I just noticed that clementine oranges are about the same size as your average sponge or ping pong ball. A lot of ball moves work with them. Smile

I make use of that coincidence in my "Magic Idol" routine (a hybrid Benson bowl/BIL routine).

Having previously borrowed (and vanished) a large denomination banknote earlier in the routine, I relate how the local villagers would often drop produce in Swami Mahmi Baba's begging bowl and that, while Swami Mahmi was always grateful for whatever people gave him, he especially like "those small seedless oranges called clementines that grow wild in that part of the world". I then ask if anyone has a clementine I can borrow.

When a clementine is not offered, I follow up by saying "I'm not surprised--clementines aren't in season. Fortunately, I brought some artificial clementines with me, just in case this happened." I then pull a 2" orange sponge ball from my pocket and drop it into the bowl.

Silver? Well conjure me up a Clementine, Saffron & Dark Chocolate Opera Cake (Glutton Free) if Silver isn‘t the colour of the wheel within a wheel spinning silently in space!

Good idea.

It might also be possible to reinforce a section of rind to get a serviceable *****.

You reminded me of this post Jonathan Townsend made on Feb 13, 2003 4:14pm at The Cylinder and Coins: (I'm referring to the section at the end of that post).
Quote:
Frank,

JR was trying to mess with the magicians of the 1920's with that handling. Today a clever magician might try other tactics to mess with magicians.

The wand pushes the trick away from folks. Bob Kohler, David Neighbors and Curtis Kam have posted about using the same premise and put a small coin on the gaff of their Boston boxes and did the routine into an Okito box. It works just as well and so much closer to the audience.

Still waiting to read that someone produced a full shot from under the cylinder at the end of the routine. Or dropped the wand into the cylinder to have it vanish. Or produce a huge stack of coins from inside the cylinder. Or do the routine with three Oreo cookies and a jelly bean.

Is it soup yet?

(I quoted Jonathan's post here because that topic is huge and I found out that search links are cached and eventually expire).

And, at Look! He's got a coin up his sleeve! in the "Little darlings" forum, stannmaple wrote about a Miser's Dream routine where he produced cookies. That seems far better for children than producing coins. (Far better for me too! I make no claim of maturity!)

And, of course, it doesn't have to be food - although food brings a new meaning to the term, "bad act." Smile

Or, did you want to stay on the subject of clementines?
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

I think thoughts about any food are fair game Smile
