Something Silly With Shoot: Every magician needs a few gags to liven up the moment. Shoot teaches for the first time his method of shooting a rubber band from the fingers onto the floor where the rubber band literally spins backwards to the magician’s shoe. Learn how to take a beautiful silver spoon and bend it 90 degrees, only to restore it unharmed, much to the owner’s delight. Then learn how to take your thumb completely off while it still moves in midair. Next, stretch your thumb inches away from your hand while watching it move with your other fingers. Finally, Shoot teaches us how to shrink a crayon while pushing it up the nose and pulling it out of the eye. Pure “eye” candy! Cap your silly journey off while watching Daffy Duck attempt to sway Porky Pig into letting him become a big named actor in Hollywood in a classic cartoon of magical comedy.
