Seriously Folks

Have you seen this one? It came to me as an e-mail and since I'm so superstitious (NOT!), and don't want to break the chain and incur seven years of the black plague (WHATEVER), on my family I thought I'd save us all and quite possibly the rest of you by just posting it here. I mean, it is my one goal in life to save the world and all of the human species and some of the cat population from the black plague. So here you go:

(My satirical commentary has been added in Italics because I like being sarcastic and I like italics.)

C'mon pick your card.

And what he really wants you to do is look him STRAIGHT in the eyes, not straigth. So do it. Look into his eyes and THINK.

Yes, I know that's a little creepy.

Just do it though.

He doesn't know you. He can't see you.


He is David Copperfield after all.

It's GONE. G-O-N-E. Gone.

How'd he do that?

SPOILER: There is more satirical commentary and the answer behind how Mr. Copperfield pulled this one off in the comments. Comment along.

But before you do that please go vote for our adorable picture to win the Wii:

Click on the picture, it'll take you right to the place to vote. Then scroll down to the bottom past all the finalist pictures. Mine is title "it's my crazy life" (catchy, eh).

Tell all your friends to vote (for mine!) too.

I'm not sure if the person who sent this to me reads my blog (stop lurking and leave a comment if you are reading. You know who you are and I would love to hear from you) I wonder, but am to afraid to ask, if she forwarded this to me because she really believed it or if she knew the trick and just wanted everyone in her address book to stare in awe and wonder at the magic that is David Copperfield. To you all I ask: Did you really fall for that one?

If you need to know how he does that:

None of the cards from the first picture are in the last picture. So no matter which card you pick, it won't be there.

I'd seen this one before and was thinking, "If Trish falls for that skeezy David Copperfield, I'm gonna hunt her down!" Whew--you didn't take the bait. So proud of you.

Eh...David Copperfield...SKEEZE. That's him.

I thought of you yesterday...took my sick self and the girls to the library and while my youngest was in the "toddler area," another mother dropped her small child off and walked away. To the computers. And just left him there with me. Without so much much as a glance or a "hey, would you mind to make sure he doesn't accidentally die while I look at porn?" I was all, "OOOOOOOOHHHHH--so THIS is the supervised play area Trish was talking about. I see. It all starts with me, apparently."

Karen said...

It was hook line and sinker for me until I read your comment.
Oh, I am so let down!
I thought he'd know he could be my king of hearts!
Thanks for spoiling it!!!

Great job on the photo contest!

Emily said...

Ahhhhhhhhhhahaha. That card trick was hilarious!

Heather said...

David Copperfield is a very powerful magician and I totally believe in him and would appreciate it if you all wouldn't make fun of him in any way.

I'M JUST KIDDING!! I had to stipulate this because you can't hear my sarcasm over the internet...which is unfortunate.

When do you find out if you've won the wii?

Nicole said...

Ok, I'm slow. Glad you explained that one. You picture is darling, I just went and voted. I love the music on your blog.
