HAVING A BALL
The set of juggling balls used by legendary comedian, actor – and juggler – W.C. Fields offer more than a simple party trick. Fields, who often joked about booze in his act (he once advised, “Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite and furthermore always carry a small snake”), died in 1946, but his juggling balls were kept as a Warehouse 13 artifact. They induce blackout drunkenness to whoever holds them (with no hangover the next day), as evidence in the third-season episode “Love Sick,” in which Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) begin to pick up the balls after they are knocked off of a shelf – and wake up the next day naked in Artie’s (Saul Rubinek) bed (with Artie’s toothbrush) and Myka’s hair turned blonde (Marilyn Monroe’s hairbrush had something to do with this) – all with no memory of what happened the night before. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering this historic artifact to Warehouse 13 fans – click here for more information about these juggling balls – and place your bid today. Just be ready for some wild, unexplainable nights in your future!
