I am not a professional magician but here's what i said to someone asking me how I did "the zombie"

"I can't tell you because the IBM (international Brotherhood of Magicians) will find out and not let me join!"

I remember when i was about 15, i did a coin vanish for this REALLY hot girl and she asked me how it was done and i said smugly:

"I cannot tell you, it is the code of magic. If i told you, i would be disrespecting the art of magic, it would make all my study and practising of this art a complete waste of time."

And she said:

"I will kiss you for 5 minutes straight if you tell me"

and i said

"Okay, it's called a classic palm, let me show you ..."

True story, not right, but it was well worth it.

I would have done exactly the same too. ...BUT bargaining for much longer time.

And then... "Would you like me to show you another?" :wink:

Hahaha.
You are certainly right, i could have bartered a bit more.

I just realised i didn't actually answer the question but that story just had to be told. We men are pathetic creatures, well I know i certainly am.
I guess you could say the response i give to this question depends on how attracted i am to the inquirer.

I have not read this entire thread, but people who get asked the question and say "Magic !!" really annoy me. That response is the most patronising, pathetic, tie-with-cards-on-it retort ever. Maybe if you are a kids performer or something it would have the desired effect of them not hating you as a result.

The 'it's magic !!!' response is only used by me if my girlfriend asks because it annoys the edited out of her and i think she is cute when she is mad.

I must admit, i do like the 'Divine Intervention' retort, I think I may steal that one.

Marc.

Hahaha, go the jazz hands.

"Very well" is another outdated response that i am ashamed i have used many times in the past.

I believe Gregory Wilson uses, "I'll take that as a compliment."
