  • When the magician-turned-superhero
    Encounters "oblivious communicators" - our hero:
    Snatches their cell phone in mid-sentence,
    Grabs their wasteful packaging water bottle and
    Inserts the cell phone into the unopened water bottle.
    Those on the other end of the "line"
    Suddenly hear only gurgling sounds - then silence.

    (From an old song once recorded by Pete Seeger)
    _ _ _ _ _ Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
    _ _ _ _ _ Smote the water with a two-by-four
    _ _ _ _ _ Pharaoh's army got drownded
    _ _ _ _ _ Oh Mary don't you weep....
    ...
    _ _ _ _ _ If I could I surely would
    _ _ _ _ _ Stand on the rock where Moses stood
    _ _ _ _ _ Pharaoh's army got drownded
    _ _ _ _ _ Oh Mary don't you weep....
    ...
    _ _ _ _ _ One of these nights 'bout twelve o'clock
    _ _ _ _ _ This ol' world is gonna rock
    _ _ _ _ _ Pharaoh's army got drownded
    _ _ _ _ _ Oh Mary don't you weep....
    ...
