A contest!: How to Make a Cigarette Lighter - The Hip-hop way

Okay, so clearly MacGyver has influenced countless people, and evidently that includes underground hip-hop artists. Here's a lyric from some rapper named Ras Kass that details a MacGyverism:

“Mama don’t cry/Don’t worry ’bout me/As you can see/I’m actually better than before/Live wire: motherfuckin’ survivor/Fuckin’ MacGyver/Give me some toilet paper/Three pencil leads/I’ll make a cigarette lighter.”

–Ras Kass, “Shine”

Okay, perhaps, I'm dense, but how does one get fire from graphite and tissue?

Doesn't matter- I'm challenging all you rhythmically gifted people to post your own MacGyverism rap. It needs to explain how to make something and rhyme. The prize: well, if I get at least twenty entries--which I highly doubt--I'll send the winner a copy of my book. Email your entries, or just a post a comment to this thread. Whatever.
