5 Tips for Breaking the Wishbone
1) Make sure it’s bone dry. (See what we did there?)
This is more of a general tip than anything else, but the wishbone needs to be dry for it to break. This means letting the bone sit for a few days or drying it out in the oven.
2) Use your dominant hand.
If you’re right-handed, use your right hand. If you’re left-handed, use your left. If you don’t know which hand is your dominant, rock-paper-scissors yourself and pick the winner.
3) Talk Trash.
We’re talkin’ low blows here. The idea is to get in their head and distract them from what you’re going to do in tip #4. Also, we don’t recommend family insults since you’re probably surrounded by them.
4) Grab the thicker side as close to the top as possible.
So while you’re laying down the smack talk on your opponent, take every advantage of leverage. If you want a 1 hour 33 minute lesson on the advantages of leverage, watch “Over The Top” with Stallone.
5) Sit back and relax.
The scene is set. Your dominant hand is in the winning position. The crowd is watching in anticipation of your victory. Now allow your enraged opponent (from the trash talk) to do all the work, putting all the stress on the weak point. Smell that? That’s the smell of victory (and maybe stuffing).
