What do you guys say to the always surprising question "can you make my wife disappear?" or better still (for those restaurant workers out there); "can you make the check disappear?".

Oh... and I just might "borrow" a few of those lines, too ;) ... Pretty tired of the same old "well, for a good price, anybody can disappear!" :sleep:

Jon Allen and pepka posted responses to those questions in this earlier thread.

(I remembered the thread because I liked the Paul Daniels response to the "Can you make my wife disappear?" question that is in Jon Allen's post.)

Ron Geoffries' response (referenced by Pepka in the linked thread) is also a great one... but who could afford the pocket space to carry the counter around?

"Keep saying things like that, sir, and she'll disappear all on her own."

"Funny thing, she was in here 20 minutes ago... asking the same thing"

"Let me have sex with her once and I promise you'll never see her again."

Paul Wilson has a nice answer for the wife question, "Didn't I do that for you a few years ago?"

As for the check, I usually say "That's how I lost my last job."
