Audience vanishes but so did the magician

Where's Waldo? Professional magician and illusionist, Waldo the Wonderful, is missing and the FBI is even involved.

While conducting a performance at a Willow Creek theatre, Waldo was attempting to make his assistant, Kelli Kinetic disappear, but instead became the victim of his own commands.

Ms. Kinetic, according to a police report, stated that Waldo accidentally commanded 'Abracadabra' instead of the correct word for this illusion, 'Alakazam'. She claims this simple mistake caused the mishap. "He is the only one that can command his own reappearance, but who knows where he is?", she said.

To add insult to injury, the whole audience also vanished for a brief period of time but this was caused by a burrito gas release blamed on Waldo's earlier Mexican dinner.

Theatre owner, Randy Martin, is at a loss. He told our reporter, "We need him to reappear now." and added, "After this amazing performance, online ticket sales went nuts and we are sold out for the next two months...but at the moment, I don't have my showman."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
