Can someone suggest a load to produce from the Dye Version streamer at the end of the routine? I have a real problem with the finale of the trick. There just doesn't seem to be any stock ending to it.

I feel that the 'message inside the tube' is anti-climatic and I've never been able to get any excitement out of it. I used to produce a dove, but I don't do livestock any more. Did you know that dove tastes like chicken? ... (Just a joke guys, just a joke.)

Do you want it self-contained or are you going to use the silk to hide a steal from someplace else. If it is not self-contained, you can body load a dove, steal a large bouquet of flowers, a bottle or almost anything.

I'm not looking for anything self-contained, but I think that the trick needs a 'wow' ending which I don't think is built into it. The kids are pulling this long silk out ... it's repetitive.

After it's pulled out you have 2 kids on stage that you have to let go, pull in the silk, then what? Showing the tube empty with the words written on it seems kind of blah. If there were a way to do some sort of a sucker routine with the tube and then produce the sign, it would work for me.

Gather the streamer in from the kids. As they come back to you, produce a gag item or other item. Then, open the paper saying there is something inside for them. Have the word "Applause" written inside.
