Penn Jillette speaking at an event in Washington, D.C. Credit: Gage Skidmore (CC BY-SA 3.0)
One of Penn Jillette's famous parties featured a South American man nailing his penis to a board, tying that board to a rope, and using that rope to pull a wagon containing a topless woman across his band room floor. Though the man had done the stunt before, he was in for a bit of a surprise: Not until he arrived at Penn's home did he realize that the floor in the band room was carpeted!

["I swear," Penn later recalled, "I told him it was carpeted and that this would create more friction before he got there; it was a language problem, not a lack of compassion and foresight on my part."]
