It was opening night at the Orpheum, and the Amazing Claude was topping the bill. People came from miles around to see the famed hypnotist do his act. As Claude took to the stage, he announced, "I intend to hypnotize each and every member of this audience."
The excitement was electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch. He said, "This watch is very special. 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 Claude's fingers and fell to the floor breaking into hundreds of pieces.
Claude said, "Shit"
It took three weeks to clean up the theatre!!!
