Laughter is Healthy!
Did you know that laughter is very healthy for young children?
Fellow kids magician, The Great Zucchini, from Washington D.C. was recently part of a great article on the subject!

In the meantime, here’s a joke to warm up your funny-bone!
There was once a pirate magician on his ship who performed sleight of hand tricks for his crew. He was actually quite a good magician, but his routines were regularly ruined by his pet parrot who would fly around squawking and giving away his secrets like:
“IT’S UP HIS SLEEVE, IT’S UP HIS SLEEVE!” or
“IT’S IN HIS POCKET, IT’S IN HIS POCKET!” or
“IT’S IN HIS MOUTH, IT’S IN HIS MOUTH!”
The magician was getting pretty sick of this and threatened to cage the parrot if it ruined his act one more time. That evening right at the climax of his act, just as he was about to disappear in a puff of smoke, the ship hit an giant rock and sank in seconds.
Amazingly, the magician and the parrot were the only two survivors. The magician was lying on a piece of driftwood in a daze. As he opened his eyes he could see the parrot staring at him with its beady little eyes.
The parrot sat there for hours just staring at him and eventually said, “OK, I give up! What did you do with the ship?”
