The No-Hands Cup Flipper: In 1997, Nguyen Van Tho abruptly stopped
performing in public.
Several years before, he had begun a personal exploration that included a series of virtual reality experiences
involving the Great Wall of China, the Vatican, a mechanical pig, and LSD. In real life, while participating in
a medical study of phantom limb syndrome, he visited a Christian apparitional site in Florida where he
encountered an actual mechanical pig swimming along the inland waterway, obviously having escaped its Mafioso
captor. He caught and crated the pig and brought it to the international spiritual community of Findhorn,
Scotland, where he buried it below a guest trailer in early 1994, perhaps hoping to bury with it his traumatic
memories of losing his hands to a booby-trapped can of Vietcong Spam. But for three and a half years, he could
not get the pig, or the pork product, out of his mind, so he decided to return to Scotland. Meanwhile Eugene
Zanger, the original World-Famous Cup Flipper, continued to amuse customers by flipping hundreds of cups per day
at the California roadside attraction Casa de Fruta.
