blog #153 >> Book of the Week:
1000 Ways to have Fun with Professional Magic

Meet a swell fellow! His name is Pumpernickle and he's been my friend for many a year. He's the cutest little monkey around and he loves hanging out in the pages of this old magic catalog of that was my grandpa's. If you're ever looking out for a corny practical joke this is the book for you. It's full of "pocket tricks, illusions, and joke novelties." And I always enjoy looking through it. Where else can you find "Snowstorm Pills: Place one of these harmless pills on the end of a lit cigarette and in a short time you will have a perfect indoor snowstorm. 2 boxes for 29¢" or the instructions for "Walking Thur Steel: The last word in solid thru illusion. A committee is invited on stage to examine a solid steel plate in a framework. While committee surrounds the plate, you actually walk right through it!! Presentation secret and drawings. Just 50¢"
