"Ain't That a Peach?" by Armand T Ringer has some interesting bar bets and gags that are unusual. The book is O/P, but H&R might have a few copies left...

Pinchy Winchy is one of my favorites. It is like the quarter trick but you use a burnt cork in your pocket and you apply the soot to their face with you finger. It is best told about in "Harpo Speaks" Harpo used to do it at parties.

I did it in the crew bar on a ship once. The next time I went back the victims I had were doing it on others and it had became the rage in the bar.
Some are born idiots.

Some are made idiots.

Some have idiocy thrust upon them.

Is Armand T Ringer an anagram of the author's real name?

There is an old bar bet about dropping a paper matchstick and having it land on its edge.

Find your sucker and explain that paper matches have 2 sides, and if you were to drop the match...about 50 percent of the time it would come up the dark side ...50 percent the light side.

Tell them that when you drop it, you can have it land on it's edge everytime.

If they belive you or they don't offer to demonstrate.

Fold the match in half so it is in the shape of a "V".

It will allways land on its edge...and you both share a good laugh.

Now ask for a coin, the more value the better it is......for you. Here in Canada we have a two dollar coin so that's perfect.

Tell them that you will bet them thier coin, that you can drop it and have it land on its edge everytime.

If you can't, you will give them the same amount from your money.

Tell them that if you can drop it and have it land on its edge every time...you win thier money but, they will walk away with the knowledge on how to get free money for the rest of thier lives.

Once they agree you pull out the sheet of paper on which you have previously written the words "ON IT"S EDGE EVERYTIME".

Place the paper on the table and drop the coin on it...there it landed on its edge every time.

I include this in my restaurant work and can pull an extra 20 bucks a night from it. Ifyou explain that they will learn how to win money themselves. They will have little trouble forking over the bet.

This one gets a lot of groans, but it makes me giggle.

Whoa, you use a sucker bet to swindle your audience out of some of their money, and you still have a job? Does this sound odd to anyone else?

I'll bet you for every push-up you do I can do 3.
Secret: no matter how many your subject does, you only do 3 push ups. You said for every push up, not each push up.
you have to be able to do 3 push ups. I have done very well with this one

Stand the volunteer on a chair. Stand a good distance away. The challenge is this "Before I count to three, you'll be off the chair and on the floor." Start counting ... one ... two ... and then turn and calmly leave the room.

I mention that in high school, I held the record for sit-ups for 2 years. And after all these years, I can still do between 3 and 4 hundred sit-ups in 2 to 3 minutes.
Take the bet and then make a big build up of someone holding your feet, etc.
Then in 3 minutes do your 4 sit-ups. Which is between 3 .... And 4 hundred.
I have won more than a few $5.00 bets.

Dave,
Glad you liked it.
Just wait or get them talking about exercise, the old days, etc. and play it straight. I'll just mention my record and sit back and wait. Sooner or later someone questions me and then many times they challenge me! Then the bet is on.

Thanks for the handling tips. I like it a lot. It's pretty sophisticated. Dave
