The Orange, Lemon, Egg & Bird (OLEB) is a classic magic effect. A lot of famous magicians have performed this effect, including David Copperfield and Tommy Wonder. The following effect uses cards instead of the actual items, culminating in a surprise finish!
Effect: Four cards are on the table, each depicting one of the following: an orange, a lemon, an egg, and a bird. The magician makes the canary disappear first, then the egg and lemon. When he tries to vanish the tangerine, he fails. He then shucks the orange, and there is a lemon in it! When he cuts the lemon open, it has an egg inside! The egg is cracked open, and the canary is found inside! Finally, the actual items magically appear, and just as incredibly, they turn back into cards. Absolutely amazing!
