BRUNO, PLUTO & HUGO: Born - April 7th, 8th & 9th respectively. These three cousins make up the first act at the Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas. All three sock monkeys are amazing trapeze artists and have been involved in the circus scene for many years. Their first appearance was with the "Ringling Brothers" where they actually had their other cousin Tebo, join in on the act. However, Tebo missed an important cue and now resides in a home for vegetable sock monkeys. ANYWAY, after that small set back, the three cousins tried their tails at circus set-up and got a job with "Barnum & Bailey". While setting up one day, the three decided to have a little fun and play on the trapeze. Unbeknownst to them, the head honcho from Cirque du Soleil happened to be passing by, peeked in and was mesmerized. He hired them on the spot and Bruno, Pluto and Hugo have been his #1 attraction for years now. You can catch their act on their website www.CIRQUEDUSOCKMONKEY.com You see, sometimes there are good endings!
Author's note: Go ahead and try the website. It will take you to an option called "Cirque du Sweet" which asks the question "Are Sock Monkeys Making a Comeback?" Personally, I didn't know they were out and needed a comeback....you tell me.
