Default A Magic Trick Adapted to Sell Sausage

Here's one of my Favorite Magic Tricks:


20.00 bill from a volunteer

A pen or pencil (magic wand)


a - You Say, "Who Wants to See a Magic Trick? I can make almost anything
that fits in my hand disappear. A watch or a 20.00 bill!"

b - You Make big (Hand to ear) swishing motions with your Magic wand pen.

c - You Twirl or flick the 20.00 bill (To attract eyes)

d - Say "ABRACADABRA." Stick the pen btwn your collar and neck.

e - You say, (You open Your Hand) "Ooops. I goofed and made my Magic Wand Disappear.

f - Unlike Most Magic Tricks - YOU WANT to get caught hiding the pen in
your collar.

g - Cuz when you turn your body - so people can SEE the pen in your collar
Your body is btwn them and the 20.00 - which you stuff in your pocket.

h - When you look down you say in Surprise, "Oh Wow! Now the 20.00
bill is gone."

Sausage Magic in Pennsylvania:

We sent Sam next door to give away pulled pork sausage to Golfers
next to his new BBQ Restaurant.

Sam says he is 20 seconds from the 1st Tee!

60% of golfers He Samples come in and buy a 10.00 pork sandwich.

Thank You Debbie Fields and Steve Jobs for the idea to combine
Magic and Free Samples.


Sam says he attracts a crowd of golfers. Uses a sausage link as his Magic
Wand. A golfer volunteers his 20 bucks.

Because the Magic Trick Attracts a Crowd of Golfers - Sam Give away more
sausage samples - thus sells a lot more sandwiches.

Salesmanship by Testing Magic Tricks on 100's of Coeds at Reed College.
