For all you folks who play at Senior Centers:

Here is a story to tell them.  Use it as your own guaranteed to get you 

    Tom Wiggins

 The Hypnotist at the Senior Center 
   It was entertainment night at the Senior Center and the Amazing 
Claude was topping the bill.
   People came from miles around to see the famed hypnotist do his 
  As Claude went to the front of the meeting room, he announced,
  "Unlike most hypnotists who invite two or three people up here to be  
put into a trance,
  I intend to hypnotize each and every member of the audience." 

    The excitement was almost electric as Claude 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. It's 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 mesmerized 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. 

  "Shit" said the Hypnotist. 

  It took three days to clean up the senior center 

crash boom bang rimshot!
