As a fan of classical magic, I've always enjoyed the image of the magician showing a piece of paper, rolling it up into a cone, and spilling something out of it.
When I came across a pamphlet in the Magic Castle Library entitled "50 Tricks With a Paper Cone" I couldn't resist having a look at it.
I came upon an interesting idea for a cut-and-restored necktie, where the magician "accidentally" cuts his tie into bits and places the pieces into a paper cone. "He peeps into the cone, but despondently shakes his head." The magician is encouraged to "Play up the harassed magician to the best of your ability, keep peeing into the cone, etc."
Clearly not a trick for a female magician. It involves a necktie.
