Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts for a funny blendo patter?

Thanks.

It would depend greatly on the design on the final, large silk. For example, when I use a butterfly silk at the end, I refer to the silk-making process, etc.

When I use a rainbow silk at the end, I do a comedy routine about leprechauns and pots of gold.

Thanks Peter,

The trick is actually Duane Laflin's Splendo, but instead of using the tube I use a change bag.

The premise is:

Three single silks go into the bag and come out "tied" together. I put the tied silks back into the back and state the end silks will now change places. (I really just grab the other opposite end of the silk chain and the audience knows it, intentionally lame)

I then put them back into the bag and state they will now be transformed into one multicolored silk. I pull out all three silks in a big crumpled wad. I then say something like "Ok I can really do this." I proceed to slide the small silk knots off which make the "blended" silk appear to be a chain of three silks. Ta-da!
