The other night P&T were on the show that comes on after Conan O'Brien.

And - this isn't totally a digression - for those who are always saying "yeah, but so-and-so is on national TV and you're not, so who cares what you think", can I just point out that the host, whoever he is, is one of the least talented/funny/charismatic people I've ever seen, in "real life" let alone on TV. Why he is on the air I truly cannot understand.

Anyhow, P&T came on a bit late, it appeared (the host got kind of carried away talking to some sports guy about fantasy football). They seemed somewhat rushed. The trick they did [STOP RIGHT HERE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SPOIL THE SUSPENSE IF YOU EVER HAPPEN TO SEE THE TRICK LIVE ALTHOUGH IT WAS PRETTY LAME] atarted with a brief bit about how Teller likes to save his Halloween candy & eat it through the year. Teller proceeds to eat candy from a bag with a Halloween motif.

Then Penn had the host cut 10-15 cards, pick one, not show it, shuffle it back into the packet, & deal cards from the packet face up, each time saying "this is not my card", so Teller could "display his insight into 'tells'" (P&T were on to publicize a book, "Cheating Your Friends at Poker" I think was the title). Host does so, and AT THE EXACT MOMENT his selected card appears Teller lets off an airhorn hidden in his Halloween candy (remember?) bag!

That was the trick.

I've seen them do better.

Trick was fine, problem was that Carson Daly, the boob with the show, had no idea what was going on. He was expecting a card trick. Pen was doing a card trick in the guise of a display of tells. Carson didn't listen and was actually looking for his card, not trying to evade them. Came of as a confused bunch of guys.

Henceforth I shall always think of him that way.

That sounds very funny to me, not lame at all. lol
-A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
-It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
-The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.

See you space cowboy...
