There are so many inappropriate things I could say about what I see in that photo.

No, they're just stretching.

Considering my profession are you not marginally surprised I refrained from such comments?

I would think many magicians would love to get this reaction when they performed. It's nice see people enjoying themselves while watching magic. Great photo.

That's the least realistic Ding Dong I've ever seen.

I feel compelled to point out, I'm about 99% sure those are not the normal bunnies, but Eddie Ace hand carved sponge bunnies.

Yes, Damien, I am indeed impressed. You should hire that woman on the right immediately.

As for the sponge bunnies, Lance Burton would NEVER use cheap bunnies. Only the best.

I have the same set of bunnies. That means I will get the same reactions - right?

Interesting photo showing four distinct flavors of surprise. Also noticed how the reaction to the moment has not yet propigated to the folks just a few feet away.

Bravo all around for that one. Thanks for sharing it.
