THE CIGARETTE TRICK

TELL SOMEONE WHO SMOKES THAT YOU HAVE A NEAT TRICK THAT YOU'D
LIKE TO BET HIM ON. GET HIS CIGARETTES AND PLACE THEM STANDING UP
ON A TABLE. TAKE ONE CIGARETTE AND BALANCE IT ACROSS THE TOP
OF THE PACK. TELL HIM THAT YOU CAN FLIP THE CIGARETTE UP
IN THE AIR WITH YOUR FINGER SO THAT IT FALLS DOWN AND GOES
INTO THE PACK. HOWEVER, WHEN YOU BRING YOUR FINGER DOWN TO FLIP
THE CIGARETTE, YOU SMASH THE PACK WITH YOUR FIST.
THEN YOU LOOK APOLOGETIC AND TELL THE GUY, "OOPS, I MISSED."
