Super glue? I was thinking staple gun!
Nothing would get done at all, if man waited so long that no one could find fault with it.

We save the staple gun to staple cards like a blindfold over a volunteer's eyes. (Why do they scream? Doug would know. He is the VP in charge of fear. They are afraid of the dark. Right?)

I've come up with a twist on this where I pull a hat out of a rabbit! Of course, my rabbit is a toy I appropriated from my daughter - although it looks real from a bit of a distance.
We are all about as successful as we choose to be.

Hmm - you see rabbits from hats a LOT less than you see say, linking rings, ambitious card, egg bag, C&R rope and they're not called cliches, they're called "classics"...

Rabbit from hat is actually seen VERY rarely. I have only seen it once or twice in my life, and one of those times was on TV (Paul Daniels with a long and funny routine and loads of misdirection) That's because it's VERY hard to pull off.

Me? I'd love to do it but I don't perform often enough to justify keeping a rabbit, and I don't have the necessary cojones for the methods I'm familiar with.

You are absolutely right Ross, seing the rabbit from hat in an actual performance is indeed a rare thing, compared to so many other classics. However, there is this "something" about the illusion that seems to cling in the publics mind. If you ask any lay person to name a trick performed by a magician, you will more than likely get answers like floating a lady in the air, or sawing a woman in half... But the answer I get most often is: pulling a rabbit out of a hat! (I have to admit there is is an immage of a rabbit in a hat on my business cards...). This immage is very deeply inserted in the public's mind, even though rarely seen in performance, and that is why I personnally feel it is more of a cliche, as was discussed earlier. This in no way means that it should not be done, on the contrairy. There are magicians who pull it off beautifully, and I am sure there are plenty of audiences happy to see it too!

Have a nice day!
