    Hypnotist at the Senior Center

    It was Entertainment Night at the Senior Center, and the Amazing Claude
    was topping the bill. People came from miles around to see the famed
    Hypnotist do his stuff.

    As Claude went to the front of the Meeting Room, he announced "Unlike
    most hypnotists who invite two or three people up here to be put into a
    trance, I intend to hypnotize each and every member of the audience."

    The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful Antique pocket watch from his coat. "I want you each to keep your eye on this
    antique watch. It's a very special watch, having been in my family for 6 generations."

    He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting
    "Watch the watch, Watch the watch, Watch the watch..."

    The crowd was mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light
    gleaming off its polished surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch.

    Suddenly, it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.

    "Crap!!" shouted the hypnotist.

    It took three days to clean up the senior center.
