  1. I’ve known this trick for fifty years. It was old when I learned it. Every time I’ve done it, the audience was very amused. Few, if any, had ever seen it before. It’s a good one.
    How old is this trick? And does it have any bearing on why the design of the package has stayed the same for years?
    And what about the “Pep Boys” matches? If I can find a pack of the US auto store’s advertising matches, I’ll try to send in the gag.
    Ain’t the web wonderful?
