Brilliantly Funny ACR

Everyone who has ever picked up a deck of cards has fiddled with an Ambitious Card Routine. In fact, if you haven't bored the hell out of someone with an endless, pointless, repetitive ACR then you cannot call yourself a card magician. An ACR is the equivolent of the Native American "Vision Quest". That's right, it is a card magician's spiritual journey into the forest of magic (or is it a magical forest?) in an effort to find themselves - pretty deep stuff.

Most ACRs are boring and derivative. They all have the same patter and boring lines such as, "...and when we snap our fingers, the card JUMPS back to the top!" Every few years something or, in this case, someone comes along to revolutionize the way we bore specatator's with our ACR.

I humbly intorduce you to BerkelyJL of the Magic Cafe! Not only has he come up with a new presentation idea for the ACR by calling it his "Award Winning Trained Deck of Cards" but he also adds a brilliant piece of comedy to the routine by comparing his deck of card to one of two hillarious things:
  1. A Pet Rock!!!
  2. A Talking Iguana that Eats Dancing Mice!!!

Of course, BerkelyJL cannot decided which of the two is more funny (funnier?) so he needs the good folks at the Magic Cafe to help him decide. You can check it out at: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=106389&forum=24&8

I am not a comedian. I don't write comedy for TV or Movies. I am not claiming to be an expert. However, I do know that these two "jokes" are about as effective as Dale Ernhart's seatbelt. In my opinion, comedy and jokes should be funny - but that's just me.

Well, if magic doesn't work out for BerkelyJL he can always become a writer just like THIS guy

At least the the people who responded to this topic at the Cafe were wise enough not to endorse either of these lines.
