Hi everyone,

I'm wondering why there are chopped olive to do with chop cup.
Is there any meaning, any story, or any classic performance that uses the olives?
Why there are no chopped lime or chopped peanut produced?
Thanks for answering.

Best,
YuYen

Tom Rose made a "Chopped Nuts" chop cup from a Pabst Blue Ribbon can and used "chopped" peanuts in the shell.

Pete said it. They fit into a lot of routines, and there are some effects that come with them in the package as part of it, such as Jiggernaut by Mark Jenest. Try them out sometime just for variation instead of using balls - just to be different. They have the added bonus of being a recognizable/familiar item to the audience as well.

Pimento stuffed olives are just cute... and they come in regular size, large Spanish Queen size and Jumbo "big-as-an-egg" size.

Love those olives!
I keep them spiffy with an occasional spritz of Armorall, for the wet look.

Great idea with the Armorall!

Olives are not popular at the bar in Taiwan.
Are they very common in USA?

Very common! No Martinis in Taiwan?

Try "Jiggernaut" by Mark Jenest.

Perhaps you can explain using olives because "Olive (i love) this trick!" ::bad pun groans::

Oh, maybe we have here but I don't know cause I don't drink Martini.
I google Martini and found there are olives in it, so I think maybe we have in Taiwan.

"Jiggernaut" by Mark Jenest is also cool.
Thanks for the suggestion!

You're welcome! "Jiggernaut" is a great routine and the olives make total sense!

Then don't use them. Figure out what pleases you and use it instead.
