As in done on TV, no, they don't work that way. If you want to practice magik (as opposed to magic), I suggest you research paganism.
If you had to watch one of two older comedies, which one would you pick? Blazing Saddles or Animal House?
Right now I'd h ave to say Animal House cos I've seen it before....I'm saving Blazing Saddles (which I've never seen) for a future movie night!
