Tiny performing flea from a flea circus

Say it isn’t so! An entire troupe of circus performing fleas has fallen victim to the freezing temperatures holding Germany in its frosty grip. Flea circus director Robert Birk says he was shocked to find all of his 300 fleas dead inside their transport box Wednesday morning. Leaving him unable to fulfill his performance engagements, Birk scrambled to find and train a new batch (i.e. find a new batch of “lively” fleas). Luckily, an insect expert at a nearby university was able to provide 50 new fleas in time for the first show on Sunday.
