"The magician became chagrined while trying to perform Cutting The Aces because his assistant stole the spotlight and instead performed Snatched From The Middle from The Book of Destiny, which caused a new star to be born and an old one to fade to obscurity."

I hope a little literary license is okay! Smile

The magician became inordinately proud while performing Theatrical Debut from The Book of Destiny because, pre-show, his assistant did a magic show acted out with playing cards and told in verse, with a finale which caused his assistant to earn real applause.”

“The magician became a amused while performing Tens the Hard Way from The Book of Destiny because his assistant recited the following poem which caused him to laugh;

Ten little magicians did "Rewinding Time". One was eaten by a dinosaur. So there were left nine
Nine little magicians tried the "Jumblemate". One broke his fingers doing it. So there were left eight.
Eight little magicians did the "Billiard Balls". One wanted perform it in heaven. So there were left seven.
Seven little magicians tried "The World’s Greatest One Ball Trick(s)". One did it to a boxers balls. So there were left six.
Six little magicians did perform "Eight Card Flush" live. One was caught by the casino's stuff. So there were left five.
Five little magicians did "Power to Decide" once more. One decided to do a real bullet catch. So there were left four.
Four little magicians did "Triple Psychometry". One perforemed for a sceptic-guy. So there were left three.
Three little magicians did "ESP Duel" on the run. One did not use ESP-cards, but a gun. So there was left one.
One little magician the others again wanted to see. So he saved a bit of money, and bought the Book of Destiny...”

We have a WINNER!

The winner of The Book of Destiny Contest is Michael Rubinstein.

His winning entry was:

“The magician became whiplashed while performing Penny Wise from The Book of Destiny, because his assistant was driving and watching the trick, not the road, which caused them to swerve off the road and land in a pond. The police at the accident remarked that the magician was Penny Wise, Pond foolish.”

I should note that this was a split decision. Two of the principals of Gyromagnetic Press, Larry and Esther voted for Dr. Rubinstein. Okito, the Wonder Bichon Frise abstained from voting because the first time he went to a Vet they removed something from him (but he’s not sure what) and the last time he got a rabies shot.

Congratulations To Michael Rubinstein. He has won an autographed copy of The Book of Destiny and the 2 hour Companion DVD.

Thanks to all who entered the contest. There were so many clever and imaginative entries. The Magic Café has so many creative members. We enjoyed reading all of them.

As a bonus, for anyone who entered the contest and decides to actually buy The Book of Destiny, I will include free the gaffed Bicycle ESP Duel deck which sells normally for $15. Please mention your Café name with your order.

Best,


Larry
