The same duo who gave us Mad MYTHS here offers another fanciful and entertaining tale. Vernon Bright is, well, a bright, young English geek, who has devised a way to make nonmetallic objects magnetic and who aspires to make living beings magnetic. In attempting this on one of his pets, he accidentally makes himself magnetic. The subsequent efforts of Vernon and his friend, John Watts, to remedy the situation are hilarious. Nigel Lambert, a one-man children's comedy theater, doesn't skip a beat in his performance. Narrative and dialogue are superbly rendered. His portrayal of a Texas accent is especially delightful.
