You saw David Copperfield do this on TV and it was incredible! Borrow a Yellow Pencil and borrow a dollar bill. Yes - I said BORROW! Fold the bill in half and plunge the pencil right through the center of the bill. Then, rip the pencil right through the bill. Not only does the audience see the penetration - they HEAR it as well! Unfold the bill and it's completely in tact! You can also make the pencil look like it melts right through the bill! Remember, both bill and pencil are borrowed!
