For those of you that don't know what telekinesis is, it is when a person has physical influence over a physical thing, entirely through the use of their mind. Most people are skeptical of someone claiming to have this ability, regarding it as a hoax or some type of gadget trickery that involves collusion with other people in order to get the desired effect. But there are also others out there who believe it to be true and some that want it to be true.
Our story is about a man from the Middle East whose world wide reputation for bending and moving physical objects proceeded him. He was known as the Great Spoon Bender. Time and time again he was able to bend metal spoons and rods with nothing more than the power of his mind. But there was one man in America that had called out the Great Spoon Bender and said that he was a hoax. This man in America offered the spoon bender a million dollars if he would come on television to bend a spoon and other objects. The Great Spoon Bender agreed to the challenge and flew out to New York City to appear on a tonight show.
The Great Spoon Bender arrived that night to a sold out show. He was greeted by the audience and the host of the show, the man who had challenged him. This man was Sammy Sharon. The crowd burst into excitement as the Great Spoon Bender sat down with the host Sammy Sharon. The two made small talk but after a couple minutes the skeptic, Sammy Sharon, had a table brought out which was covered by a cloth. The Great Spoon Bender had become nervous because he did not expect Sammy to provide the props. The Great Spoon Bender always had used his own but tonight it would be different.
The cloth on the table was pulled back and there were several spoons, knives, forks and a couple of metal rods. Sammy then mocked the Great Spoon Bender, challenging him to bend props that weren't his own. The Great Spoon Bender started to sweat and the Sammy started to laugh and asked him if he was getting nervous. Minutes later the Great Spoon Bender went to work and held up a spoon, the crowd and Sammy watched with great anticipation. The Great Spoon Bender fixed his eyes on the spoon for five minutes and nothing happened. He then tried the knife and nothing. The fork. Nothing.
Sammy then burst out laughing which upset the Great Spoon Bender. He started to make excuses saying that he couldn't concentrate, and was being forced against his will to do it. He then accused Sammy of putting a hex on him. The whole time Sammy ridiculed him, calling him a sham and a hoax.
The Great Spoon Bender then screamed out, "I am not a hoax," and then stomped off the stage like a pouting child. Sammy laughed, wiped the tears away from his eyes and said, "We"ll be right back after these messages."
That night Sammy sat at his kitchen table eating cereal watching a television interview with the Great Spoon Bender after his failed performance. He made a threat against Sammy, saying he would get even with him for ruining his career. He then looked at the television and said, "Sammy, this evil eye hex is for you."
Sammy started to laugh and as he raised his spoon to scoop cereal into his mouth he noticed his spoon starting to bend in half. Seconds later the spoon broke off and went plop into the milk...
