Alan Rorrison
I Hate Rabbits by Alan Rorrison

This is Alan Rorrison's semi-sarcastic reply to the dreaded request: "Can you pull a rabbit out of a hat?" This question has plagued close-up magicians for decades. Suffer no more. This effect is the appropriate answer and will silence your pesky spectators.

The effect is lovely. Get a card selected and signed (a truly free selection - no force), draw a top hat on it and have rabbit appear in it. Then you use a rubber band as lasso to catch the rabbit.

Jon Racherbaumer
Hull-A-Palooza: 25 Devilish Strategies of Divination by Jon Racherbaumer

From the Preface:

Conjurers (as entertainers) are agents of simulated magical phenomenon. And most theorists would likely agree that such simulations should be direct and powerful. For example, the phenomenon is prophesying a mentally selected card, begins when the agent writes down or verbalizes a prediction beforehand. Next, a spectator names a card and, finally, the named card matches the predicted card. This magical result, as just described, is almost tantamount to telling a person what they are thinking as they are thinking it. This is an ideal outcome.
