Parson: Y'know...

You're actually the second person who's asked me that this morning.

Jeftichew: Aha!

And what did you tell them?

Parson: Yah, um, I don't have time to discuss it, Jojo.

Jeftichew: Good!

Because there is nothing to discuss!

The answer is known.

Jeftichew: You can fight Fate.

And win!

Parson: Carnymancy.

It's... the magic of rigging the game.

Jeftichew: Here! That's a crude slander on our noble discipline, sir.

Oh, truly you do wound me.

Jeftichew: But yes.

And I've got some that's made especially for you.

A spell to grant what is surely your fondest wish, as well as spare you from cruellest Fate!

Jeftichew: Now, I can cast it on you...

But you're blocking.

You'll have to drop the Staff of Suckage.

Parson: This is the card trick?

Jeftichew: This is the trick.

To make a wild card disappear.

Parson: Okay unless you're talking about invisibility, then no.

Jeftichew: My friend!


Parson: What do you mean by 'disappear'?

Jeftichew: I mean get out of sight, man.

Out of this world!

Jeftichew: I mean get back.

Parson: "Get . . . back", Jojo?

Jeftichew: Yes, indeed.

Get back to where you once belonged.[1]
