The Hypnotist


It was entertainment night at the Hollybush Pub.

John the hypnotist exclaimed, "I'm here to put you all into a trance. I intend to hypnotise each and every member of the audience".

The excitement was almost electric as John withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his coat. The polished metal gleamed in the light.

John the hypnotist said "I want you each 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 mesmerised as the watch swayed back and forth, light shimmering off its polished surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch, until suddenly it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the floor, shattering into a hundred pieces.

"SHIT!" exclaimed John.

It took Paul, the landlord, 4 days to clean up the pub!

GG: Well, I tried to hypnotise John into saying "What are you having?" every time he saw my empty glass, but it didn't work.

Jayne: That's the nicest thing you have ever said to me.

Pat: Well, you and MTL will have to come and see us at the Holly Bush one Sunday. The meals here are really good.

John, truly? You're not teasing? It really works?

Keith, thing is, you were asking *him* what he was having, of course it wouldn't work.
