Standing O


Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.


Someone sent me a video yesterday of a sword-swallower. I was horrified but fascinated. I’ve seen people swallow swords before, but this guy then proceeded to do acrobatic cartwheels, and then climbed a pole and did a swan dive–sword still in him—and landed on the hilt of the sword.

Watch it if you can.  It’s terrifying.  One wonders if it’s a sham–does the blade collapse into the hilt of the sword?  I don’t know.

The man got a standing ovation, of course.  The panel of judges is still recovering.
