You know the boomerangs, the blue one is longer than the green one until you "stretch" the green one and show IT'S longer now.

In his book; "Magic Digest," George B. Anderson turned it into a sucker trick with a "greenish" banana, and an "overripe" banana!

In those pre-Internet days, I had to hunt around for a suitable picture of a banana that I could copy and paint as suggested by the routine. I felt I did a great job.

First time I tried presenting it, a kid shouted; "Oh, that's just an old optical illusion!"

Never used them since!
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

Don't let ONE Kid, stop you from doing a fun effect. Change/try different routines. Or just say, 'yeah, your right' and go on - Your the Adult.

That's a good point. Thanks. I'll have to remake the trick, though.
