Just for the male magicians:

Your girlfriend knows the sound of riffled cards over the phone.

You see an attractive woman and think if she will suit your act.

Magic turns you on more than women do.

You spend more time in front of a mirror than your girlfriend does.

You show your girlfriend the same trick everyday insisting that "I've improved it greatly".

You are the only one of your male friends that has a nice "silk collection".

You ask every waitresses you meet, "do you have a minute?"

69. You copy jokes from Facebook, in a style typical of magicians - fifteen years old and stolen.

70. Every time you see Criss Angel on TV you see something that makes you yell "Oh come on! Seriously?!"

71. You've ever had people look at you funny because you made that cool finger-suction "pop" noise with your TT while it's in your pocket.

72. You don't think digging around in your pockets, while you're standing talking to conmplete strangers seated at a restaurant, is rude and awkward.

73. You've ever snapped at a loved one - "Stop walking over here!" - because you're setting up I.T.

74. Your loved one stops, sees you squinting at nothing, groping around at nothing in mid-air with scotch tape stuck to one finger, and totally understands.

Sorry, Mr. Hanes...I guess I am guilty of retelling a joke. Bad juju. I guess I broke the rules of magic by actually crediting my source, and (gasp) even leaving the lines with credit to the writer intact. Lesson learned. :)

You drop a coin in a soft drink machine and suddenly reallize you just spent $30 for a coke.

I hope J Hanes was just being humorous as I don't think the implied criticism was justified.

Hmmm...guess I did it TWICE. :)
By the way, Bill, appreciate your earlier comment. But you've been around long enough (no comment on your age, but your posts)to know that there are some that just like to "put one foot in, and shake it all about."

So, here's a few original (and true) contributions-

Your drycleaning comes back with a mangeled safety pin and elastic cord.
The guy in church behind you keeps brushing the white hares from your coat. (pun intended)
You have more incomplete decks of cards in the house than full ones
You always check out the "Sharpie" section for any new models.

Yes sir, your assessment is correct.

The faux-vitriol was an illusion.

J Hanes, that's what I thought. Thanks.

I do however still stand by the joke as being both relevant, true, and funny.
Message: Posted by: Bill Ligon (Jan 6, 2009 10:14PM)
My jokes are older than that.
