I go to my biggest gig of the year, a Christmas party with 350 people. 1/4 kids. Assuming that everybody will be standing since there's no big meal being served, I break out the cards, sponge balls and forks and enter the room.

Everybody is seated. CRAP. There's like a sea of tables.

I break out my chop cup, which is the strongest table opener in the history of magic. Period. Kids scream, women feint and throw themselves at you. Yes it's that good. It rattles. Huh. I inspect the cup, and it's somehow gotten dislodged and is now rattling when the ball is dropped in.

NOOOOOOOOOO! GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD!

I cry. Maybe nobody will notice.

"What is that noise?"

Or not. I throw it into the trash can and say my tearful fairwell to my favorite table trick of all time. Had I known this situation would occur, I'd have brought The Revelation. But no, I didn't. The event organizer announces the magician is here. Kids swarm in. Santa arrives. Kids swarm out. This teen girl with monster boobs is following me around wanting to see more tricks. I start my pickup lines on her. Wait, what am I doing...

"What's in your pocket?"

Why do I still have two lemons in my pocket? I throw those away too. First table in, Jay Sankey's NAILED! Weird opener, but hey I go with it. Ambitious Card with Card to Wallet ending, Liquid Metal, Out of This World. Ugh, it's been 15 minutes and I've only done one table.

Liquid Metal
Run to next table

My hands hurt and I've only covered like half the tables. A small family of 15 kids is following me. Sponge Balls, Color Monte, people taking pictures with kids climbing all over me. They're messing up my hair. I smell like spitup.

WOW by Masuda using lame Texas Ranger card holder story that I made up as I was talking. Quantum Bender 2. Hey look it's a bent quarter. Liquid Metal. If I only had my Chop Cup, I'd be owning this place. French Kiss by Wayne Houchin. Marked card trick from Party Animal. Double ACAAN from Party Animal. Now I'm bored.

I find the big boob chick and tell her to jam the 7 of Clubs into her bra, then act surprised later if I ask for it (Card to Bra). I forget about it, and she leaves with my red bicycle card in her cleavage. Oh that would have been huge. Where was she last Friday at the club where nobody would talk to me?

I make two tables get up and do a grand Liquid Metal to end all Liquid Metals. Nobody likes sponge balls. Card Under Watch is a monstrous hit. People fall asleep on the ACR, my epic fork bending performance was too much.

I get paid and leave.

Hostess specifically hired me because of that effect, plus it was the most requested of the evening.

I noticed in one of your video reviews that next to you LM shrine you had a buttload of forks... what type do you use and how expensive is it to buy in bulk? I have LM and I am just starting at it
