Weekend Wit - Yes its returned :D

The Hypnotist

It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens' Center.

After the community sing along led by Alice at the piano, it was time for the star of the show - Claude the


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" he said.

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 were twinkling as they were reflected from its gleaming surfaces.

A hundred pairs of eyes followed the movements of the gently swaying watch.

They were hypnotized.

And then, suddenly, the chain broke!!!

"S** T" - Shouted Claude, as he watched the precious watch disintegrate in front of him as it hit the floor

It took staff three days to clean the Senior Citizens' Center

....And Claude was never invited there again!
