How To Be Mind Reader

One day an amateur magician was visiting a fair. Over to one side was a small tent, with a sign that said 'For 10 pounds I'll teach you to be a mind reader! - Apply within.'

So the magician thought that he'd give it a go, and if all went well he could impress his fellow magicians at the next club meeting.

So he went inside, and sat behind a small table was an old man, who looked up as he entered and said, 'Ah, you must be here for the mind reading lessons.'

'Er, yes,' said the magician.

'Well, follow me, and I'll give you your first lesson.'

Then the old man goes out the back of the tent and comes back with a hose. 'Here, hold this hose,' he said.

'Why?' said the magician, looking quite puzzled.

'It's part of the lesson,' replies the old man, 'Now, look in the end and tell me what you see.'

So the magician looks into the end of the hose, and only sees darkness. 'I don't see anything,' he tells the old man.

Just then the old man turns on a tap, and the hose shoots water into the magicians's face.

'I just knew you'd do something like that.' the magician shouted.

'There. You are now a mind reader!' the old man replies, 'That'll be 10 pounds please!'
