I’ve always been fascinated by magic tricks. I love slight of hand tricks. I love a trick that is amazing to watch, even when you know how it’s done. Penn and Teller were my heroes from a very young age and even now I do like to pass things from one hand to the other and make them disappear or have some fun with a floating spoon trick at the dinner table. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Penn & Teller’s show: Fool Us, cool stuff. Also I caught several episodes of America’s Got Talent this season and they had some fun magic acts, would have loved to seen Piff the Dragon win it.
Don’t worry, the snow petrels all got out mostly unharmed. It’s not the first time a snow petrel has shown up in the comic, one named Howie gave Wally some encouragement in Quest for the Beak. If you want to read that whole storyline it starts here.
