Bamboozlers: King of Clubs

Moving the shot glasses around.

The Bet:

Line up six shot glasses in a row so that the first three are full of liquid and the last three are empty (Fig. 1).

Challenge someone to mix the glasses so they alternate full and empty. The catch is that only one glass can be moved.

The Secret:

Pour glass # 2’s contents into glass # 5. Then place empty glass # 2 back where it was. (Fig. 2) Some say that alcohol makes you fat, but it actually makes you lean. Lean against the wall, chairs and sometimes the floor!
