WMF Drunk Magicians
I am drunk as I write this. So I am knowledgeable... or something like this. So here is to all the drunk magicians out there. That means performing drunk magicians. When we are drinking we cannot do magic properly, unless no sleight of hand is involved and the method is absolutely fool proof.
I have seen magicians, who take out their cards and start "card-tricking" away as if there is no tomorrow. Most often it flashes like hell, and even if the magician in question would be aware of that fact, most often he would not care about it assuming the others are drunk as well.
And while the audience may have fun, that particular magician does bring down the magic image even more. Suddenly magic is no longer an art, but a drunk sport, like a bar bet.
There is a time and a place for everything, even doing drunken magic. We call it magic circle meeting. But please stay away from the normal people.
I am guilty of this and I hereby declare, that I will not do it anymore. I will still do magic for drunk people, but only when I am sober. One beer and the cards tricks have to stop.
