News Flash: Ducks eat bugs. They don’t only dabble in pond weed ‘n stuffs. We have proof!
“I was taking a walk through the park tonight when I realized that the pond was full of the smallest, cutest, fuzziest baby ducklings. They were all jumping into the air to eat bugs (hence the picture of the little yellow-bellied guy in the air). Cutest thing I have EVER seen. Photos taken by me, Kelsey.”

There are two approaches to the classic “disappearing ice cube” illusion:
Method One: Place ice cube on conjuring table. Distract audience with engaging patter for a few moments, long enough for concealed bird to pull ice cube into sleeve.
Method Two: Place ice cube on conjuring table. Distract audience with engaging patter for at least three hours, then reveal that ice cube has been replaced by water.

Bring forth the
glass 3D-model slipper! This is Buttercup, who lives at the Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary. Buttercup was born with only one proper foot. But the fairy godpeeps at NovaCopy came to the rescue with la très nouveau slippere’ made just for Buttercup! And the rest, they say, will be fairy tale prosthetic prosh-thetic history.
