They're not lying... Magicians are geeks and nerds. Sorry to say it, but it's true. We're right up there with comic book collectors and Dungeons & Dragons fanatics. I mean, think about it... Have you ever heard of a "magic groupie"?


But we're a step up from the Pokemon crowd!

If you can't quote the Dead Parrot sketch, word for word, you can't call youself a nerd!

Actually, I can't quote the Dead Parrot sketch word for word, but I do know "Who's On First?"

No. Just as funny in a different direction.

What else could you expect from a loudmouth want to be hot shot like Penntell. Seriously, their joke tv show needs to go back to high school english and take a quick lesson on logic. Saying the "f" word a hundred times doesn't make yah cool mannnnn.

/my thoughts.

You know, they explained why they do that in one of their first shows. Apparently calling them liars and con men would present legal liabilities, but calling them a**holes and motherf**kers doesn't. And they make sense to me. People take that they say way too seriously, or magicians do anyway. I didn't see anything wrong with what he said on Bernie Mac. Yes I think that every magician here is a geek, including me. I think I remember Bernie saying that Jordan got that girl through some power he described as "The Mac". Penn said girls like 3 things, money, shiney things and magic. And Jordan didn't have any money or shiney things so it must have been the magic that got him the girl.

-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...
