Alright everybody. Now I’m going to tell you
how to do just a really cool fool art. This one requires a little bit of devious deception.
Almost like a magic trick but it’s kind of cool. What you do is you tell your co-worker
that you just got these new index cards that are really, really strong and they can actually
break through a pencil. You have them stand in front of you and hold a pencil on the ends
just like this and have them hold it toward the ends. You take the index card, you hold
it in your hand like this, then you come up and you come down and the index card chops
the pencil right in half. What happens is that as your co-worker is holding the pencil.
You want to have them hold it close to the ends and hold it nice and tight. You’re going
to hold the index card in your hand like this, but as you come down you’re going to extend
your 2 fingers. If you want to practice this without potentially hurting your fingers,
practice on bread sticks. If they break sticks or pretzel sticks in your workplace, that’s
a great thing to use and find yourself some cheap pencils. The other thing is you want
to come up nice and high and as you come down behind the index card, you’re just going to
take your fingers and chop right through the pencil just like that. It happens right behind
the index card. Just hold that out one more time. It happens right behind the index card
so you can break right through it just like that and then you pull your fingers back and
you can hand them the card and it’s even got a little mark on it from where it went through
and that looks pretty cool. That’s how you break a pencil using an index card. You can
also do it with a dollar bill if you fold it in half lengthwise and only use one finger.
That’s a couple variations on a very fun stunt.
