My great-grandpa taught me how to do his fake nickel joke (it involves a little metal apparatus that resembles a stack of nickles that you at some point hide some real dimes in / you “change” dimes into a stack of nickels) . . . and then I forgot how. I have all the pieces though; some day I’ll figure it out again!
