hey i know everyone has had one of these before. where your doing a trick and you do somthing that really messes it up or somone else really messes it up.

mine was when i was using my svengali and i accidentally dropped the deck and all of the cards hit the ground. all of the cards were face up so the trick was was revealed. didnt stop me though kicked the deck out of the way and pulled out my stripper deck and went on with the little show but lets hear some of yalls OOPS's. :lol:

One time I was doing a card trick, and I forced a card that was on the bottom of the deck, but then I got so caught up in my presentation I forgot the card I forced, so I just took a guess at what their card was. At the end of the trick it didn't work because I got their card wrong. However, I did get the number right.(that's the only thing I remembered about the card)

I had a complete mess up while performing Card Toon #1. While riffling through the animation, I was literally only 2 or 3 cards from "Bob's" revalation of the chosen card when the deck slipped from my hand, hit the table and spread out for all to see :oops: . I fortunately swept up the mess quick enough (I hope) to keep from exposing the effect, but needless to say, once the deck is out of order like that you can't continue. The spectators kept saying through the rest of my act, "gee could you finish that cartoon trick now?" Well...not really... :roll:

I don't get that alcohol joke at all... hmm...

Anyway, I've had a couple big goof ups. This one time I was doing this drawn out mentalism effect that has a lot of build. Usually I hate those kind of effects, but this one has perfect motivation for every phase. Anyway, that's not the point. What happened was I musta messed up a false shuffle or something, cause I got to the end of finally revealing their thought of card (yes, its merely thought of... that's why its so good :D ) and I was totally wrong... I just laughed and was like... "hey, geniune mind reading can't be right all the time... lemme try again..." so I just classic forced him and because of the nature of the trick before I stalled and said, "Now remember, you are merely thinking of a card..." (to take the emphasis away from him choosing it)... and I read his mind... and he almost died... happy ending!
