Circus sideshow talker Ward Hall on the beauty of the deceptive phrase "anthropomorphic freaks"

Prince Randian, “the living torso” in Tod Browning's 
1932 movie Freaks, was a "non-anthropomorphic" freak.

Ward Hall explains about "building the tip" or gathering together a crowd at a sideshow, and why anthropomorphic is one of his favorite deceptive words.
