Claude the Hypnotist
It was entertainment night at the local Senior Citizens Centre, and Claude the hypnotist explained:
“I’m here to put you all 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 waistcoat pocket.
“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.”
“Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch…”
The crowd became mesmerised as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface. A hundred pairs of ancient eyes followed the swaying watch until, suddenly, the chain broke; it slipped from the hypnotist’s fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into myriad pieces.
“SHIT !” said Claude the Hypnotist.
