That's beautiful. Is it your own? Or where did you get it from?
I didit. Me...I, however, will be selling it in my upcoming book "Veron Was A Hack and 23 Other Attention Seeking Devices."
Just kidding. Here is the story I use:
MAGICIAN FINDS CARD AFTER SIX WEEK SEARCH
Two Of Hearts Finally Revealed.
CANBERRAAfter six weeks of performing a single card trick, local Canberra magician Nicholas J. Johnson, both physically and mentally exhausted, has finally revealed the two of hearts as the chosen card.
I knew I was in for trouble when I let the spectator shuffle the cards said Johnson, the conjuror behind the marathon magic trick,normally I have a couple of options up my sleeves but if they mess up the deck there is not much I can do.
The trick almost ended in disaster in the first few minutes when Johnson, sure he had figured out the spectators selection, almost miscalled the card as the jack of diamonds.
Luckily, he changed his mind at the last minute, instead opting to spend six long weeks carrying out DNA and fingerprint testing on the deck of cards as well as a comprehensive pyschological profile of the spectator.
This is not the first time Nicholas has performed time consuming illusions in the name of entertainment. In 1997 he spent three months pulling rabbits out of a hat. At the time, he commented; Man, those things breed like rabbits.
Today however, Johnson told reporters, After the rabbit in the hat fiasco, I was keen to get back to some classic magic like pulling coins from small childrens ears and card tricks. Lets face it, with cards, the worse thing that is going to happen is that you might get a really bad paper cut.
And while the plucky prestidigitator has barely recovered he is already planning his next prolonged effect where he plans to saw over 200 women in half using only a shoebox and a butter knife.
The spectator who chose the two of hearts over a month ago could not be reached for comment.
