A: You want to see something gross?
B: Not really.
A: Here, watch this.
B: [inaudible 00:17]
A: Yeah, maybe not.
B: How do you do it?
A: You really want to know?
A: Okay. This is a great one to do, especially if you have little cousins or a girl you want to gross out. So the secret is, when nobody’s looking, you want to cut a small piece off the straw.
A: Now you can use just your butter knife or if you have a pair of scissors, and you hide this piece right here, in the side of your cheek and you can talk normally, nobody will notice.
B: Yeah, look at you. You’ve got it down pretty well.
A: Yeah, you do this when no one’s looking, though. Then you take this and you’re going to hold the straw like this.
A: And the reason is, because when you bring it to your chin you’re going to push up, and what’s happening is that it’s actually being pushed into your hand.
A: But it looks like it’s being pushed up into your jaw. As you turn with your tongue, it takes a little bit of practice with the tongue, you bring it right over here between the lip and the bottom of your front lower gum. And that’s just like…
B: This takes some practice.
A: A little bit. It’s kind of like tying the knot in a cherry stem. You’ve just got to practice a little bit. You hold it like this. You get this into position from the side of the cheek over here, so it’s standing upright.
B: And there you go. Okay, I got it. I got it.
A: And then you have to get rid of the dirty work. You can bring up the napkin and just wipe your face and bring everything down.
A: But usually, people are so grossed out that nobody’s looking.
B: Not paying attention.
A: So that’s how you do the straw through the jaw.
