Forget Y2K, England's fresh out of
Little People! Too many holiday productions of Snow White has created a
dearth of dwarves in the Isles. No less than 18 professional productions
are required to satisfy the Brit's ancient urge to see freaks dressed up
in funny little costumes. That's 126 "people of restricted growth" or
630 feet of midget!!
They're importing them from Belgium, Finland, and Scotland (can you
imagine working with a Scottish Dwarf?). Never mind being a computer
programmer in San Francisco, if you want to be in demand hack your
legs off at the knee and get to London!
