From Publishers Weekly
Comic duo Penn & Teller (200,000 copies sold of Cruel Tricks for Dear Friends ) share a wealth of characteristically twisted tricks involving edibles in this maliciously funny book. Anyone wishing to tie a cherry stem with one's tongue or surreptitiously steal an appetizer from a dining companion's plate would do well to study this invaluable text. Written in the voice of the large, ponytailed Penn--the smaller, balder Teller never speaks--this volume divulges bizarre uses for coffee-creamer containers; offers a fake recipe for "Swedish Lemon Angels" that creates a frothing "volcano" by blending reactive ingredients; and debunks a popular magician's ploy by explaining how to bend spoons and move plates through "psychokinesis." Several card tricks here require the collusion of restaurant staff, and thus may be hard to achieve without shelling out healthy tips. Not to worry, though--plenty of other sick games await those who prefer affordable (not to say cheap) gags. Step-by-step photos show the authors hamming and scamming, and props such as a phony fortune cookie message ("The chef spit in your food") are included. The primary lessons here: keep your eyes on your plate, and always request separate checks. 100,000 first printing; BOMC selection; author tour.

I had a copy years ago and i was surprised to be able to still find it for Christmas gifts for my kids even though i had to order single copies from individual vendors since no one had more than one in stock. One of them even had a partial bag of goodies that comes with it, which after this long after publication, i absolultely did not expect.
If you like mild pranks and harmless practical jokes at the dinner table, this is the book for you.
the fortune cookie was hilarious!
