Topic: I'm staking claims for cups and balls
Message: Posted by: Justin McWilliams (Jul 10, 2005 12:07AM)
Ok, so the way I figure is if I'm ever going to go down in the annal's of magic for the being the greatest magician ever, I must go ahead and take credit for the being the originator of the cups and balls. When I see someone doing it I walk off muttering something about thief and rip offs.

What do you think, will it work?

*wonders exactly how many magicians have done this*

I had the idea of doing this some time ago. You really should be more original....

*walks off muttering to himself about magicians stealing his ideas.*

Magician; "Next I will be performing cups and balls."
you; "I invented Cups and Balls."
magician; "I bought these cups off of the internet."
you; "I invented the internet!"
magician; "from 'some-fake-online-magic-store-that-I-am-making-up-as-I-write-this- message.com'"
you; "I started 'some-fake-online-magic-store-that-I-am-making-up-as-I-write-this- message.com'!"
magician; "shut up"
you; "I started shut up!"

Or "Hey that cup and that ball touched! You owe me a dollar!"

Excuse me but I invented merlin.......you stepped WAY out of line by mentioning him!!!
Message: Posted by: Roland Henning (Jul 12, 2005 12:58PM)
Okay, just for the record. The Cups and Balls were invented by "Schlump the geek" 2253 B.C. and he published it in his lecture notes "Geeky Magic Vol. 2". Nobody bought it, so he died of a broken heart.

Yes but everyone knows that Cups and Balls are an unauthorized version of my much more original Beakers and Marbles routine.

Fine then, if you invented leapfrog than Im publishing an idea where your feet are touching instead of apart therefore making just enough variation in the jump to be my own. Ill call it..........leaphog.

If your going to invent LeapHog. why not have it being where you jump over a Harley-Davidson Motorcycle.

People steal magic all the time. Alex Elmsley stole something from me and had the NERVE to put it into print 40 years before I was BORN!!

A real jerk to say the least. I am still mad about that one so I can imagine how angry you must be at all the cups and ball theives arround.

I actually think it is funny when someone complains about someone else stealing what they have rightfully taken!

Look you guys, I'm not happy, 22.74 years ago I invented stupidly long forum discussions based on a single joke. I don't deserve it. The only thing I've ever stolen is a vowel from Dannydoyle. U. There it is, sorry about that, restore it to it's rightfll place. ***, he's stolen mine now.

P.S.I also pinched a y off him, next I'll steal his where and how.

Justin might have invented cups and balls, but they're my balls now and I'm rather attached to them. He can have the cups back--I never liked them anyways.

Hmmmm
steel, wooden, sewn.
Please be specific on which balls so I can claim the other kind
Thanks

Excellent - just be careful; I might steal the profits!
Message: Posted by: JesterMan (Jul 22, 2005 10:03AM)
Hmmmm,

Tony,

Stealing was actually invented by Winona Ryder's great-great-great-great (77 more) Grandmother. This person was actually responsible for there being no room at the inn, as she had stolen the towels, sheets, pillows and the remote from the last available room. The irony was, she had stashed all this stuff away in manger, out back, so that place was actually quite cozy. The one complaint was that she had also stolen a very bright halogen oil lantern, and many people thought it was so bright that they mistook it for a star overhead.

However, I now own the rights to stealing.

Jester - That's ok, I've stolen the rights to stealing from you!
Message: Posted by: Justin McWilliams (Jul 22, 2005 04:56PM)
I wonder if I pester steve enough if he'll make this one a sticky bun. You know as an example of the sad sad face of magic and how we easily rip each other off.

Maybe he shouldn't it would chase newbies away.

Well we do have plenty of time on our hands, we must be slightly touched in the head.

Who else would sit there for hours on end farting around with cards, coins, cups, balls and other simple objects?
