David Copperfield Fights Crime with MAGIC

David Copperfield performed an incredible trick this week…making 3 teenagers disappear from West Palm Beach, Florida, and reappear…in JAIL.

A few months back, while leaving a show, the World Famous Illusionist and 2 lady assistants were approached by 3 teenage boys who attempted to rob them. The lady assistants handed over their belongings without incident, but when the teens approached Copperfield, he turned out his pockets to reveal…emptiness. In actuality he was carrying his passport, wallet, and cell phone. He told the judge that it “wasn’t difficult to make it seem like nothing was there.” (then there was a loud bang, and the courtroom filled with smoke, and when the smoke cleared, the judge was sitting naked on the witness stand and David Copperfield was sitting in the judge's chair with the gavel and all of the robes and power and stuff*).

How dumb do you have to be to try to rob David Copperfield and then believe him when he shows you that his pockets are empty? The man made the Statue of Liberty disappear! He levitated over the
Grand Canyon! He WALKED THROUGH THE GREAT WALL OF CHINA! Of course he had his wallet, cell phone, and passport on him somewhere. Hell! If they had patted him down he was probably carrying a pirate’s chest full of gold, a couple of Picasso paintings, and no less then 87 lbs of diamonds. I mention these items because in researching David Copperfield I discovered that he consistently makes $57 Million a year (about what I make) and is routinely on the list of the top 10 highest paid celebrities in the world. Amazing since I thought he was dead.

The teen would be robbers will be spending a couple years in jail. They hope to finish high school from prison, but something tells me these guys…not so smart. One lawyer commented that his client “is remorseful for what occurred, has told the truth about his involvement and would like everything to disappear.” Presumably pun intended.

*That didn't actually happen, but it would have been a really AWESOME trick.

I think his greatest trick was getting into Claudia Schiffers' pants. Now that was amazing.

Now that's just not fair! Why can't he make the hood that lives next door to me disappear. I only live like 50 miles further south. Damn.

P.S. Bombay's right.

You know, I'm convinced that half of his technique is based on distracting eyebrow wiggling. You can't help but stare...
