Welcome to Wrinkles Traveling Circus. His collection of less-than-amazing sideshow acts don't draw the crowds that they used to, and times are getting desperate for Old Man Wrinkles, but his granddaughter, Lula the Bearded Girl is always happy.
Lula goes into town for a chimichanga and is noticed by Dagmar the Witch, who needs the clippings from bearded woman to complete her spell, a cure for explosive farting. Lula trades some beard hair for a large beautiful egg that Dagmar owns and goes her way. On the way home, the egg hatches an enormous beast, who devours Lula's snack, and is so named Chimichanga.
Meanwhile, Dagmar petals her treatment to an unscrupulous pharmaceutical giant, Dinderly.
Back at the circus, Lula and Chimichanga are greeted with jealousy by side-show rival Amazing Randy, the slightly strong man. 22 pages.
