His "Disappearing Foie Gras" Trick Is in Trouble, Too

On his blog, a professional magician says he may have to discontinue a trick in which he borrows a pack of cigarettes from his audience. 

Reason:  The last time he tried the trick, no one had a pack.

  1. If he was performing in DC I can understand. Other than at the occasional Reasonid gatherings, I seem to be the only person who brings cigarettes into DC.

  2. You mean the guy in the audience isn’t a plant? Damn. I thought I had that trick figured out.

    There msy be a few vegetables and some fruit.

  4. I had to stop doing my “Watch me catch a bullet in my mouth” trick because wusses stopped carrying concealed, too.

  5. “Illusion.” A trick is something a whore does for money!

  6. The last time he tried the trick, no one had a pack.

    Hardly a surprise. The anti-smoking nazis abused science, taxed to the hilt, legislated away property rights, nagged and shamed, and made second-class citizens of smokers by discriminating against them and relegating them to the streets and back alleys. In short, they took all the fun out of it.

    Uber-sexy punk rock chef Anthony Bourdain always smokes after he eats foie gras.

    (I would thoroughly enjoy seeing the lovely reason ladies on “No Reservations” to discuss politically incorrect foods, and have him whip up some dishes for giant Burmese python, jellyfish and other invasive species.)

  7. The only people who go to magic shows are dorks who aren’t cool enough to smoke anyways.

  8. “Illusion.” A trick is something a whore does for money!

    GOB Bluth! GOB Bluth! What do I win?

    A trick is something someone a whore does for money!

  10. Yeah, the guy in the $4,000 suit is gonna bring a pack of cigs for a magician who doesn’t even make that in a month.

  11. Tim Ellis gets over $4,000 per SHOW.
