This week's prompt is, I think, the trickiest one yet.

It is:

Anyone can join, with a 50-word vignette in the comments. Your vignette does not have to include the prompt term.

My effort:

"What's with Agnes?" said Cal.
"Interviewing a sideshow," said Jack. "Don't think he's going to work."
"Why not?"
"Strongman, and he really is strong. Never works unless they aren't."
Cal gave him a sidelong glance.
"It's not about being strong," said Jack, patiently. "It's about being dramatic. About impressing them."
