It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens Center.
Claude the hypnotist explained: "I'm here to put you into a trance, I intend to hypnotize each of you, you will really feel great".
The excitement was almost electric, as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his coat. I want each of you to keep your eyes on this antique watch. It's a very special watch. It's been in my family for six generations. He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, "Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch...."
The audience became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth.
A hundred pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch until, suddenly, the chain broke!!
It slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.
"Shit !" .... cried the hypnotist.....................
It took three days to clean up the Senior Citizens Center.
