The Great Jimmy Dixon----
 starts with a little top hat at his feet!

Stating "I'm going to produce a live rabbit out of my Hat!"
(Building a tip!)


Well- How many of you know how I did it? Hold your hands up.
How many of you don't know how I did it? Hold your hands up.
How many of you don't care how I did it as long as you get some
of the FREE gifts? Hold your hands up. that's what I figured, I
have been to (The town you are in) before!

Have you ever watched programs like lets make a Deal, The
price is Right- Jokers wild? They pass out a lot of merchandise
on T.V. to advertise. so those of you in the back push down here.
They always use pretty girls like Vanna White- Barbara's
Beauties, and we are not any different, we have a beautiful young
Lady- and her name is G.G. Would you want to come up a little
closer? Please give G.G. a nice hand! Now G.G. is going to pass
out some nice gifts. G.G. would you please want to put some of
those knife's up?

 I always start with the little juice machine. If you want to get one
of these hold your hands up! They are FREE! Now it doesnít cost
you nothing. We have LOTS of surprises, gifts over here. Have
one. Over there have one. You to up front have two! One over
here- one of them over there. Who knows how to use them? Put
them in a lemon, an orange or grapefruit. It's the greatest thing
since the can opener. Don't try them in a watermelon unless you
are superman- You can't squeeze a watermelon. Here have
some telephone clip on pens. Any of you watch Monty Hall on
let's make a Deal? First person that can show me a driver's
license or a S.S. card I will give you the telephone clip on pen.
You got to be quick- Got to be first! The lady over there?

Now do you realize I just saved you 19.95- What are you going
to say to me? You are welcome- I will give these to somebody
who can show me a 1.00 bill. Got to be quick- I have to do this for
an Adult. I just saved you 19.00 bucks, what are you going to say
to me? I'll make you all say thank you! Now wait a minute- How
many of you never got one of these- right here before? Never got
one of these? Alright real quick I have a little mystery gift. I want to
find out what kind of people are watching the show? So to do that
I am going to sell this for a nickel. Now you don't know what it is-
but whoever takes this home is going to say thank you! And the
rest of you are going to be jealous. How many of you that don't
care what's in the box would give me a nickel for it? 
See everybody here- that man's trying to tribe me. Look at that! Now
wait a minute, wait a minute. Hold your dollar, hold your nickel.
Actually I want one adult to try to prove a point. But it is going to
take a little nerve. Now understand I won't charge anymore than
a nickel. But I want an adult to reach into your pocket, your purse
or wherever you keep your money- I want you to take out a 5.00
bill and for no other reason then I ask you- I want you to pass it
up to me. I got a reason for doing this- oh anyone else- did you
see that-He's still a sport! Did you see that for a nickel I had a lot
of sports- but for 5.00 bucks now-there the real sport! What I
wanted to show you that is a test market-This is the tenth year
we have been coming here- we don't pick you-you pick
yourselves. In other words if you wouldn't have passed it up, it
would have been yours! Young man right there is going to take
home this beautiful match set of 14 caret gold magic writer pen
and pencil set. I'm going to gift wrap those foe you. Green is my
favorite color- How about yours? I will pay the nickel- What I
wanted is two words what are the two words? I will make you all
say thank you!

Let me do these real quick- now I don't have enough of these
for everybody-so I am just going to do it for the people over 18.
Only one to a couple. Hand me that would you? So just one to a
couple. If you never got one of these before. Hold your hands up
in the air! I will put one down for you- alright your number one-
you are number 2, you number 3, number 4, you are number 5,
number 6, number 7, number 8, number 9-number 10,11,12,13
over there! Your number 14,15,16.17,18 over there 19 there 20
over there- any body else now? Has everybody got a number?
You sir are 21! Don't forget that you are 21! In a minute when I
ask you your number you are 21- Is that it? Alright- do you 21
people all remember your numbers? Let me hear them? Do you
remember your numbers, yes or no- because from here on out
what FREE things I pass out- if I pass out more of the magic pen
sets- or buy other gifts- It's just for you 21 people! How many of
you think that is only fair? About 21 people! It usually works out
that way! Now I want everyone to back up just a little bit from the
stage. Alright I want just the people with the numbers and the
people you have with to come down in front- Real close!!

 Right down in front- the rest of you don't have to leave- I will try
to make this- but it's only going to be possible for the 21 people
with numbers, so everyone move in real close. Now I was just
kidding when I said I only have one of those magic writers.
Actually we have enough of those pens for everybody who has
numbers- But real quick I didn't tell you what was in this box- I did
that on purpose- But if it turns out to something nice would you
say thank you?

 What it is an boy? How many of you can use a boy? Go get all
the boxes you can find- we have the right group here. Now wait-
wait a minute- How many of you that do a little traveling can use
a nice overnight bag? Alright I have some overnight bags. These
are the overnight bags- I didn't say same night I said overnight.
Now these are for the test market. So if you get one open it right
up, and the tickets for the door prize- So don't lose those! Now
how many of you are dying to know what's inside this box?
Besides # 21 there? Now real quick- to show what my company
does-we test market merchandise for T.V. commercials and this
year we are test marketing these pens because they are special-
they are very neat! And to do that I said we were going to liquidate
some things you have already seen on T.V. real cheap- so we
found the most popular items the manufacturers made us a
special deal to have us test market those pens. How many of
you have seen the knife- that cuts nails, tin cans, bolts and cuts
tomatoes so thin you can see right through them? Surgical
stainless steal! How many of you have seen them on T.V? How
much do they sell for? 19.95 sure! Who can use one for a nickel?
Who can use one for a quarter? Who can use one for one dollar?
Who can use one for 200.00 dollars? Hold your hands up. Forget
200 dollars- forget 19.95 they sell on T.V. -forget 15- forget even
10 dollars-my job is to test market these folks- If they didn't care
who took home the 19.95 knifes-the magic writer pens-the
stick-on pens-they wouldn't pay me to stand up and do
commercials. They would just put them in a pile. I am sure
somebody would take them home? I am going to separate my
crowd! One more time-the people who are going to take home
not only the knife-bonus merchandise as well-from the people
who just want something for nothing-and we have our way of
finding out? A moment ago I said for 19.95 forget-even 10 dollars
I am going to ask you to do something for me? I am going to ask
you to reach into your pockets, your purse, the tip of your nose.

