A 'wizard staff' - now there is a sensible drinking game! I am at Level 3. Of course, I play it with kegs, not cans.

That pic of the photo shoot reminds me Bob Arihood. Neither more nor less. He is missed.

That's not a wizard's wand. We used to make those things when I was a kid.
You cut the tops and bottoms off of seven beer/soda cans (except for one
that you leave the bottom on), tape them together into a tube, with the
bottom-left-on can at one end, poke a hole in the center of the left-on
bottom, squirt lighter fluid into the hole, swing the tube around a few
times to distribute and lighter fluid and convert a good part of it to
gas, then hold a match to the hole you squirted the lighter fluid into,
which causes a loudish explosion out the open end, similar to a shotgun.

Great fun!
