It was entertainment night at the Senior Centre.


Claude the hypnotist exclaimed, “I’m here to put you 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. It’s been in my family for six 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 became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off of its polished surface. Hundreds of eyes followed the swaying watch until, suddenly, it slipped from the hypnotist’s fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into pieces.


“SHIT!” said the hypnotist.


It took three days to clean up the Senior Centre.


Claude was never invited back.
