I worked another Xmas Bazaar yesterday. One of the specs was trying to figure out how the worm worked, and inadvertently gave me a great new line to use.

After the usual guess about static electricity, he said "Well, I guess you must have a very magnetic personality!" SETH

Hi Seth:

Hey that's a very cute line to use! I have a couple things that I use to get a laugh. One is the CD trick where Freddie pops up through the hole in the CD, I say "LOOK FREDDIE LOVES THIS CD, ITS THE THEME FROM WORMEO AND JULIET!!!!( I have this printed with a magic marker in large caps on the shiny side of a blank CD) Then I have a little colorful kids book that's titled "THE DIARY OF A WORM", I have Fredddie wiggle over the book a few times on the pages. Then I say " Look folks, Freddie is a regular BOOK WORM "

Rod, also very good ideas!!

People want to be entertained, not just fooled. I find that the more I can interact with the worm, the more people like it (and BUY it).

At one point in the pitch, I pretend to forget what comes next. In a variation of the "kiss" move, I lean over the cup that the worm is sitting in, turn my head and put my ear to the top of the cup. The worm climbs up to the top of the cup and "tells" me what his next trick is going to be.

The kids just eat it up, and even some of the adults will giggle, too. SETH
