The Greatest Magic Trick, Ever

images[5]Daily Prompt: Ha Ha Ha

Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with a unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!

An out-of-work magician finally landed a job on a vacation cruise ship. He works the entire summer and is quite a hit.

The captain loves him and continues his employment. The captain catches the act every night, but eventually tires of it so instead making his obligatory presence he sends his parrot. Every night the parrot watches the act from his perch on the captain’s table. It also knows the act backward and forward

Eventually the parrot knows the act so well that he gives away the ticks. “It’s up his sleeve. It’s up his sleeve. Watch him. Watch him.” “Watch his other hand. Watch his other hand.” “It’s inside his coat. It’s inside his coat.”

This goes on for quite some time. A growing antipathy grows between the magician and the parrot. The magician can’t do anything because it is the captain’s pet.

One night a terrible hurricane occurs. The ship is tossed about. It eventually breaks up and sinks.

When morning comes the magician and the parrot are floating on opposite ends of the same piece of debris no more than five feet from each other. Nothing else is in sight; no boat, no wreckage, and no land.

They drift for days. Each is filled with hatred for the other. They only acknowledge the presence of each other with an occasional glare.

Finally the parrot can’t take it anymore. “Okay okay, magic boy, I give up. Where’d ya hide the boat?”
