I am really terrible with the worms. However, I have a box of them out on the table PLUS Herman is ensconced in my shirt pocked (Plaid, of course—thanx to Seth)

When I’m not doing cards or strippers, I practice with Herman. In spite of that, as I said, I’m SUPER terrible. Oh, I can make him roll up and down my arms and go thru my fingers. I can even wrap the IT around a marker and make him do that. PLUS I use 2 Mickey D’s coffee cups for the jumping. I even kiss him good night.

However, in spite of my terrible-ness, today, people actually BOUGHT some. I swear I ACTUALLY sold 2 dozen including one guy who came back and bought 2 more than his original 3. WHAT A SHOCK! I may actually have it down pat—as John Wayne said once-- “in another 10 or 12 years!”

That's great! Hang in there with the worm. I keep doing the worm to build the tip, then to the deck pitch then finish by offering the "package deal". I really "s*^k" with the worm, but people buy them! Go get'em, Jon! BTW, are you still doing the gun shows?

Yep..seems like that's all I do recently. But the fair season is here so I might be doing some of them with my Zibit. Who knows? Smile

Hi Jon -- Glad to hear that you and the worms are getting along! You say you are terrible, but you must be doing something right to sell a few dozen of them at one pop. On a very good day, I could sell an entire gross of the little suckers, so hang in there! The worms are also one of the very best ways to build a tip, IMHO --- people literally stop dead in their tracks to look at them.

BTW, the Mickey D coffee cups are OK, but if memory serves me right, they are opaque. If so, think about getting two of the clear plastic 24 or 33 oz. Slurpee cups from 7-11. With clear plastic cups, it's much more mystifying, as the specs can see there are no gimmicks in the cups themselves. The clear cups are also great for the "kiss" bit of business, as they can see the worm climbing up the inside of the cup. Just make sure the cups have a smooth rolled top edge, so the worms can easily come over the side (the lip) of the cup. Some plastic cups have a sharp square top edge, which is tough for the worms and NG for the IT, too!

Take care and have a great season. SETH
