    Earl decides to make amends to a woman with a beard that he made fun of in Jr. High School. After confronting her he finds out that she is the bearded lady in a carnival and lives with a bunch of other side show people. He and Randy befriend the whole bunch and spend a day partying and having a good time with them. Earl realizes that he was laughed at when he was younger at a swimming pool when he was trying to dive of the diving board because he had hairy nipples. He confronts the lifeguard/gym teacher at the pool and get embarrassed again. After this he decides to dive of the board shirtless the next and invites the carnival folks who turn him down. When he is about to dive off the board, he chickens out and turns around to climb back down the ladder, when he sees that the carnival folks are there. They all proceed to jump off the diving board. Diving off the board in public, motivates the carnival folks to chase their dreams and all of them get real jobs.

    Meanwhile, Joy is going to meet her public defender, dressing very sexy in order to motivate him to work harder. When she gets there, she finds out that her lawyer is a woman and to top it off is deaf. Joy proceeds to act like the trailer trash that she is and the lawyer tells her to represent herself. Joy crawls back to the deaf woman lawyer to get her to handle her case, and makes a fool of herself again.

    This was a great episode. The whole gang crack me up, buy I think Joy does it the most.
