I was thinking about this today at work.

One of my fellow employees was doing that fold with the $20.00 bill bit, where you can make it look like the Pentagon on one side and the towers on the other after the 911 attacks.

I thought about the routine that follows.

This is a close-up, street, or parlor routine.

Use a $20.00 flash bill. Start your patter by marking the bill in a magical manner. Then show how to fold the bill and explain that this was figured out by someone who had way to much time on their hands. Unfold the bill and explain that by folding the bill a certain way you created an illusion of the two images. Then remark, "Of course, if it was up to me, I would turn this bill into something else". Light the bill and produce a peace symbol button. "Like Peace" (pause)
"And a little spending money!" Take the magically restored $20.00 out of your shirt pocket and show the same mark.

Just an idea. I have read the previous thread about the airplanes. While I think that may be a bit much, this smaller closeup effect actually has a cool story and ending.

Now, let the games begin.

Would you describe the bit with the $20.00 and the Pentagon and Towers in a bit more detail. It's news to me. -Jon

Certainly Jontown!

There is a certain way to fold a $20.00 dollar bill so that when you show it from the front it looks like the towers with smoke coming from the top. The back side looks like the Pentagon after the attack on that building. It's actually kinda eerie that somebody actually came up with something like that.

The instructions, (like everything else on the planet) can be found on the WWW.
