The other day, I realized that the probability of me performing the C&Bs the way I used to was almost zero, so why not share it with you? Hopefully, a few of you may have some fun with it. Essentially, I did the trick with flies. Little plastic ones from a joke shop will do. For the final loads, I would ask something like "and do you know why the flies keep buzzing around?" And then I'd show that under each cup was a pile of fake doggie poo with some flies glued on it. It was a very fun little routine with some fun lines, and the final loads got great reactions and laughter. A friend at the magic shop suggested I pull out the flies from a small jar of Vaseline, but noone got the joke. (Fly in the ointment) Of course, this isn't recommended for all audiences, but always fun for me to do.

Bwahahahaha!

I can't see myself doing this, but I wish I could. That's just so silly!

Thanks for the laugh!

Haha, I'm sorry I ruined some of your tea! Also, you'd be surprised how many effects you can turn around to have something like this. Very fun to goof off with. At one point, I even had a little fly swatter I made that was collapsible to go with it, but it broke.

There was a paddle routine about 20 years ago that used flies and a paddle that was shaped like a flyswatter.
