Geller’s crooked craftsmanship shows up again

If seeing is believing, it looks like Uri Geller is up to his old tricks. The mind-bending spoon-bender, who divided the nation in the Seventies with his crooked craftsmanship, showed up again up on Beyond Belief, Carlton Television’s new programme probing the paranormal.

Once more the Israeli wunderkind called on the nation to get out their cutlery in the name of the zeitgeist. One of our reporters duly did, keen to test the man’s psychic forces.

He stroked and stroked his spoon in accordance Geller’s instructions but nothing happened – until the following day when he went to a locksmiths to get a new key for his flatmate and found his own key was bent, yes bent – not completely, but curled at the bottom.

Our reporter, who swears this story is true, did not get his key out during the TV experiment – but left it in his coat pocket all night.

Weird, huh?

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Absolutely amazing”

“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”

“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
