Magicians

You know what the problem with magicians is?
Magicians like to make things disappear.
They start with playing cards and ping pong balls, and they stuff torn-up newspaper into the other hand until it vanishes.
Rabbits disappear, assistants disappear, elephants disappear.
One magician made a whole airplane disappear.
Another made the Statue of Liberty disappear.
Prime time television was nothing but magicians making things disappear.
I got sick of all these stupid magicians making things disappear.
That’s about when I stopped watching them, and got cable.
Movies, sports, and stand-up comedy made the magicians disappear.
I stood up and applauded.
