Carson the Debunker

I found this from Majikthise which reminded me of my second favorite Johnny Carson story next to "pet my pussy." Uri Geller claimed to bend spoons with the power of his mind. The Amazing Randi, who is a slight of hand artist and debunker of psychics worked with Carson to debunk Geller when he went on the show. The trick to "bending spoons" is to weaken the spoons in advance. Carson provided Geller with new spoons and presto no more psychic ability. Follow Hajikthis's link to see video.
