Are there any courses for learning doubletalk.
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

I had a pamphlet when I was kid about double talk, and I recently saw it on ebay. Of course I've forgotten the name but it might have been something like Xtalk. That's where I learned that you had to get the sanafor for the apataf, but maybe it would be better if you asked people what time the wheggan thrill thrummed. I hope this will help you get the quaffaree for the farragan like you intended.

I was surfing and just picked up this thread. The author of "X JARG0N" was the late Wallace Lee. I met him in Chicago in `1950 at the IBM comvention in Chicago. It was a small paperback booklet (typical of the period). He explained the "system" very well.

P.S.
Wallace Lee was from North Carolina (I THINK)

I heard that he did school shows,but I have no details. I suspect that he booked himself, but not sure.

There was a brief anecdote about him in an old Linking Ring (when I was young (!) I read the LR cover to cover (even the Ring Reports!)

He had a sense of humor (hekk, he double talked!) He used a GMC panel truck (today we would call it a van.)to transport his show. A boy, in a rural area, pointed to the "GMC" on the front of his vehicle, and asked Lee what the "GMC" stood for. Lee replied: "Good Magician Coming!"
