Giggle Time–The Hypnotist–

Giggle Time–The Hypnotist–

It was entertainment night at
the senior citizens’ centre.

After the community sing song led by Alice at
the piano.  It was time for the Star of the Show – Claude
the Hypnotist!
Claude explained that he was
going to put the whole audience into a trance.

“Yes, each and every one of  you and all at the same time.” said Claude.
The excited chatter dropped to silence as Claude carefully withdrew from
his waistcoat pocket A beautiful antique gold pocket watch and chain.

“I want you to keep your eyes on this  watch” said Claude, holding the watch
high for all to see.  “It is a very special and valuable watch that has been in
my family for six generations”,  Said Claude.
He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly
chanting,  “Watch the watch — Watch the watch —-Watch the watch”
The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth.
The lights twinkling as they were  reflected from it’s gleaming surfaces.

A hundred and fifty pairs of eyes  followed the movements of the gently swaying watch.
And then, Suddenly, The chain broke!!!

The beautiful watch fell to the stage and burst apart on impact”
“SHIT”, said Claude.

It  took them three days to clean the Senior Citizens’ Center,
And Claude was never invited to entertain again.
