Magicians are fun. Magician rivalries are even more so. And with illusionist David Copperfield currently in bitter competition with endurance extraordinaire David Blane, he has announced plans to really step up his game. Not content with merely making the Statue of Liberty disappear - because anyone can do that. - Copperfield is planning on performing something far more biblical: a genuine immaculate conception.

For those who may be a little fuzzy as to how exactly that would work, Copperfield revealed that it is his full intention to make a female member of the audience pregnant onstage. without even touching her. It's a good job he mentioned that last part, or it might start to seem like he was planning an entirely different kind of show.
