I like this story a lot. It could be told as is (i.e. without an accompanying effect) - maybe as a lead-in to a routine (or routines) themed around relationships.

However, an image keeps popping in my head of a horseshoe clonking surrealistically onto the table as the lady in the story mentions that horse.

So, perhaps you tell the story toying with a circular 'pine-tree' scent from a car. On one side of this impregnated card is a picture of a steering-wheel and the name of a garage - on the other side is a neutral, straight-mouthed smiley face. You show the steering-wheel picture when the man is thinking, and the face when the woman is thinking, so as to distinguish between the two.

Of course, it is the circular 'pine-tree' that turns, unexpectedly, into that very solid horseshoe.

(It would also be possible, of course, to have the respective images on the 'pine-tree' changing with the story: the steering-wheel becoming more decrepit and the smiley face steadily less smiley. To be followed by the the final change into that jarring, unignorable horseshoe.)

Obviously, this needs a lot of work (!), but it feels like there is an effect in there somewhere.

Thanks for sharing.

You darn right there is an effect in this one! (READ. READ. READ.)

They're off and running with the horse origami. Caleb takes it on the first turn with the dancing horseshoe. Magic is intrinsic with this one. The story just GRABS!

And coming into the final stretch...

"She Got the Goldmine, I Got the Shaft" was written by Tim DuBois (BMI), and was most likely popularized by Jerry Reed. It appears on the albumn Jerry Reed - Super Hits (RCA -- UPC 0-7863-67406-2-1) along with "Lord, Mr. Ford", "When You're Hot, You're Hot", and "East Bound and Down." Easily one of my favorites.

FWIW.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

There are 2 main differences between men and women.

1) The 3 Stooges difference. No explanation necessary.

2) The cat difference. Women love cats. Men tell women they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Last week I was walking past our cat and, as I tried to step around him he jumped to the side and I accidentally kicked him in the head.

Honestly, that's really how it happened.

Honestly.

I like to put scott tapes on cat's as well as wet spaghetti around the cat's neck Smile It's fun to see how the cat try to get the stuff off...

Monty Python:

"Hello, Mrs. Premise."

"Hello, Mrs. Conclusion."

"Busy day?"

"Busy?!?! I just spent 4 hours burying the cat."

"4 hours to bury a cat???"

"Yes, it wouldn't keep still - wriggling about, howling..."

A channel (A&E I think) used to run commercials for Monty Python's Flying Circus late at night. One ran half of the "confuse-a-cat" sketch. At the end, the screen went black. Suddenly, words appeared on the screen. "Men, if your girlfriend laughed at this....marry her"

I always enjoyed that one.
