When you begin to suspect they put something funny in the coffee served at the Café.

When you know that "Spring Bills" are named after Bill Ligon.

Posted: Sep 23, 2009 7:55pm
OK, here's what I in my humble attempt think is funny- maybe from spending too much time with magic.

I tell my audience (usually from my small close up case) that "I have been married 32 years and am very sentimental. Some keep the wedding garter on their car mirror, or others save a piece of the wedding cake in the freezer. I in my hopeless sentimentality carry around with me the little figurines off the top of the wedding cake." (Show the figurines- big laugh- you can obtain them from Wal-Mart- a miniature wedding cake plastic figurine set which shows a bride CHASING the very scared groom- very well done and funny- costs under $12).

"One thing my wife will never do is recycle the cans and bottles from the garage. I always to that, go to the store, get old pop goo all over my fingers, pour out any cola remaining in the bottles into the trash can as quickly as I can at the store with the hope no one sees me do it, etc.. You've all been there with me- what a royal pain! Then I discovered the WORLD'S FASTEST portable RECYCLER!!!" (use a "Billy Mays" type voice- show a tube- these words are pasted on the side of the tube using premade black letters- nice raised ones also available at Wal-Mart for under $5, can put a lightning bolt on the side of the tube too). Then use the Maxello Magic new vanishing Coca-Cola bottle routine. Instead of the spring flowers, I use SPRING BILLS "as the World's Fastest Recycler pays BIG in advance!" After the pop bottle vanishes- you can close with: "This also works with overdue bills- you can put them in the tube- they disappear too- Let the Whole World Sing!" (sing it out like Coca-Cola ad).

To see the trick performed, go to the Maxello Magic web site, then type in Coca-Cola in the search box. Click on video at the bottom. Hank Lee also sells it.

Hope you can use it. If you have any funny ideas to ad to the routine above, please let me know, as I really enjoy this trick and am looking for any additional recycling, marriage or Coca-Cola jokes! Roger from http://www.ChristianMagician.org

Whoops, did I just do that? You know you're spending too much time with magic when you put one of your favorite routines on the internet!

When you have enough left over playing cards to paste on every inch of all the walls of your house.

When you realize that you need to spend even more time with Magic when you re-read the last few messages and realize you don't have a chair made of playing cards or a wall papered with playing cards (great idea btw).
...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

When 24 hours a day is not even enough for magic yet you squeeze as much time for the Café and have a good laugh.
