Humorous French postcard, a circus with audience made up of monkeys, and a monkey ring-man making 2 pigs dance.

Chers cochons qui faites des tours
Exquis jusqu’à charmer les belles
Pour ressembler à des amours
Il ne vous manque que …des ailes
1er Avril
 
Dear pigs who do tricks
Exquisite to the point of charming the beautiful
To look like loves
All you need are…wings
1st April
