Topic: Higley Zibit Arrived Today
Message: Posted by: Rod Pringle (Dec 12, 2008 04:26PM)
Hello doug:

The Mer Zibit arrived today! Wow what a work of art! This style and design was exactly what I was hoping for. You did a marvelous job on this Zibit. I have banners, bannerline, top, and all equipped. Ready to roll. The single o manual is the only way to go with a Zibit. I highly recommend just going ahead and ordering a Zibit (the manual comes with the Zibit, so your good to go).

Thanks again Doug for the terrific job. Also I know I am off topic here, but I also received the 3 no evil packet trick , the first of the week. Doug..this trick is fantastic.... All I can say, folks....if you don't have it..., get it...it's a mind blower, packs small plays big

Ken is a true speaker of Knowledge! De man knows all - he sees it in his magic ball(s)!

And HE does have the most excellent prices around! But I happen to know that if you want to get an extra discount form him if you talk nicely – promise to stoke his balls nicely when he gives them to you and mention the code word to you he will change the price by 25%!

What is this code word I hear you ask? Well its seasonal …… its “Lapland new forest”!

Shoot he said not to say anything – I don’t think he wants you to get the 25% alteration in price! Sorry Ken!

Excuse me gentlemen but this thread (as all threads should be) is all about ME and how terrific I am.

I got the impression this thread was about the almighty zibit, you know your "children" are all we really care about and you're just in the way. :)

and Magicman I have had a blast this past year and I wish you lotsa dollars.

A lie, who gets a motel room?
Now, if you said a 10 ft trailer . . . . .

Now Dough - may be they could be on a con or something - not that I am suggesting anything a carny would do would be dishonest in ANY way :)

Nah Dave, that's too many, you only need one or two . . .maybe three, to run a good con . . .. not that they would do anything like that.
Message: Posted by: dave_matkin (Dec 16, 2008 01:00PM)
Sorry about that Dough

you gave me 32 - sorry I thought you gave me a 5 hence the short change!

Not that I would get caught giving short change.......

Somebody buy something and make all this worthwhile.

Before coming to the Café I would have never known. These things look so real when I visit places they just have to be real. I would have never known they were made by someone here.

Mr Higly do you have a list of where your zitbits are on display? I have been places and seen ones that I have seen on your website.

After finding this out I wonder if there are any REAL Shrunken heads or if they all come from you!
Message: Posted by: Doug Higley (Jan 1, 2009 03:46PM)
Chrusa trhank you for interupting the numb nuts squad...

It's a sore spot qwith me that I have NOT kept track of who got what or what went where...I would have the greatest markerting list in history! I lose track of them. Sometimes I have a picture or two or one of the Zibiteers stays in contact regualrly but for the most part the 'things' go off into the void and I forget who got what in most cases...some of course I remember if triggered. Where have you been? You can PM me and I'll try and remember.

I personally like the look of the "Atomic Death Worm."
Message: Posted by: chrusa (Jan 2, 2009 05:25PM)
I am going to be purchasing one soon I am putting aside some cash. I was interested in pitching Svengali decks this summer and was thinking that a zibit would be a cool add on. Has anyone ever done this? II think this would work perfectly!
Message: Posted by: Doug Higley (Jan 3, 2009 01:51AM)
A few have combined them. Some like David Walker tossed the pitch and now just do the Zibit...others found it was a bit much to combine two full time jobs that way...
Message: Posted by: Steve_Mollett (Jan 3, 2009 11:27AM)
If I were showing a zibit, I would not do any magic; maintain the illusion of an average Joe who found something weird.

Just me.
Message: Posted by: Doug Higley (Jan 4, 2009 07:26AM)
Me too. That is the approach.
Message: Posted by: Harley Newman (Jan 4, 2009 07:58AM)
Now that we've established that Steve and Doug are anything BUT average, can we get back to knitting fog?

That is a cool idea.
Message: Posted by: Doug Higley (Jan 4, 2009 10:18AM)
IF you know how to KNIT anything...it's a moneymaker when doing this show. Yes I know why and will tell all..to the 'family'. :) Zibiteers are priviledge to certain insider info from Zibit central.
Message: Posted by: airship (Jan 5, 2009 02:20PM)
Do those of us who have purchased '3 No Evil' and/or 'Three No Evil' count as 'insiders'? Or do we have to own a Zibit?
Message: Posted by: Doug Higley (Jan 6, 2009 05:03AM)
The Zibiteers are 'insiders' of a different order. They get access to brain cells that are geared to enhancing 'admissions' to their enterprises. There is not an 'Insider' destination or web site...just access to me over the phone with a different 'hat' on. You sitting and knitting will not add to your presentation of 3 No Evil me thinks. :)

As a Zibiteer, I wear my Higley ears and sing proudly:


Gee, this is Strange!


Why? For a buck I'll show ya!


I prefer to have Aaron Neville singing this on a continuous-loop track. His falsetto lends so much to most renditions of any heartwarming song.

Of course, as a good Zibiteer, I only show this on Wednesdays and Thursdays!

(Now let's see how old this demographic really is!)

Message: Posted by: Doug Higley (Jan 6, 2009 06:54AM)
Everyone knows that anything can happen on a Wednesday and the Circus revs up on Thursdays...and Annette gave name to the tube as 'boob' and created a new market for 'training ' bras and a fresh use for Kleenex. (maybe two uses.)
