Does any one know any good jokes a mentalist can say during his show?

I sometimes use the line, "I'm considered one of the best mentalists in the country......In the city, well...that may be a different matter. (magicians can be used here, too)

I like the typical one

"So Whats Your name"

"Jane"

"I knew that"

For example in a Book Test:
"I need to really focus on that words, so clear your mind...that was quick..."
There is a whole lot that can be done. Just muck around with it.
"I'm going to see if I can see what your thinking. So if any of you are picturing me naked...I will know <points to a man in the front row>"
Just slip into a mindreading routine "don't think about that you dirty man!"
Hold your hand to their forehead and have a concentrated "...I'm gettin' nothing..."
All of these things can generate laughs if delivered properly in a 'tongue in cheek' manner.
IT'S ALL ABOUT DELIVERY AND TIMING!!!

Here's a good one for any trick where you, the mentalist is being blindfolded by a spectator:

"That's right, put it right around my head like that. You see, this is why mentalists have big foreheads!"

if you have a few people in the audience that have participated in a mentalism effect, at the end of your affect say... "ok ill make sure to pay those helpers after the show" *smirks*

if its performed right, you will get historical laughs like crazy.

if you are using two spectators, "stand exactly as far from each other"
