Re: Penn & Teller: Fool Us

I did think the trick that did fool them... IIRC the trick didn't fool them. The card was forced on both the woman and Jonathan, which is why the knife was most likely genuine. My housemates and I noticed the force on the woman the first time through (he shuffles through a few more cards before giv...

The royal flush was neat, I've no idea how he managed to get hold of extra cards with the same pattern on them as P&T's cards. Yeah that was good too.
