A blindfold, watermelon and Samurai… what could possibly go wrong?

Let’s just imagine it was you.

There you are, sat watching a magic show. Your thoughts drifting from the performance to your own private wanderings. Then you notice everyone is looking at you. Uh-oh, you’ve been chosen to participate in the next piece of magic.

That’s OK, you think. He’s a good magician. Kind, friendly, competent.

So, up you go, into the spotlight.

Before you know it, you’re on your back, hands under you (for your own safety you’ve been advised), a watermelon on your stomach. The magician is now blindfolded and brandishing a Samurai Sword. He spins himself around, raises the sword and before you can think, ‘have I got a donor card?’, he slices the sword down… your eyes clamp shut.

Applause leads you to gently open your eyes. Are you dead? Is this heaven?

On the floor are two halves of watermelon. The magician is smiling. You’re fine. Intact.

What the hell just happened?
