Salaman The Magician

Salaman The Magician had been summoned to 10 Downing Street to meet the Prime Minister David Cameron.

“I hear you’re putting on a very successful magic show in London these days,” Cameron said to Salaman.

“I try my best, Mr. Prime Minister,” the white bearded magician smiled.

“I hear this past weekend, you had a frog leaping out from the bosom of a very beautiful woman in a low-cut evening dress and frightening Boris Johnson,” Cameron smiled.

“As much as I’d like to claim credit for what turned out to be a very upstaging event during the show,” the magician bowed his head, “alas, I was not the one responsible for that.”

“Well no matter,” Cameron got to the point, “the point is we’re having a very important guest- a foreign dignitary- staying at a castle in Scotland tonight- the castle is said to be haunted. We want you to use your magic skills to make a ghost appear to the foreign dignitary and get him to adopt the same position on a certain international issue as that held by Her Majesty’s Government here in the United Kingdom. Sorry to give you such short notice on this. But we just found out at the last moment that this gentleman is flying in for a secret conference on this issue at the said haunted castle in Scotland. We thought if anyone could put together a seemingly authentic haunting at the last moment, it would be a master magician such as yourself.”

“All right, I’ll do it,” Salaman answered when he was handed a piece of paper by Cameron stating the amount the British government was willing to pay him for staging the supposedly authentic haunting.

“Great,” Cameron shook his hand and the magician made his exit.

“Who’d have thought,” Salaman shook his head as he got into the taxi outside 10 Downing Street, “that magic shows and haunted castles would soon play an important role in international relations.”

Meanwhile over in Vietnam, Barack Obama was unaware that he was currently chatting with the actual real ghost of a Vietnamese Empress.

    uh…huh? Vietnamese Princess? Ghost? I’m not with the current affairs….can you explain briefly, my friend – sounds good but I would like to understand it too.

      Barack Obama is currently on a state visit to Vietnam.

      So when Salaman entered the taxi planning a phony haunting and a phony ghost for a Scottish castle, the thought suddenly hit me I should end the chapter by having Barack Obama meeting a real actual ghost in Vietnam.

      Of course to my knowledge, I don’t know if Obama has met a real actual ghost in Vietnam or anywhere else. LOL !

      It’s just the weird way my mind works.

      I guess that’s why some acquaintances suggested a number of years ago I go see a psychiatrist.

      But that’s just part of being a writer or an artist- sometimes we’re quite eccentric. πŸ˜€

        Revolving around a different centre is so…necessary, what?

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, every individual is unique and marches to the beat of their own drummer.

    Love this one, Christopher!
    I enjoy a good ghost-spirit-haunting story or movie!
    And the ending is perfect! Did the Vietnamese Empress ghost BOO! Obama!? πŸ˜‰ Ha! πŸ˜›
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

    I think this is going somewhere. Obama lifts the arms embargo on a communist country that left over 50,000 Americans dead and 2 million wounded. Great! I’m sure the ghosts of all those that died for nothing will look Oh Bummer up some day. Oh, and next he apologizes to the Japanese for saving 2 million lives by not invading Japan for the murder and rape of countless millions in the Pacific War. Brilliant! Next, he’ll lay a wreath at the incineration site of Hitler’s body and apologize to all former Nazi’s, living and deceased, for getting in the way of their conquest of Russia and all of Europe. The Black hand surely has crept into the boudoir of our Appeaser-in-Chief.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, that looks like what has occurred.

      • Hyperion said,

        We’re doomed.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Unless we call… Ghostbusters! πŸ˜€

      • Hyperion said,

        ROFLMAO! πŸ˜€ I think we should call right away and mention they might need reinforcements.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Ray, watch out for that ectoplasm! πŸ˜€

      • Hyperion said,

        Suuplorrrk-Bloof! Bloop, bloop, plop, Ewwwwwwww, you missed Ray and hit meeeeeee…..! (The splorked Blogoteer recedes from view to the tune, Slip Sliding Away.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Final words: He slimed me.

      • Hyperion said,

        Ha Haa haaahahahaaaa ! Yep, he did.
