    Muskogee Ok.
    It was opening night at the Orpheum and the Amazing Mario was topping
    the bill. People came from miles around to see the famed hypnotist do
    his stuff.
    As Mario took to the stage, he announced, "Unlike most stage
    hypnotists who invite two or three people up onto the stage to be put into
    a trance,
    I intend to hypnotise each and every member of the audience."
    The excitement was almost electric as Mario withdrew a beautiful
    antique pocket watch from his coat. "I want you each to keep your eye
    on this antique watch. It's a very special watch. Its been in my
    family for six generations."
    He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly
    chanting, "Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch...."
    The crowd became mesmerised as the watch swayed back and forth, light
    gleaming off its polished surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed
    the swaying watch, until suddenly it slipped from the hypnotist's
    fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.
    "Crap" said the hypnotist.
    It took three weeks to clean up the theatre.
