"THE MAGIC
SHOW


STEP RIGHT UP, STEP RIGHT IN TO OUR MAGIC SHOW!!
Thank you, thank you! (applause) I will begin by asking for a volunteer.

YOU SIR, PLEASE STAND UP!

Now I want you to think of your age, yes your age! Keep it to yourself though, thank you!

Now, remember to yourself only, multiply your answer by 2, then add 5.
ARE YOU KEEPING UP, SIR?

It gets a little harder here, multiply the answer you have by 50 and subtract 365.

MY GOOD GOD MAN, WE DON'T HAVE ALL DAY!

Now that you finally have youranswer, could you be kind enough and reach into your pocket and count your change, under a dollar, yes, under one dollar.

NOW, BEAR WITH ME MY GOOD MAN, JUST ANOTHER MOMENT, PLEASE!

There's only ONE thing left for you to do before I let you sit down, ADD 115 to your answer.

Now you've done that,TELL US YOUR ANSWER!

IS IT NOT TRUE SIR, THE FIRST TWO NUMBERS OF YOUR ANSWER IS YOUR AGE AND THE SECOND TWO NUMBERS THE CHANGE IN YOUR POCKET?

AUDIENCE, ISN'T THAT AMAZING! (applause) Thank you, Thank you. Now my kind sir, I beg of you, sit down and rest; I think the audience will agree; anybody your age ___ with such a small amount of money in one's pocket, ____ surely has to take it quite easy. (laughter)

Thank you all; mention us to your friends and I welcome all of you back to the MacLaren clan tent real soon.
