"Blitz was a trailblazer-a magician who was as funny as he was baffling. He considered a show only party successful if the spectators were merely mystified. When they roared with laughter, he knew they had been entertained."

Interesting; my password to The Learned Pig is "signorblitz", and I always wondered where he got that from. Thanks. And no, I'm not going to post my username! :P

An interesting aside is that 13 magicians performed under the original's name, although none with his genius.
One unfortunate copy cat ended up in the mental and used to plague the attendants with, "has anyone got a deck of cards?"
AD as in A.D...we're not to use that any more..we must write C.E...but it gives me a chance to trot out my Grade Nine and Grade Ten Latin courses. Jones as in that wacko song I used to play on the air, And Then Along Came Jones"
As in, " and then he lit the dynamite..and then.and then..and then along came Jones!"

I'm assuming the ad and jones talk is about my username. The a and d are initials, Jones is my last name. So if you were to say it out loud, it would A-D-Jones. Not ad-Jones.

A.D. ...I think my discourse on ad was similar to your oh so-fast zinger on magic registered nurse's teaching about the oneness of humanity. :wink:
