Crash The Ash-A Funny Bar Room Bet

May 31, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 175

Here is a funny bar room bet. Give it a try for kicks and cash.

Set this up by placing a brandy glass on the edge of the table top. Put a light paper coaster on top of it. Then borrow a cigarette to get the attention of a potential turkey and balance the cigarette in the middle of the coaster with the filter end on bottom. Finally, place a small coin on top of the cigarette.

"Here's the problem," you say to the one who loaned you the cigarette, or to anyone who wants to know what your doing. "How do I get the coin into the brandy glass without touching the coin, the cigarette, the glass? I'll give you ten bucks if you can do it."

"Can you touch the coaster?" someone asks.

"No. You can't touch the coin, the glass, the cigarette or the coaster. Any takers?"

You have presented the offer has a party trick but as soon as anyone steps up to play you turn it into a bet by saying, "If you can do it I'll give you a ten spot." He starts to smile at the thought of the ten. "But If you can't do it and I can, you owe me ten." Give them a moments to think it over. Ten if they can, ten if they can't and you can.

There is a trick to getting someone to take up a bet like this. You have to engage their minds on to solving the problem. "Anyone got any ideas how it can be done?", you would add. As they think about how to do it they also start thinking about winning your ten spot. They ignore the fact that they might lose theirs.

"And I'll give you two attempts to do it, because it is tricky. Ten bucks says you can't. Ten bucks says I can."

Here's the trick:

This is a great trick that is worth ten bucks just to see how it works. Most people will think grabbing the coaster by its edge and pulling it fast and hard will win the bet and forget they agreed you can't touch it, or the other parts. Slapping the edge of the table really hard won't do it either. The coin would wind up anywhere but in the glass.

Kneel down and blow a short sharp blast of air up at the underside of the coaster near the edge of the glass. The coaster and cigarette will fly away and the coin will drop straight down into the glass. Remember to place the glass at the edge of the table at the start.

This trick works well because most people who have been putting away their favorite drinks for a while don't have the wind to do this trick, if they know it. If they don't they usually are delighted to see it done for the first time. Make sure you practice it before you take it to the streets. And don't be surprised if the man who hands over his tenner also buys you a drink. He is already thinking of who he could pull the same trick himself.
