We realized that from the "17" in your "handle".

I was 17 once! (7- years ago!) PM if you wish. POSSIBLY, I can make a few suggestions.

Clay, you wrote:” The woofle dust concept for magicians existed, and was used in their patter, in the early 18th century (so nearly 300 years ago).”
Would you provide a reference/url for a source for this information? Otherwise it is just an opinion and not evidence based.

I recall that Close-up magician Don Alan used the term Woofle Dust in many effects. Bob

I am thinking that the term has been commonly used for a very long time. Most of us has spoke those words at least once.

Buy the way, I get mine for free and for a lifetime supply... Smile

Should I be performing at a Bar Mitzvah I call it "Magic Mitzvah Dust," available at any Kosher magic shop. Also I mention you can buy it at non-Jewish magic shops but they have a different name for it. They call it "Holy Good Deed Powder."

Well, maybe you had to be there. Ethnic humor is kind of dead I guess.
