Rent A Midget
image What's the one thing sure to liven up any party? How about a midget? That's not the answer that would have occurred to me, but it's the premise behind Rent A Midget, a California company that rents out midgets (or little people) to 'hang out at parties'. Based on their website, this company looks real enough, though the only way to be certain would be to go ahead and try to rent a midget through them. The midget entertainment options range from "Midget Strip Shows, to Christmas Cookie Servers or Office Pranks." As shocking and slightly cruel as the idea sounds, I suppose it's no different than what circuses have been doing for centuries (i.e. using midgets as entertainers).

I need a midget or a dwarf for my teacher. She has a serious fetish for midget men. She prefers the ones that have very big muscles and tatoos. Sometime next week I need it, if this is possible please contact me

SHORT DWARF .com is apparently a guy named Howard that has no price sheet for his talent. They are very unprofessional and extremely unorganized. Their website says they service areas they don't service therefore they falsely advertise. Not the best resource. I will post better sites. If budget is not a concern, I would go with at least they are clear and concise with regards to pricing. None of the sly tactics tries to get away with.
