Exploding cigarette lighter joke

When you lend your lighter to a friend, as soon as they take the top off there is not only a loud report, but the cigarette lighter also falls apart. To set up this alarming joke, you need to pull back the spring-loaded clip, put a percussion cap underneath, and then reassemble the lighter so that the spring-loaded clip is held back. The lighter is now all ready to scare your friend.
