Heinrich the Magic Hare (19)

Just in case you have wondered what has happened to Heinrich the Magic Hare since his last appearance: Around Halloween, he got obsessed with the time-honored Mango Tree trick, but when he tried it, something went wrong big time! In fact, he had conjured up a major pumpkin which kept growing and growing and almost crushed him against the kitchen ceiling! Having overcome the shock, Heinrich decided to eat the evil pumpkin. The other day, he finally finished the task. He will need to get gym lessons now, but then he will be back in magic training, too, and continue his education as the premier magic assistant out there!

The other day, my eager apprentice, Heinrich the Magic Hare, mused about the role of holes in magic — black holes, holes in coins, wandering holes on cards, and a lots of other holes (including magic’s biggest a$$holes). He concluded that holes have opened a whole new dimension in magic. I couldn’t disagree.

The other day, my eager apprentice, Heinrich the Magic Hare, studied the guarantee cards of various manufacturers and asked me whether I knew of any majishun or card player who, annoyed by rough edges or asymmetrical cuts, had ever send in a card or a deck for a replacement. I couldn’t think of anybody.

The other day, my eager apprentice, Heinrich the Magic Hare, learned about the interplay of inspiration and transpiration (to quote Thomas Edison): Putting a deck of cards into a bottle looks like an impossible thing, and it takes just a glance to admire it, but “half of eternity” (as we say in German) to get the #%§!% thing in!
