Yes, I did load a handful of mashed potatoes once. I grabbed 'em off the guy's plate on my left (with misdirection, of course). It was not, however, a cups & balls routine, but a bowl routine.

We load rubber peanuts, rubber apples, rubber potatoes, rubber olives and all sorts of other rubber objects.

Even then, there are loading methods that would allow you to load real coleslaw without it actually touching the inside of the cups. John Mendoza's coin loader is one example. Buma makes a loader that would also permit it. This interruption makes me realize how little some people know about loading techniques and/or devices.



Bill, are you referring to these?:

I should mention that I was thinking more along the lines of the standard sized versions of these cups.


Thanks, Bill.

All interested readers can see your review of the standard Buma cups here:

By the way, Bill, how does pewter hold up vs. copper or brass?

That's hard to say. There are different grades of pewter. Some pewter is a bit more flexible than other pewter. The pewter in Mark's cups is generally fairly rigid, but I wouldn't bang on it. I had a pewter tankard I carried at the Renaissance Festival until it got bent enough that the glass bottom leaked. There was no way to repair it.

I concur. I have gathered various pewter cup sets over the years, all of them with very nice design and decor, but a few of them are quite soft.

I had a chalice that I had bought from a Renaissance faire here in Michigan for use as a not-so-chopped chop cup, and I used to carry it on a leather tankard belt loop. One day, in my complete idiotic absentmindedness, I sat down on a bench close to a tree. No, I did not actually sit on the chalice but it did get squished between me and the tree enough to bend the stem a bit. The pewtersmith was able to fix it, but it took him about an hour and half.

One of the French-style sets that I have is hard enough to do the cup-through-cup penetration without any damage to the cups. In doing such with that set, I never let the cup fall to the table after it "penetrates" the other anyway; I immediately catch it in my hand.

Hi Donnie,

It was a story told to me. One of those "you won't believe this, but..." tales.

I felt compelled to check in this section...it is such an incredible repository of Cups and Balls knowledge.
