# Vegetable Trick!

by Thomas

(Birmingham, UK)

**THE EFFECT:** You ask the spectator 9-10 simple maths questions e.g. 2+2, 3x5, 9-7 etc. You then tell the spectator that you will write down the name of a vegetable on a piece of paper and when they say their vegetable, it will match and it does!

**THE SECRET:** The first thing you have to do is to write on one side of a piece of paper **"CELERY"** and on the other side **"CARROT"**. You then ask them the ten simple maths questions to get their brain warmed up. When you ask them to name a vegetable 80-90% of the time they will say Carrot and if they don't, the odds are that they will say Celery instead. **HOW COOL!**
