Celebrating the Inauguration With Sword-Swallowers
Being in a bar when the sun is shining? Not so unusual. Watching sword swallowers and belly dancers perform in the middle of the afternoon? Not something you get to do every day.
The Lucky Daredevil Thrillshow is on stage at the Palace of Wonders, and host Tyler Fyre is putting a 27 inch "solid skewer of sharpened steel" down his throat as the crowd cheers. Later, while twirling a trio of flaming batons, he holds aloft a small bottle of alcohol and asks the crowd to lift their drinks and toast the new president.
They do, with a roar of approval. Fyre grins, takes a slug from the bottle, and exhales strongly, sending huge clouds of fire towards the ceiling.
