My daughter has been working on Josh Riel's One Cup Routine. I'm not one for Whit's imitation style of learning. But, that's the way she wanted to do it. She not only uses his patter, style and pacing, but subtle mannerisms as well. I think it looks odd to have a young child acting this way. Should I let her continue?

Oh... Here's a clip.

I'm dead set against it. It's bad enough that we have one Josh Riel, but do we really want someone else emulating him, especially at such a young age? I notice that you're even letting her dress and wear her hair like him. Maybe if you start setting up some boundaries regarding that, the situation will fix itself?

I noticed a slight difference, she doesn't cry quite as much.

Well ... she's got that trick down. Toss in some projectile vomit and you've got a reality series on NBC.
POOF!

You gotta admit, that tip-over load from the mouth is ingenious!

I'm so deeply hurt, so deeply offended, so incredibly shocked, stunned, and...hey, adjectives fail me...that I can hardly type.

You piece of crap Josh S., you mother of all liars and hypocrites and illegitimate monkey sons, you stealing septic cockroach, you....

I curse you.

That is NOT Josh Riel's routine, and everyone who knows anything knows it.

It's my routine, and everyone who knows anything knows it.

May you all die and burn for an eternity for ridiculing my addiction to the devil's buttermilk.

Beer?

OK. I'll take a beer. Nevermind.

This appears to be a typo. I believe that Herr Stone meant to write

"It's my routine, and everyone who knows nothing knows it."

An understandable error, considering that English is his first language.

Josh, as anyone at the Magic Café could tell you, that routine would be greatly improved if the cup were more expensive.

I was hoping she would learn my Grandfather's routine instead.

This is lies and slander, my routine had much more titty.


Other than that your daughter is a thief and reprehensible to all magicians everywhere.

when she gets a little older can I get her cell #?
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.
