I often get people asking me where/how I learn all of my tricks. I need a good response to it. Any ideas?

- thanks.

Well this one is from Greg Wilson. He says that people think that magicians go to a special to school to learn this stuff, but to be honest to learn this stuff you have to ditch school and hand out in the joints.

- Learn this stuff?? What do you mean?? I though everyone could do it???

- It is like changing from a child into an adult, one day you cant do anything
and the next you are pulling things out of peoples ears.

- I rubbed this Genie's lamp that I found one day...

- Hell I don't know, I was just told that if I tried it it would work.

- Tricks? What tricks?

- What? Are we actually supposed to learn how to do this? Oh, C$%@! Quit school
and you still have to learn to do things.

- Well I had a choice. I could either take the blue pill or the red one, if I
took the blue pill...

- The voices in my head make it happen.

Then some of the oldies.

- I could tell you but then I would have to kill you.
- Can you keep a secret? (YES) So can I!

In Don's case it was a VERY Traumatic incident involving a threesome with a straitjacket and a pair of handcuffs, the handcuffs were the ones who attacked him and left him in the state that he is in. It was so traumatic that it caused a magical psychic kickover in his brain. Now he has these abilities.

I learned how to do this from my Uncle Charlie. He toured with the circus as the "Human Cannonball". Not a bad gig though! He got paid $50 a day plus mileage.

Patrick,

When your uncle retired and they had to replace him, how did they find someone of his same caliber?

Actually, Ron, it wasn't difficult at all.

Once Uncle Charlie was discharged, the circus fired off an email to Cannonball Runners (they're a shell corporation, and big shots in the headhunting field). CR shot back a proposal. The circus recoiled at the price; apparently this is a booming industry. But left with no other choice, they bit the bullet and managed to find someone in their range.

That being said, I'm not really sure howitzer 'propriate to have this discussion in this forum at all. And after rifling through the other boards on this site, I can't find any that would be on target.

Suggestions from those of you on the front lines would be greatly appreciated.

Peace!

Actually wasn't Uncle Charlie a Big Shot in the Circus and every time someone would announce him there would be a Big Explosion and he always went out with a Big Bang?

The first two points are indeed true, but the part about the big bang is just a theory.

Just out of curiosity, I'd like to know how pun-savvy everyone is out there. Without bothering to ignore puns that are used twice (in other words, count them each time they are used, except when appearing in a "Quote"), how many cannonball puns did everyone find on this page?

I counted 29.
