I want to have a contest and give away my new trick "Clink" to two people. I hope this is allowed on the site - if not wipe this post and slap my sorry behind. Here's the contest:

Write a magic-related limerick

Limericks tend to get dirty and this is a clean site, so watch yourselves.

FIRST PRIZE: A signed first-edition copy of Approaching Magic plus Clink gimmick and DVD.

RUNNER UP PRIZE: Clink gimmick and DVD

CONTEST ENDS in ONE WEEK, you have until end of day next Friday, the 19th.

Have fun!

Hi David,

Allow me to be the first to offer up a limerick for your consideration:

So many magicians I spy
Have web shops where I can buy
So much stuff for my bin
But I cannot get in
Thanks to some ‘professor’ named Dai ___________


Catch you soon,
Jon

I've heard nothing of this new "Clink,"
Or whether it's like "Chink-a-Chink,"
But if it's from Regal,
It's practically legal-
ly bound to be stunning, I think.

To brush off this limerick mission,
And pass up a signed first edition
Of Approaching Magic
Would simply be tragic
For anyone called a magician.
Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

I like to do magic for all,
"It was fun," I always recall.
But the fun quickly stops
when my chop cup gets dropped
and I have to go chasing the ball!

Magic is like an angel
Who creates wonder
Around and through each of us.


Wait a minute, wrong form. Here's the corrected version:


"Magic is like an angel / who
Creates wonder / around and through
each of us," I won't say,
For this is to stay
A limerick, not a haiku.

A truly impossible trick
Can take your breath like a swift kick...
(This has to stay clean,
So you know what I mean
When I finish with:) ... right to the thigh!

The tools of magic are many
And money you shouldn't need any
Create from within
And you will begin
To see great results aplenty.

EVERYTHING IS A SELF-PROMOTION THESE DAYS.
DISGUISED AS A CONTEST TO TURN A PHRASE.
IT’S DISGUSTING, IT’S CHEAP, IT’S DIRTY NO DOUBT
HAVE YOU HEARD OF MY LATEST?
IT’S CALLED BLACKOUT!

Platt, if you're gonna be a snarky killjoy, at least do it with something approaching proper meter and rhyme:

It's all self-promotion these days,
Even contests to turn a good phrase.
It's dirty no doubt,
But at least my "Blackout"
Has a banner -- 'cause I'm one who pays!

This one is magic related,

I thought of phrase quite sensual
It's a little bit Multi Dimensional
With Impossible Insight
And Proximity we might
Take the magic world Red Handed its essential.

Nice, I like that one better. Explaining a joke isn't a whole lot of fun, but if I must... David is one of my favorite magicians and I consider him a friend. If it wasn't clear that I was being 100% sarcastic. I apologize. Love the contest. See, no fun.

I love to fill minds full of thunder
with illusions immune from asunder
and leave far behind in the context of time
a memory that magic is wonder

peace, charlie

There was a magician quite rotten,
his conjuring skills he'd forgotten,
he tried very hard
to do ambitious card,
but his pasteboards went straight to the bottom.

Here's mine:

There once was a magi named Pat
In shows he liked using his cat
But one day at three
He fell from a tree
No longer the cat in the hat

Thanks!

There once was a man from Elsass
who had cups made from spun brass
When he'd move them around
a ball would be found
and it knocked everyone on their.....

Here is my effort

There once was a hobby called 'Magic'
for those that liked it played with their gadget
cause at pay day you were broke
which made my wife/partner want to choke
and that would be really tragic

lol!
Thanks Daren Rotherham

There was a magician called "Regal"
Who used to do tricks with a Beagal
Someone caused a scene
They said "Hey man that's mean!"
"Because", they exclaimed "it's illegal!"




Couldn't make it fit with "Herman the Mouse"! Smile
