I'm going to a friend's party this weekend, who on the invite pointed out that the attractions on offer included their new goldfish, a tacky white phone and loads of free toilet paper (it's a long story as to how they've acquired the toilet paper, and you don't want to hear it right now). She then later on said this to me;

Don't worry - no expectation of magic tricks, etc, though if you can perform miracles with toilet paper, goldfish and phones, we'd probably be intrigued.

Now, that sounds like a challenge to me, and those that know me know I'm exactly the wrong person to jokingly make bizarre challenges too. So, what can I do with a goldfish, a 'phone and a load of toilet paper?

The most obvious idea is a triple card-to-impossible-location gag; have three cards selected, one will be discovered in/beneath the goldfish bowl, one inside one of the toilet rolls, and for the third I'm thinking of using the phone revelation gag from Richard Pinner's lectures. That's just one idea, though.

Any other ideas?
The goldfish has to survive this, BTW.

How about splitting one goldfish into two goldfish? (Then a third one and EATING it!).

Gross them out.

Show an Ickle Pickle Aquarium. Cut gold fish from carrots (before going) and have them floating in the aquarium. Remark that maybe you should have never considered using animals in magic. However, gold fish are bite sized. So even dead, they are good for something. Pick them out and eat them (the carrots). From ten steps away they look enough like dead gold fish that no one wants to see more. Take out a large silk (or a real cloth napkin) and wipe your mouth. Shake out the napkin and cover the aquarium with it. Lift the aquarium slightly and then put it back down. Then say, "But I get so tired of gold fish." Wisk away the napkin and show live gold fish swimming in the aquarium. You can leave it out because there is nothing to see but water and live gold fish.

Use Bob's carrot fish. Inject them with stage blood before hand, wrap them in toilet paper and wack them with phone. Smile

I have posted this elsewhere, but I must do it again.

MarcoM once told me that if you slice a goldfish a certain way and drop it into a glass of water, it looks just like a piece of carrot.

Nowadays phones are becoming smaller and smaller, I've even seen some phones the size of cards. This means if you were very careful you could palm his phone to make it disappear

Using toilet paper you could do pretty much any sponge ball routine by scrunching them up.( nice routine in "on the spot").

I don't have a clue how to incorporate goldfish into a routine (I'm never good with live things, I'd probably end up killing them).

Just found this post, though it's probably no use now how about vanishing the fish in the toilet rooll andthen reproducing it from the insideof the phone

I'm presuming the phone is a standard type that plugs into the wall. If that is the case, you could do a cut and restored phone cord. I'm also surprised nobody has mentioned the "Mr. Wizard" routine.

If you got a thumb tip type thing that can hold goldfish, you could wrap the toilet paper round your thumb and apparently produce goldfish from it.

Just realised that this party happened several months ago. What did you do?

Cups and balls, you can use toilet paper for balls, phone parts for cups, and a goldfish for a final load
