Humour — 05 March 2013

It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens Center.

Claude the hypnotist explained: “I’m here to put you 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 each of you to keep your eyes 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. A hundred pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch until, suddenly, the chain broke; it slipped from the hypnotist’s fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.

“Shit!” exclaimed the hypnotist.

It took three days to clean up the Senior Citizens Center.

Claude was never invited back.
