ABSTRACT
The article announces the release of a set of postage stamps by the Australia Post in 2007 to commemorate circus acts with strong teeth. The stamps featured Ashton's Circus strongman Jonas Zilinskas, whose act involved holding an aerial trapeze with his teeth on which the younger artists performed. Zilinskas performed the routine for over 50 years until he finally gave up in 2001.
