Magician Riddle

Picture Jon, a party magician, carrying three rabbits.
Each rabbit weighs 100 pounds (they're genetically engineered).
While strolling down a street, he comes to a rickety bridge.

A sign posted says, "Maximum 400 lbs."

Jon weighs 200 lbs.
Still, Jon safely crossed the bridge.

How?

When The Magician Walked onto The Stage They Laughed, But When He Started to Perform...

A short and stout teapot of a man waddled onto the stage. His very image prompts a ripple of laughter among the audience. By the middle of his show, everyone in the auditorium is in rapt attention, some members of the audience even get up from their seats to get closer to the performer and watch more carefully.

If nature ever intended Max Malini to become a magician, not even a mentalist could’ve guessed it...

10 Magicians That Will Make You Laugh ​​​​​​​without Even Magic

Magicians often use humor in their acts as a form of misdirection.  Even without this potent tool in the magician's arsenal, magic often elicits laughter.  Why should this be?

It’s probably to do with the release of tension. The tension is caused by the perception of something going very wrong—wrong with the laws of the universe breaking.  Because it’s a show, and not a truly spontaneous event in your ordinary and mundane life, you know that you’re safe.  That allows you to feel secure and laugh at the unsettling absurdity of it.  Moreover, if you don’t laugh directly in response to the magic moments, you’ll find yourself laughing at your friends who do have normal reactions to a supernormal event...

7 Reasons Why Donald Trump Will Never Be A Good Magician

People have said some pretty mean things about Donald Trump.  He's been described as "a privileged gasbag," "having a thrifty complexity," and being "one-dimensional" (except for his inter-dimensional hair)  On the other hand, he has a tremendous necktie.

I like him as much as the next guy, and would argue that he has more than just a tremendous necktie.  He has charisma, he has the gift of gab, and he's a born showman. 

So why would I write such a damaging post about his not being fit to be a magician?
