While walking my dog this morning, he stopped to take a poop on the edge of someone’s lawn.  I reached into my left pants pocket for a plastic poop bag, and to my dismay, realized I had none!  Then I noticed that the occupant of the next-door property was watching me.  

So I reached into my right pants pocket, pretended to grasp something, and extracted my hand as if holding a poop bag.  With one hand providing cover for the other, I reached  down and went through the motions of opening the bag and picking up the poop.  

Then I pretended to tie the (invisible) bag and put it into my pocket (something I never actually do), and went on my merry way.

I’m pretty sure my magical acting ability convinced the neighbor that I had done what I was pretending to do, and congratulated myself on my expert sleight hand.  Of course, I went back later with a plastic bag to pick up the poop.

Good one...

A good smile on a crappy morning 😉

Nice organic misdirection!

Ha! I've done the same thing myself, only I attributed the successful ruse to my acting abilities rather than my sleight of hand! Like you, I promptly went back and recovered the evidence.

I'm so guilty of doing the same.  Finally I got one of those things that fit on the end of the leash that holds poop bags.  Of course every now and again I open that up and it is empty.  And I have two very large dogs.  Thankfully I usually walk them through the woods on my own property.    But there are those moments.

Carry a plastic piece of fake poop to put along side the real stuff. Now use some strong IT to levitate it upward and into the bag you're holding. You could use the Steve Fearson floating cig hookup.

I've done a shuttle pass with my dog's treat before.  It was funny watching him "follow" where he thought the treat was only to discover it was in the other hand.

I'll definitely try the Doodoo Pass into the invisible change bag sometime.

If you were into Bizzarre magic, you could have mimed eating it.

Kind of brings to mind this scene from Caddy Shack:

Forgive me, Tom, but within the context of this thread I briefly thought that "dog's treat" referred to poo, and was quite concerned.

As I think of it, though, I recall that I used to practice French drops with Milk-Bones back in the day, for a large dog that ended up living to age 16. So perhaps there's something to be said for the anti-aging properties of wonder!

This whole thread smells.

Many years ago I remember reading about a magician who hated dealing tricks.  He called them hemorrhoid card tricks, because they are made up of piles.  Sorry, it just had to come out.

Of course there's really no way to know for sure how deceptive your actions were. The person watching you may have been saying to their spouse, "You won't believe this, this guy is pretending to pick up poop and put it in an imaginary bag, must think the imaginary bag makes it invisible!" 😉

I don't think so, Paul.  The neighbor gave me a friendly smile and a wave as I passed her house.  If she had suspected deception, she would have said something!
