For reasons irrelevant, I'd like to know how the community refers to the mentalism gimmick known as SUC.

Do you (personally) say "ess yew see" or do read it as a single word that sounds like "suck"?

There are more than the two options that you gave. One could say all of the words that the acronym stands for. One could also just make a sucking noise without actually saying any words at all.

Me too just S..U..C...3 syllables.

This is generally referred to only during discussions between magicians/mentalists. Such times if you pronounce SUC rhyming with !@#$, the discussion seldom stays on track Smile

The c stands for case, so you're saying case wallet!

Its like when I hear people say PIN number, what do you think the N stands for? Smile

I've heard people say "PIN number" and "ATM machine" in the same sentence. My head almost exploded.

Hey this just struck me....

"I forgot my PIN NUMBER at the ATM MACHINE which delayed my ETA ARRIVAL, still I tried to reach ASAP POSSIBLE."

"Soo-see." Smile

We have an official answer! I'd like to thank Ray Noble who contacted Mark Strivings on my behalf to ask the creator how it should be pronounced. Here is Mark's reply:

_____________________________________

Hi Ray,

I always say the three letters. S-U-C. I never say suck.

But that's just me. Hope you're well.

Best,

Mark Strivings

The question is... Who are you all talking to when you say this? Other suc users or audience members?

I never say the name, and definitely DO NOT EVER say it three times in a row, or Mark will show up at your door, eat all your leftovers and move your furniture around with Abba's Greatest Hits playing in the background, in a bizarre demonstration of musical Feng Shui.

I swear, it happened to me!
