"Psychic" Uri Geller not so long ago lost a court case against another magician who revealed the magic tricks that Geller used to fool his gullible followers.

    According to this site, the English name is Kadabra, but that the Japanese name translates phonetically to "Ungeller." Note too that "Un" even looks like "Uri" at first glance. For photos of the card and a little more info....
