Not long ago at all I was selected to be the one to hold Redford's sponges through all of this. Why me? Why anyone? Friends, reading this doesn't convey a shred of the cruel weirdness one lives through when forced to witness this. Too, in the description he glosses over the inviso-torch flames at the end...swear to gods I thought he'd dipped the duck in kerosene somehow and was about to dump it in my lap.

The inviso-torch certainly is a wonderful illusion when the flames are wrapped around an object it really looks like that objects instantly combusts. The trick is holding the torch behind the object and pointing it towards the object and away from the body.

Spook, thanks for the kind comments, the lecture group in Columbus turned out to be great fun.

(The Sponge Balls from Hell)

a•nath•e•ma ( -n th -m ) n. pl.
One that is greatly reviled, loathed, or shunned



Patrick:

I despise misusing dictionary quotes, especially when they are self-contradictory.

Your definition shows that anathema is a plural noun. That's what pl. means.

Then is says "One that is greatly reviled, loathed or shunned."

One is not plural.

Bill,

I send this to you with the utmost respect and affection.

crotchety
adjective
having a difficult and contrary disposition; "a cantankerous and venomous-tongued old lady"- Dorothy Sayers [syn: cantankerous]

This is why we all love you so much.

Now, to the evil sponge balls. I looked in my cr@p box and all I have are yellow sponge balls. I'm thinking, "I'll be buggered if I'm going to go out and BUY new red sponge balls just to do this." Okay, easy, we're talking puss instead of blood. Just passing this one to those of us with yellow balls. Now, you ask, what if I've only got blue balls? My advice, you need to get out more often.

Okay, I'm so, so, so sorry. It's the cold medicine.

I enjoyed that, Mark! Take some more medicine, or better yet, stop by for a Corey Crush and a pancake.
