Ron has beeen known to create some pretty bizaare magic! This one fits
the bill. It is one of Ron's earlier effects, created in the 1980's. We
found a few and once they are gone, this marvelous effect will be discontinued.
Here is what the audience sees. The onlookers are shown several cards which
are all different. A participant chooses a card and then our card worker
snaps his fingers and he claims the chosen card has magically reversed
itself in the packet. When the face-down cards are spread, there is only
one face-up card, but unfortunately for the magician, it is the wrong card!
At this point, our card worker introduces a card and claims is "a
- cut - above - the - rest." This card is then rubbed across the top
card of the face-down packet. Next, the packet is turned face-up and our
wonderworker shakes the packet. A face-down, card falls out of the packet,
but the card is partial card, with about 1/3 of the card's length missing!
Next, our card worker displays the faces of the rest of the packet and
the chosen card is not amongst them! The cut card is then turned face -
up and it is the chosen card! Finally, when the cut- above -the - rest
card is turned face - up it is a card with a frog's face as depicted. As
the audience watches, a 1/3 piece of card rises from the the frog's mouth
by itself! Our performer removes the piece and it is the missing piece
of the chosen card. This is an extremely entertaining effect with magic
and comedy along with the bizaar all rolled into one. The chosen card does
not have to be the same card all the time and it is an instant reset, perfect
for walk-around magic!
