Everybody Say “Ja!”

We’ve all seen street performers who juggle knives, bowling balls, toilet plungers and flaming batons.

But I’d never seen one dressed in lederhosen who peppers his banter with WWII jokes and Bundes-schtick.

That’s the act of Hilby the Skinny German Juggle Boy. And visitors to the Dutchess County Fair this weekend, including me, ate it up faster than fried dough.

There’s a life lesson in that: You don’t have to do something unique. Often, you just need to do it uniquely.
