My college speech class has required yet another speech, since I have been doing a good bit of research on busking, guess what I picked as a topic. I'm pretty much covered on the information base, but a visual aid is a must. Any suggestions in that arena? One kid in my class keeps bugging be to make a helicopter disappear, but ...

Any ideas for a visual aid, or in general would be appreciated.

Professor's nightmare might just be perfect, short, visual, packs small, and it applies. I wonder how the professor will react to me passing the hat... should be interesting. perhaps I can give some of the others in the class monopoly money to throw in the hat. I'm more interested in making the grade then making a buck with this project.

any other last minute suggestions? I give the speech on Monday, Dec 4. I'll try to have the outline up if anyone wants to critique it by Saturday evening.

Forget the monopoly money. you need to go for it. make those kids feel guilty for not contributing to the hat. the teacher will definitely like it. it's a gutsy move that everyone will appreciate.

Well the speech went well, got a B. I didn't end up doing prof's nightmare, my rope was gone. ended up doing a small sponge manipulation. The hat got no love, the first girl just looked blankly at it and didn't pass it on. Oh well, hopefully when I hit the streets (maybe in the spring) the hat will do better.

It sounds like she didn't know what to do. It's your job to "educate" them, so they know what to do. Start working on your "hat lines." Just handing them a hat (or anything for that matter) without explanation will just get you blank stares.

You should have told the Professor to put an "A" in the hat in lieu of money Smile

I did explain it, I think she was spaced out. Why didn't I think of the A in the hat?

BTW, when you pass the hat, don't pass it like a collection plate. Approach the gilpin, hold the hat out to her, and smile. Then do a hat line.

Hint. Start with a male gilpin who wants to impress a female of the species with how affluent he is.

And always have a dollar or so in the hat to start.

Books could be and have been written on how to pass a hat.

Gilpin=non-busker. Right now, you are either a gusker or a bilpin.
