It’s Official. It’s illegal to make money using magic.

I read an interesting article today about magician David Copperfield:

FBI agents have seized nearly $2 million in cash from a Las Vegas warehouse owned by illusionist David Copperfield, local media reports said on Thursday.  – [Yahoo/Reuters]

Interestingly, the article fails to mention exactly why they felt it would be a good idea to relieve Mr. Copperfield of his millions. Was it the fact that he saved it in a warehouse? Did he make it magically appear and didn’t pay taxes on it? Too much money for a magician?  He’s a freakin’ magician! Eh! Who knows.

Of course his lawyer says they are cooperating with investigators, but if you could walk through prison cell walls, release yourself from any handcuff, and make magically money appear,  why would you bother to resist?

    Good point. I don’t know why Copperfield didn’t make the money turn into hungry tigers or something. Then the tigers would attack or at least intimidate the FBI. Also – I swear I heard this morning on the news that David Copperfield has been accused of rape like over the weekend or something. What’s up with this guy?

    Honestly. He’s been accused of rape, dunno if it’s true or not, but if so, he needs to be flogged. I mean the man is loaded, and owns islands in the Bahamas. Islands! But still feels the need to force himself on a woman? Come on.

    If I were a magician, I’d have albino tiger bodyguards, black panthers for security, and black mambas guarding my money. Make people think twice about confiscating mah stash. He needs to have his magic license revoked or summat…
