I Hate Magicians
Most people find clowns creepy. Me? I hate magicians. There I said it. The whole point of a magic show is simple; "I know something you don't know and I'm going to make you look stupid in the process."
I remember kids parties. There's this creepy magician entertaining the kids, pulling a silver dollar out from behind a six-year old girl's ear. All the while giving off this John Gacy vibe.
I like Penn and Teller because they get. The do magic while making fun of themselves. "Ironic magic!"
But sadly they are the only ones. The rest of these charlatans continue their pursuit of fame by weirding out preteens at children's parties until somebody finally recognizes them off the predator list.
And hypnotists? Don't get me started. "You're getting sleepy." Yeah. There's a reason for that. You suck!
