BBC NEWS | Magazine | Playing mind games

Reminds me of fellow swing dancing friend Karl‘s stories of working the street (magic) in Scandinavia, and sharing a pitch with a 3 card Monty team. Karl was doing great trade legitimatly entertaining people for hat.
Including the lookouts and stooges there were 8 of them in the 3 card monty team, and they were doing great trade too, slightly less legally. You’ve got to be pretty daft to loose money to 3 card monty. “A fool and his money are easily parted.” and some might say that “a fool and his money were lucky to come together in the first place.”
