Exploding cigarette joke

When you offer your friend a cigarette, and they take it from the cigarette pack, it explodes in their hand. To set up this alarming joke, all you have to do is pull back the spring-loaded clip, put a percussion cap underneath, and then replace the end of the cigarette so that the spring-loaded clip is held back. The cigarette is now all ready to be taken by an unsuspecting friend.
