I saw an extremely fat and tugley carny with unusually small eyes which got much bigger when it smelled my popcorn.

Want to go to the carny?

That nice carny over there gave me a discount on cotton candy.

language use amongst carnival works to speak to each other without alerting patrons to dangers or problems.

it works by adding "iz" between letter or sylibles of words and speaking them quickly so they blend together into something that almosts sounds like complete gibberish to people who dont know the language

In Europe a carny is a scary person who is on the darker, wilder side of the crusty world.

Typically wearing dreadlocks, goatie beards, stripey pants, various small bells, and pointy shoes, they are often skilled in juggling or fire breathing.

Commonly found all over Europe but particulary in Czeck Republic, Germany and Norway, not neccessarily having been born there.

They live in a world of red mushrooms with white spots, jesters, gnomes, trolls, dwarfs, chainmail, pointless medievil references and bad music.

They play freaky variants of guitars and mandolins and often speak in rhymes or riddles.

They are rarely seen on TV, One appeared on Ali G, singing a song about "the pixie people"

They dont listen to CDs, opting to play their own freaky rubbish. The closest thing to carny music you might find is a band called "folque" -
Middle class guy on holiday in Prague:
"Oh no, here comes another f&*kin carny"

"Good day good sir, do my stripes offend thee? Or be it the sign of the moon which clads my back?"

"What? No.. leave me alone please"

"Certain-lee, it will be, Im the gnome with fingers three!" -

Carny runs away dropping two gold coins.
