HE CAN DO LITTLE.
Source: Games for Everybody
All the players sit in a circle. One, knowing the catch, begins by
saying: "Ahem, he can do little who cannot do this." While saying
this, he taps a stick on the floor several times.
This stick passes from one to the other in turn, each one thinking
that the stick must be tapped a certain number of times, but the catch
is that just before saying "He can do little who cannot do this," each
one ought to clear his throat as the leader did at first. Allow the
game to continue around the circle two or three times before
explaining the catch. A forfeit is paid by each player who does not
do it correctly.