Where ever you keep your money-would you take out a 5.00 bill
and hold it in your hand-if you have 5 ones hold that- If you got a
10 or 20 hold that in your hands- now I am going to come around
and ask you what your number is and thatís for the survey. I am
going to collect the cash of 5.00 dollars from you and going to
hand you one of these bags- now the people who are holding
these bags, in just a moment if you don't say thank you- I am
going to call you the strangest person at the fair! Now we don't
pick you-you pick yourself! So if you have use of the knife and the
other things hold that cash of 5.00 dollars up-I am going to find
out now in my own way? What's your # back there young man?
What's your number? We will start here number 8 is that your #
sir? Number 9 you in the back push your way down here-what's
your # sir? Now if you need change, we will make change.
Number 1 is in- now that's a ten I will get you some change.
what's your #? # 3 is in! Your number please?

12?- Is that it now? OK anybody else now? OK let me show you
how this works? We gave out 21 numbers a moment ago. And
this represents 21 people. Alright watch- let's check-alright there
is 21 people represented here- I have a feeling its going to be a
little short? 1,2,3,4,5 that one person 2,3,4,5 there is 6,7,8 there
is 9 there 10, there 11, there 12, 13,-12345 thatís 14 and 12345
and that makes a total of 15 people.

Would you 15 people who not only have the 19.95 knife
coming-and some things I haven't told you about hold your
hands in a moment of silence for those people who just passed
away at the thought of parting with 5.00 dollars. They didn't pass
away they changed there minds. I am going to make them wish
they changed their socks- But first things first- young man keep
your eyes on all the money- everyone else keep your eyes on
him- now so no one can say they didn't have an equal chance
when you see what I do- I'm holding one of these bags and have
use for one of these knifes- and the only other place I know you
can get those are on T.V. They sell millions of them every year.
20 bucks because it is a good knife. They have been on year
after year so you know it's good- just pass up 5 and I will still
count you in - real quick does someone anybody? NO? I don't
count but I do offer. OK the fortree is simple- nobody else can
have one now not for a nickel, not a dime, not 5 dollars not 100
dollars not say for any price. We're talking just 5 people- Now
real quick before I do what I am about to do- just as I give some
people a chance to get in- you people that are in- I always give
you people a chance to change your mind- and if you do I won't
be mad at you-because I don't want you to be mad at me. Now
this far- for the cash of 5.00 what we bartered for is the knife, the
box, the quarter see and a bonus I haven't shown you. Am I not
right? If I do more then that what is the two words you are going
to say to me? In just a minute you are going say thank you- and
now on that basis If there are anyone that want to change there
mind- or if there is any body trying to get something for nothing-
that's alright- hold your bag up- I will cancel your number- collect
your bag and of course hand you back your 5 dollars. You might
need it later on for gas, rent, groceries for the kids or something
else? I won't get personal! You all have use for the knife? You
want to change your hand? No of course not. In other words you
are all satisfied? That is what I was asking- So at this point who
does the 15 knifes belong to? You people. You can use them in
your kitchen- give them as a gift. They are yours! The knifes are
yours! Who does the money belong too? Why you? I am doing
the work here! Now ladies and gentleman it doesn't belong to
me either. It belongs to my company. But just as you can do
anything with your knife- I can do anything I want with the money!
I can take all this money walk over to this young man and rip it
up. But don't get nervous I am not going to do that. I can fold it in
half give it to these kids to go to the carnival! But they won't let me
do that either. How many of you folks send for rebates? How
long does it take? 6 or 8 weeks? You might call this a instant
cash rebate. I am going to try to spend it back with you 15
people. How many of you think that's a good idea? Sure! 15
people! I have to change this into 5's, so when I am doing that-
everyone that has a knife coming if you will hold your bag up?
G.G. is going to go ahead and pass the knifes out now! Alright
those knifes have a life time guarantee. If it ever gets dull don't try
to sharpen it! The company will replace it absolutely FREE! And if
you ever damage it- even if it is your fault, if you drop it in the
dishwater, throw it in the street, run a bull dozer over it- They still
will replace it free. That a pretty good guarantee! Alright now-
They are very sharp- When you take them out be very careful.

OK does everyone have those knifes now? Alright I got to do a
couple of real quick commercials. I showed you these a moment
ago? I mentioned we were test marketing! they will be available
around Christmas on T.V. and they are the magic writer pen and
pencil set. How many of you can use a set of these? How many
of you can use a telephone stick on pen? How many of you
watch the Godfather on T.V.? Remember he says I am going to
make you a deal you can't refuse? To show our appreciation to
you people my company has a special 20.00 dollar package.
The only people eligible are you people with those knifes and
nobody else. I am authorized to include a second telephone pen.
