Berserko the Clown

by

Berserko was at the local recreational center checking for any upcoming birthday parties when he spotted Bizarro the Magician. He hated Bizarro and tried to avoid him, but couldn't.

"Berserko! Lemme show you a magic trick. What's your age?"

"38," Berserko said.

"Okay. Now add five to that. Then add 10. Then subtract 15 and you've got your age. Spooky, huh?"

"All you did was add 15 to my age and then subtract it. That isn't magic. It's mathematics."

"It's magic."

"Okay, Bizarro....Lemme show you a magic trick."

"Cool!"

"Lemme show you how fast I can disappear from this place!"

    Hehe, Berserko. He won’t see your heels for the dust, as Stoltz, Reisch and Graham wrote and the wonderful Josef Locke sang.

    I forgot to add this based on some kind of trick I heard about that involved a bunch of math and then it always coming back to your age and I realized all they were doing was subtracting the same amount they had added to start with, they just did it in such a confusing way that most people probably don't notice it.

    This WAS based on some kind of trick, that should've read.
