Spectators often make wild guesses on how a trick is done. Out of all those explainations, which one is the most ridiculous?

This is mine:

I did the invisble deck to my cousin one day and after flipping over his named card, he was stunned. He thought that the deck was sound activated and when I named the card out loud the card would flip over in the deck...I just shook my head and put my cards away trying to hold in my laughter

The Raven:
My freind Donna was telling everyone about my insane sleight abilities.

Ambitious Card:
All the cards are the same. So sweet when you hand them the deck of cards after you perform.

Location: Don't Bend Forks with your eye.
PYro Perception: "You have a machine in your pocket that puts a plastic thing on your finger, and when it gets hot, it looks like a blister."

Optical Bend(Mind Bender): "Thats one of those Friction Spoons that when you rub it bends."

Tip of the Tongue: "You swallowed the card before the trick!'
(This one I don't understand, if I swallowed the card before the trick, how did they pick it and sign it.) :shock:

The Matrix: (Typical Spec Solution) "Thats easy, your just sliding them across." Which was funny. This one time this kid thought he would be funny and put his hand in the middle of the four cards. I told him that I wouldn't be responsibe for any damage. And that he might ruin the trick. I did it and he freaked.

I performed the Vanishing Hanky on a friend with my sleeves down, he thought it was cool but claimed I just had it up my sleeve.

I pulled my sleeves up and reproduced it right in front of his face. He then says "Well, I still think that it was up your sleeve."

Ya that makes sense, the hanky went up my sleeve even though my slevs were rolled up... :roll:

:D

Isn't that how it works? lol
No, everyone knows it's not voice activated... you have to type in their selected card in an invisible keyboard located at the back of the card case. That's how it works!

:lol: I can relate to that one. Heck, that was the method I came up with the first time I saw it. "He slides it over at the speed of light!"

When I do coin vanishes and pull the coin from my own shoe, the specs say I slipped the coin into a secret pocket and it slid down my pant leg and into the back of my shoe. One time they searched my pockets for about fifteen minutes before they realized I was wearing regular pants. :)

Heh. I hope they were female. ;) Otherwise that could be quite uncomfortable to deal with for 15 minutes. ;)
