Topic: Magic Knot / Thread Trick
Message: Posted by: DavidEscapes (Aug 14, 2002 01:08PM)
Hi all

Sorry if this is just basic magic which any idiot should know but I am trying to find some information a trick I saw on the Penn and Teller special 'don't try this at home'. The trick was performed by an American actress, her name escapes me. It involved her feeding a thread through a pierced earlobe then having two audience members hold an end of the thread each. The audience members then pulled the thread fowards and, without either letting go, it came free of the ear. Without a drop of blood or gashed lobe to be seen.

Many thanks all

Duncan

Thanks for your help WR.

Seems like a hard trick to find! Do you have any idea where I could get some info on it? If it is the principle used by Penn and Teller I would like to find out where I could buy it. I am in the UK so a supplier here would be great. But I would be happy to order from the US if I have to. But I wouldn't mind having a supplier recommended to me. I don't wanna get stung :(
