One response to ““The Bees, the Flowers, Jesus, Ancient Tigers, Poseidon, Adam and Eve”

  1. Reminds me a bit of Chung Ling Soo, a white magician (William Ellsworth Robinson) who passed as Chinese as part of his act. Not sure if this blog will let me post links, but the wikipedia article on him is interesting and informative.
