Neither the beanie weenies can nor the solid cup permit that.

The question of being a bigger fooler is more of a factor of Dan than it is the routine, itself.

I could make the same argument for Lonnie Chevrie's routine. It is similar in concept to Beanie Weenie, but has a surprise ending that is very strong. It's been knocked off by a whole lot of people.

You're right, but I was just making a general point about one cup routines - the Chop principle just allows that extra kick.

I'm trying (maybe rather ineloquently) to distinguish between a one cup routine that incorporates the Chop principle briefly in order to create a single startling moment, versus a formal Chop cup routine based entirely on using the Chop feature repeatedly.

There is a way to use the chop principle with Beanie Weenies or with the solid cup. But you have to do what Pete suggests -- think outside the cup.

It would not work the same way, but the effect would be basically the same.

Somewhere between 97 and 153 years ago... I found three little fur-lined thingees to cover boiled eggs. To keep them warm. They packed flat and were about the size of a PF Cup. It is hard to describe, but I think they were rabbit skin with the fur inside. They had little leather handles at the top.

You could toss a ball inside and it would "stick" and dislodge when put down briskly.

But a KILLER MOVE was possible by shaping it with your thumb at the rear so when set down OVER a ball it was NOT inside, but looked (from the front) like it was.

It was actually behind it but the curve made it seem like it was inside. You could squeeze it sideways and lift it and the ball would stick at the back on the outside, set it down, lift it and ball would appear.
