Is a Magician more like a Fork or a Bowl?

Consider the differences.

Or are most Magicians more like a Bowl of Forks?

I'm going with bowl.
1. Well rounded.
2. Deep, but not too deep.
3. Able to hold something, say a secret.
4. Functional in many circumstances.
5. Comes in many shapes and sizes.

Vandy...Bill Palmer brings out the philosifart in me what can I say.

I mean think about it...a Fork stirs up the Bowl...tosses the salad, delivers the goods...

a Bowl on the other hand does what Jerrine postulates a Bowl does and is all about. A Bowl is more than just a vessle...it can be a hat. A Fork on the other hand can not be a Hat.

But a fork can be a hair pin. Or a hair pin can be a fork in a pinch.

Some magicians are bowls. They simply gather whatever is poured into them.

Others are like forks. They probe around and bring out the best.

Fork seems more assertive than the bowl. The bowl IMO seems passive. But in terms of tricks up the sleeves, the bowl can accomodate more being a receptacle. We can have a bowl with a handle and the handle could shape like a fork?

Guru BP says: "...Or a hair pin can be a fork in a pinch."

Circular thinking as a Fork is most likely the result of someonme getting tired of pinching a piece of meat out of a hot Bowl.

Bill also said: "Some magicians are bowls. They simply gather whatever is poured into them....Others are like forks. They probe around and bring out the best."

My thoughts as well...thus the thread

Of course bowls, like magicians can be capable of good entertainment when you turn them upside down and bang them on the table.

I don’t know but the café is more like nut house. Smile
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

A Benson Bowl, or a Psychokinetic fork?
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Hey, Whit! I just bought a new hat yesterday! I have a spare that I can afford to dent.

It would depend on which magician is being watched, I suppose. They could be could be a bowl, a fork, or a strap-on. The 1st would be comfortable. The 2nd would feel a bit uncomfortable, and the 3rd would be a real pain in the @ss. Smile

Are you talking about the bowl or the space that's in it?
Absolutely no comments on the fork. PM for details.
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.

In ancient China (and the pre-China Warring States Period as well as in neolithic times) a magician was considered either a bowl or a chopstick...if he needed an assistant they were either a compartmented bowl or a pair of chopsticks.
