ust like when Gilligan got hypnotized by watching the professor hypnotize Mary Ann after she hit her head and thought she was Ginger, so was the fate of Jean Poquette-Seidl.
Eileen "Trixie" Sobieck was invited to a hypnosis party by one of her work friends at the Radisson in
A katandmick photo
Green Bay. She (her friend) rented a room hired a hypnotist and invited everyone she knew and told them to bring whomever they wished. Sobieck of course invited her sister Jean Poquette-Seidl.
Seidl eager to kick her obsession with skittles volunteered to participate
and the hypnotist invited her up on stage with about 14 other people who also volunteered. Upon taking the stage the hypnotist gave everyone a little test to see if they indeed could be hypnotized, and of course our little Jeanie pass the test with flying colors.
The hypnotist in charge took everyone at one time and put them in the trance. He had given all of them suggestions as to what they were doing and how to act, one man was told he was an Elvis performer and at the snap of a finger he was waving his arms and singing convincingly like the king of rock and roll brought back from the dead. Poquette-Seidl was told that she owned a horse and she was here to see the race, when asked what the name of her horse was she calmly replied "Alice". Then she had trouble seeing the horse at the far side of the track so the hypnotist told her that her shoes could be used as binoculars so in an instant she had her shoes up to her eyes to see better and apparently it worked. But when the hypnotist told her that her horse may not have won and it was a photo finish she got angry and insisted that through her binoculars she saw Alice win the race. He also told her that a bird was sitting her arm and it looked to Trixie like she was petting it but when she was told the bird had bit her she uttered and explitive and cast the nonexistant bird to the floor.
It was unclear if the she was ever given the suggestion that she should never eat skittles again but upon returning to the table she told her sister Trixie that they tried but were unable to hypnotize her. Poquette-Seidl went home wondering why she even consented to attend the show.

BLUE JELL-O'S WIN TB-XIV 49 TO 35
After a three year dry spell the Hobart Blue Jell-O's have won the annual match up between them and the Oneida Red Gobblers.
This years MVP was Zak Lade, named for his superior running game throughout the whole day. Lade was helped along by Red Gobblers quarterback Alex Pickett who threw and estimated 18 interceptions. Jean Poquette-Seidl who demanded to switch cheerleading sides (blue to red) with Trixie Sobieck because of the dry spell was inconsolable after the loss.
