Everywhere I look now the kids are praising Lennart Green, that Swedish bozo. Lennart Green: they say he re-invented card magic. Ha! THAT GUY IS JUST SLOPPY! Look at his handling, the man's nothing but a bungling amateur. His so-called 'Lazer Deal' is really one of my sleights, published in Armageddon, (I forget when exactly), and it was called Barry Solayme's 'Phazer Deal'. A lot of people don't realize it, but I gave Gene Roddenberry the idea for Star Trek, only my idea was called 'Star Wars'. Some other guy ripped that off too, but I won't get into it right now.
Anyway, that herring-guzzler stole my 'Phazer Deal', my 'Wind-turbine Crescent Move' and many others besides. He followed me around Sweden back in the 40's, then stowed away on the plane back to New York. Then the guy stalked me for a decade while I got my medical degree (a lot of people don't realize I invented open heart surgery). Meanwhile, what did Green do? Just your basic rip-off no-talent card man. He never even took the time to clear up his messy sleights. My mother had more skill with cards.
Where would he be if it wasn't for yours truly? NOWHERE! THAT'S WHERE!!!
