The two men are in different circuses.

The two pices of wood were originally one piece .

Was the piece of wood a measuring stick?

Was the gun disguised as something else?

No and no. When the guy blew his own brains out, he knew exactly what he was doing.

And it's more of a travelling freak show than a circus.

Was there something dodgy about the measuring stick, as in, it didn't show the correct measurements?

It didn't show the correct measurements when it was in TWO pieces.

The guy who died was the record holder for some thing - shortest dwarf, biggest nose or something and the other guy was his rival. Somehow the rival managed to convince the first guy, through the use of a wrongly calibrated measuring stick, that he was growing taller, or his nose was shrinking - or whatever. The thought that he was no longer the record holder was too much for the first guy and he killed himself. :?

You are 95% of the way there so I'll give it to you. Well done :D

The guy who killed himself was the shortest man in the world. His rival was the second shortest. The rival sawed 2 inches off the other one's measuring stick, so when he used it he thought he'd grown and was no longer the shortest, so he killed himself.

The reason he didn't notice the other piece of the measuring stick was that he was also blind.

If you want another one just ask!

A man walks into a London pub at lunchtime. He's hungry and sees "Albatross Pie" on the menu. He orders it, takes one mouthful, then runs outside and throws himself under a bus and dies.

He commits suicide? I presume it's not due to the taste.
