ficlet: Prestidigitator

A bit of silliness written back in college (on the dorm hallway blackboard) and previously archived at gentle_edgar:

Once there was a stage magician named Chuckles. However, he was allergic to rabbits and pretty much anything else with fur. Or feathers. Or pollen. Or peanuts. His big act would have been with a pair of goldfish, but the hat kept leaking, the fish kept almost drowning, and eventually he gave up and switched to working with cacti.

That didn't go so well.
