Get the group seated in chairs in a circle and give each a grocery bag. Say that you are going to have an endurance test to see who can last the longest. Each person is told to place the bag over his or her head to minimize embarrassment. Then tell them to take off something that they didn’t wear to bed the night before. Some will catch on immediately, others will take off an article of clothing or piece of jewelry, etc., but don’t allow them to give the trick away.
Then they are instructed to take off something else that they didn’t wear to bed the previous evening. Before the slow one takes off too much, yell at them, “Take off the bag, Professor! Or did you wear it to bed last night?!”
