slide provided the room's best vantage point for the show, where adults were hooked through the flesh, bungeed and then tugged up and down before being left to dangle slowly, like loose buttons.

Whether the scene was arranged intentionally or not remains unclear, but after the first hook was latched the playing children were reported as being on their best behavior.

Before I take my children to any event I check to be sure that it's something I'd want them to see. If I don't agree with what they'll be seeing, rather than ruin everyone else's good time by whining about what people do in front of my children, I stay home or hire a babysitter.


These are the type of people who take their children to Friday dinner at a gay-borhood restaurant and then complain.

I know some heavyset people need rascals and all, but this is getting a little ridiculous... Seriously, cranes?

@Angel Jones I may be "fat" but I'm good at what I do. I put one hell of a show on for those kids that's for damn sure.

@Angel Jones Because reality seems to have escaped you I wanted to mention that you're not exactly Twiggy either.

@Angel Jones She wasn't trying to be *anything*.

But please, feel free to make fat jokes, I'm sure it will impress our mutual friends.
