David Penny, a world-famous magician who can make elephants and locomotives disappear, is being investigated by the FBI. A woman charged him with sexual assault while she was visiting him on his private island, about 50 miles northeast of Puerto Rico. David uses his island to unwind and relax.

Newspaper reporters have discovered that David likes to "unwind and relax" with young and pretty females from his audiences. Hiding backstage before his magic shows begin, David uses binoculars to check out the pretty women in his audiences. His assistants hand each pretty woman a card.

The top of each card says: "Congratulations! You have been selected to visit David Penny, World-Famous Magician, on his private island. This opportunity might lead to a permanent job working with David all over the world. If you are interested in flying to David's island on his private jet, please fill out the information below. After tonight's show, David will interview you in his dressing room." The bottom of the card asks for personal information: name, address, phone number, marital status, birth date, email address, height, weight, bra size, shoe size, and favorite alcoholic drink.

"Amazingly, most women who get the card fill out all the information, including their bra size," said one assistant. He said that David swore all his assistants to secrecy. "He told us we would be fired if we talked about this to anyone, but the FBI told us we might end up in jail if we didn't cooperate with them."

The assistant told a reporter that David had flown hundreds of women to his island over the past 10 years. None of them, he said, ever got a job with David.
