Oh, that sent me down the memory lane! I wondered why I would know the two guys, and then I started to hear the music…

Sure, do it with a nickel, but make sure the echidna is up on both coins because that would be embarrassing …


OK, the one I used to do is apparently called the haunted matchbox. Matchbox, fishing line, safety pin.

Damn! If was a smoker, I would have known that trick. Damn you, clean lungs!
