Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus elephants perform during Barnum's FUNundrum in New York on March 26, 2010. Barnum's FUNdrum, the latest show from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, was put together to create a 200th birthday salute to Phineas Taylor Barnum (P.T. Barnum), founder of the circus. The show, which will travel across the US in a mile-long train, presents some 130 perfomers from six continents and will be on tour for the next two years.
