Seeing Is Believing

Never have I ever seen the like Of a polar bear riding a trike Or a whale riding an elephant. Simply, in my book, irrelevant Things I know I’ll never see, Unless I pay an exorbitant fee! Like the time I paid ten dollars To see two naked giant brawlers In a sideshow at a traveling carnival Yes, I was young and stupid, pal. Which is why I am not very rich I’m taken in by every barker’s pitch And, yes, I’d probably pay to see The sordid sex life of the honeybee!

Oh, this is great "I paid ten dollars To see two naked giant brawlers In a sideshow at a traveling carnival" - inexperienced, not stupid.

Inquisitive, I think, and sometimes too much so.

You, too, Michael. Yes, I think we have all done a few silly or stupid things in our lives because, as Caren says, we are inexperienced.
