You Will Need
- A dollar bill
- An audience
Fold the dollar bill in half, crosswise from end to end. Then fold it lengthwise, from top to bottom.
Make a small tear, about a quarter inch long, a half inch in from the folded edge of the bill.
Pretend to rip
Pretend to rip this piece off with your right fingers while actually holding the corner folded down with your left thumb. Pretend to throw this piece away.
Ask the audience how many holes will be in the bill when you unfold it. Will there be one, two, or four?
Cover the torn piece with your fingers as you unfold the bill, snapping it open. Ask them to point out the holes. There will be none, just a tiny slit that won't be visible to the eye.
