I bet he's performed the old "disappearing sausage" trick on all kinds of ladies!

I love magic. Not the David Blaine kind where you encase yourself in ice for a week, or live on a four-by-four platform 500 feet above the air, that's not magic. I'm talking about the David Copperfield walking through the Great Wall of China kind of magic. Even the slight-of-hand stuff boggles my mind. Like most people, it kicks in that natural human inquisitiveness. I want to know how it's done, but as we know, a magician never reveals his secrets, leaving us to scratch our heads and try to figure it out on our own.

Earlier this year, I had the chance not only to see a magic trick up close, but actually be a part of it when local magician Matt Grisham stopped by the offices for a little performance before our first annual Kid's Day Fun Fest. I've watched that video over and over again, and still don't have the slightest clue as to how he pulled it off. That's the beauty of great magic.

I'm also still not sure how this magician from Taiwan, who calls himself Yif pulls off the tricks he performs in the video below. Especially what he does with two balls of dough at a sandwich shop.

You could make the argument that since this is a video, a few crafty camera tricks or really good editing software should get the credit for the payoff of each trick. Or, you could just allow yourself to suspend rational belief and enjoy the show.
