This is a great gag to help smokers kick the habit or just have a few laughs.My friends have had a lot of fun doing this at a local cigar shop.

Step 1: Materials

All you need to pull off this little prank is some magician's Flash Cotton.This is a special type of chemically treated cotton that burns very quickly and produces a bright flash of fire. Flash Cotton is used by magicians to produce various pyrotechnic effects (readily available at your local magic shop or online).

1.Flash Cotton
2.Dirty ashtray
3.Victim (smoker)
Nice prank idea. Sadly, the only person I know who i could pull it on is my girlfriend, and she doesn't take too kindly to practical jokes.
That must be too bad, you get a mouth full of liquid smoke on every smooch.
<br /> Make her pull your pants down and spank you......<br /> <br /> Trust me, you will enjoy it.<br /> <br /> There is a funny joke on youtube of a guy getting his girlfriend to clean his gun...<br /> <br /> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBtiMmSjuFc&amp;feature=PlayList&amp;p=A198638EA0B33479&amp;playnext=1&amp;playnext_from=PL&amp;index=36<br /> <br /> <br />
Yeah,my friend Eric owns a cigar shop here in Phoenix and he pulls this one all the time. I wish I could claim credit but he invented it.
I am gonna do this in the ash tray at 7-11, teach them lazy employees a lesson.
Cooooool!!!&nbsp;Have to see about getting some flash cotton, my mother's a smoker and I just want to do something like this... :P<br />
Hey there.Flash Cotton is available on eBay or you can purchase some at your local magic shop.I also have some on my website at ; <a href="http://www.mindseyemagic.com" rel="nofollow">www.mindseyemagic.com</a> Really fun stuff.
This is like one I read years ago. Gun cotton is kind of visible but if you use gunpowder or fine black powder it blends in with the ash.
that could hurt though
Well,Flash Cotton and Gun Cotton are totally different materials.Flash Cotton is very safe and easy to hide by sprinkling a little cigarette ash on it.
Hey.Actually,Gun cotton is a completely different material to the best of my knowledge.I don't think the two are related at all.
Oops, typo. That was supposed to say flash cotton. I was just thinking of several different explosives at once.
