Do you remember the group of smokers at your high-school? Usually the “bad” kids, doing zippo tricks to impress the ladies, probably wearing over-sized leather jackets or track suits.
I’m pretty sure every school has them.
The kids – usually idiots – that would skip class to stand around the edges of the school yard smoking away, spitting huge globs of mucous onto the pavement? Yeah… I remember them well. I’ve never been a big fan of idiots or smokers (really, what’s the difference?), but I’ll say one thing… they had some impressive Zippo tricks in their repertoire.
Zippo Tricks Anyone Can Learn
Here’s a handy little tutorial that’s going to teach you a few simple Zippo tricks that anyone can learn, even a smoker like you! As to what you’ll do with these tricks (especially those of you that don’t smoke) I have no idea. Maybe you can start busting these out at a party? I’ve heard that women find it pretty sexy for an adult man to break out a Zippo lighter at a party and start twirling it around. And if that doesn’t work, there’s always your harmonica or musical spoons.
I once met this guy off the internet… no, not like that. There was a big group of us, and he wore a large leather jacket (in the middle of the summer) and sat quietly smoking for hours, lighting one cigarette with the dying embers of the last one. This fellow reminds me of that, though a little bit cooler.
We’ve all met those kinds of people, so if you decide to give these zippo tricks a try, perhaps scratch my party advice and keep this stuff to yourself. You can practice these Zippo tricks right after you finish riding your penny-farthing back to your mom’s house.
