This is a good trick. It will require a few days preparation (and practice) but it's guaranteed to amaze the audience whether the trick succeed or failed. It requires 2 chicken bones, 2 tables (one must be shorter then the other, and the bigger one must be covered with table cloth) and 2 "magic" boxes. The trick is that you will mess up your trick. You will say that you wanted to do a rope trick, but you forgot the rope. Then you will say that you will use the bone of the chicken from your recent meal instead. You will say that you will turn it into a rope with a knot in the middle. Then you do the magic on it but you will miss the magical words on it, the result will be a bone with a knot on it!
This trick is half science.
Drop one of the chicken bones into the vinegar. Make sure it's totally immersed. Leave it there for a day. The bone will now be like a piece of string. Tie it in a knot. Leave it sit on the table for another day. In time it will be hard again. Place two tables one by the other but so that the audience doesn't see tthe smaller one (you covered the big one with table cloth). Put the knotted bone inside one of the magic boxes. Leave the other one empty, set them both on the low table that no one but the magician can see.
DURING THE TRICK:
Take the empty magic box and put it on the table. Let everyone see that it's empty. Place the chicken bone in the box. Wave your magic wand over it and say Abracadabra, pull out the bone and look very disappointed.
When you're revealing that nothing happened, look embarrassed and quickly put everything back on the table. Make sure you put the box as close as possible to the other box.
Make it look like you're starting to explain the next trick. Then have your assistant (or do it yourself) remind you that you used the wrong magic word. Look very excited and start repeating the correct magic word ALAKA-CHICKEN to yourself. Moving quickly like you're excited to get going again, put the bone back in the empty box while it's still on the low table.
Now turn to the audience and ask them to help you remember the new magic word.
Pick up the box with the knotted bone inside. Wave the wand and say ABRACA-CHICKEN!
In all the excitement and confusion the audience should miss the fact that you switched boxes.
Realize that you've said the wrong word again. Look nervous -- it's an advanced magic word *gulp*. Reach in and pull out the chicken bone with a knot in it.
(you can say something like: The bad news is that it didn't turn into a rope. The good news is that it does have a knot in it).
The thing I really like about this trick is that even if they do figure out you switched boxes they'll be hard pressed to sort out how you tied a knot in a chicken bone.
