Oldest Trick In The World - As The World Rolls By


"Eyi Je, Eyi O Je"

I first witnessed this trick many many moons ago as a teenager at the Bar Beach in Lagos (Nigeria). And used to marvel at the fact that people fell for it. The Yoruba's call it "Eyi Je, Eyi O Je", literally translated means "There's a winner on this one, but not on this one".

Although this guy act is purely entertainment. On a street corner in every country of the world from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, you will find some poor soul falling for this same trick or some variation of it by the minute.
