Jeff Koons worked in a circus as a teenager, and was known locally for possessing unbeatable balloon-blowing techniques. He excelled in creating inflatable poodles, and was often spotted trying to coax the elusive creatures into playing fetch. After a few months, his work was discovered by a curator having been dragged to the circus by his hyperactive five-year old. A buisness deal was discussed, while trying to untangle the toddler from candy floss gone awry. Years later, Jeff Koons is a widely acclaimed artist, having successfully brought the bewildering techniques of puffing into shiny balloons to a true art form.
