Hey all!

I keep getting weird questions by people whenever they find out that I'm a magician. Well, there are only two main ones people ask...

1. How many decks of cards do you have...

and (the guys ask this one alot...)

2. Can you make my...uhem...*jewels*...disappear...

Now, I'm not one without a witty reply, and I look at them and say, "Would you want me to?" and they have this look Smile

Smile

What weird questions, if any, do you get asked?

Cheers,
Logan

Man, I'm starting to feel very lucky here . . . I've never had any questions that bad , at least not related to magic . . . the weirdest thing somebody said to me was when I had already been doing a lot of magic at school one day and I was going to do "Handkerchief Thru Arm" and the girl I was doing it on said "Just don't make my arm go away!"

I get really annoyed when something in your life goes goes wrong (the plumbing goes, your car breaks doen, you forget your wallet) and then people say this joke like they are the first person ever to think of this diabolically witty line:

"You're the magician, can't you do something about it magically?"

This annoys me most when I ask for help and that is the reply.

Not exactly a wierd question from the public, but this one does rate as offbeat:

I was once listening to an assistant ask about the space within the Doll House where she was hidden. She asked me if I put her in that little room so that she could not see how the trick was done. True story!

I once in awhile get that one.
Something that happens once in awhile that is not annoying or weird but funny when I do one of my change bag rountines for family and friends is they hand me their tissues or socks and ask me if I could change it into a $100 bill for them. Smile Smile Smile

"Are you married?"

"No, it's just my job that makes me this way!"

Old question (usually from a pretty young lady), my favourite retort.

"Was that real magic, or a trick" - said with a worried expression on their faces. Now that's one I like hearing. Man, I'm good!!

I have two replies for that:

1. That's funny. Earlier, she/they asked me that same question about you.

2. This is Las Vegas. For the right kind of money, we can make ANYONE disappear!
