EP Flash: Chump Change

By Pete Butler.
Read by Jake Squid.

It’s going to be the Three of Clubs.

I know this, as certainly as I know my own name. I’m less sure about some things than my fans would think. But sometimes, the swirling laws governing what may happen coalesce into what will happen with astonishing clarity. The sun will rise tomorrow, the Pirates will beat the Mets tonight, and as soon as I announce my “guess,” the Three of Clubs will appear on the monitor in front of me.

“Jack of Spades,” I proclaim, full of conviction.

The monitor flickers, and is suddenly filled by a pixilated version of the Three of Clubs.


Rated PG. for…welll, you already know why, don’t you?

Fun little short.  But I like James Randi.

Predictable, yet still very fun! 

Nice PG notice, Russell!

I kind of saw where this was going. Enjoyable enough regardless. However, the reading was too fast and too blah.

I believe this is an illustration of what some believers in psychic woo give for why Randi never finds real psychics, they read his mind and so decide not to play along. A decent enough story but nothing special.

I don't write those myself.  Everything here is copied from the blog post.

Fun little story.  I was very tired when I was reading this, so my mind didn't go dancing ahead of the story.  I gave a bit of a chuckle when he mentioned his savings.

Fun idea, nicely executed.  Not much else to say, methinks.  :)
