Magicians are always saying that using a stooge is a big no no... My question is... What if a stooge dosent even know he is a stooge. Is he still a stooge? If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to notice... Does it still make sound? I know sone of you aren't capting what im trying to say and to explain this i have to reveal one of my tricks wich you guys can use if you want and let this become something of value to work on different effects. Some time ago, i bought merchandise from Chris Ramsays clothing line and he was giving out a random signed card with it. My idea hit me... What if i could meet him one day and perform the chicago opener for him.. but in the second part of the trick i would have him sign a card... And then completely destroy it.. burn it. And then boom the card he first chose wich is on the table is revealed to be his signed card... Amazing right? So with the idea i would probably never meet him.. i i started doing this with friends and family, have them sign a card in a routine , either with the omni deck or just out of nowhere, pretend i forgot how that trick goes and purposely mess up... To then weeks, months later perform the above mentioned effect. Only a few caught on but to the rest of the people around watching this happen it was still amazing. And i used a dual reality sort of where i told the person jist before revealing the card "in a moment im gonna turn this card over and im gonna ask you a single yes or no question...is this (turn card over) your signature?" So again i think i want to continue stuff like this.. but at that point the question remains is this magically ethical? Is an unknowing stooge still a stooge?
