This Ringmaster Isn't Afraid To Show His Softer Side!

He's cute, cuddly and fuzzy -- and I'm not talking about Punchline King of Ringmasters. I'm referring to that stuffed monkey he's holding. "Lindsay [from Beat Freaks] gave it to me earlier because I was sad," he told me after I snapped this photo. "But I ain't sad anymore."

Lindsay confided in me later that "Monkey" has been with her since birth and travels with her everywhere, which always helps ease the anxiety of being away from home. She expects to get Monkey back from Punchline at some point but is happy to lend her childhood friend to a newer one in need.
