I am not sure if I believe in hypnotists. I kind of lean towards yes because I was at a show one time when a man was instructed to dance with a mop as if he was in love with the mop; and lets just say, I have never seen a more romantical dance in my LIFE! 

If hypnosis is real. . . then these people are lucky they're not still walking around thinking they're chickens.

According to Dorset Echo, on Friday night in Portland, England, a hypnotist named David Days was performing a show at a theater.  And near the end, as he brought three volunteers out of their trances, he tripped over an audience member's leg. 

David fell down and knocked himself out . . . leaving the three volunteers stuck in a hypnotized state.

Eventually, paramedics were able to resuscitate him and he was able to pull himself together and break the people out of their trances.  His manager says the entire thing, quote, "damaged his ego."
