I think there are probably safer methods for these tricks nowadays (nearly 60 years on...)

Posted:classic!

the method for the 'blazing sponge trick' is superb:

1. douse sponges in petrol.
2. light them on fire.
3. put them in your mouth.

eek

You could also put in a little potassium for nicer effects, then your mouth won't just burn but there would be a nice little explosion with reddish flames. Just an idea.
