    "Knock on wood" actually is to awaken nature spirits to ask for protection.

    I liked the fiddling with the subtitles, but maybe put those comments inside {these} so it is more clear that it is a comment rather than a literal description of a literal sound/spoken word.

    Did you know curses are caused by the placebo effect? That’s why the robber only entered after he learned about the time limit.

    I think that there is no wood in his that so that ever time someone robbed his house the police will show up

    Love how his boasting is wrong as it takes forever to find something and when he does the house gets robbed "seemingly secure" the robber instantly gets iornyed.

    These guys are so funny. I wood have a channel of my own, I pine for one, but I'm afraid I'm not a man of such timber. its all I can do to simply lumber along and oak not to make an ash of myself.

    Little known fact. While knocking on wood does prevent cruel irony, knocking on something that's not wood actually makes the irony worse.

    Small needless survey of not-wood from where I sit: Desk, not wood. 60's radio, wood. Kitchen cabinets, not wood. Baking board, wood. Closets, not wood. Doors, not wood. Earth globe base, wood. Shelves, not wood. More shelves, wood. Third set of shelves, not wood. Storage shelves, wood. Table, not wood. Book shelves, not wood (two sets). Keyboard wrist rests, wood. Metronome, plywood (I guess that's not wood). Floor, not wood. I am surprised how much really did have wood.

    fun fact: you're supposed to knock in an upward direction to knock the spirits into this realm, so they can protect you. Knocking down sends them to the underworld, and you lose serious cred with the wood spirits. I'm not making this up.

    "Lowest crime rate in this half of New Auston" maybe its because their so little wood to knock on, and thus straight up bad luck happens to all boasting criminals

    funny, all I have to do to knock on wood is accidentally kick my headboard, made of pure Canadian maple.

    That I've had since I was 11.

    Oddly enough, almost nobody realises that you are supposed to knock on wood to deafen the wood sprites that are listening. No wood = no wood sprites to listen = no misfortune anyway.

    Technically MDF is wood. Just very stringy wood.

    Fantastic sketch! Love the ending too. Buuuuuttt...if there was no wood around, he woodn't technically have to knock on it as the original myth comes from the belief that evil demon/gremlin creatures lived in trees (that were cut down and made it into the home as structures or furniture...) and if they heard you making plans or heard things were going well, would indeed try to mess up your life...knocking on wood would then disrupt their hearing of said if you actually want to be free from bad luck, you need to knock while you're talking, not after. Also, no wood, no need to knock. But chances are good the studs in the wall were wood.

    I'd argue that mdf is basically wood. It's made out of compressed wood fibre and resin after all.
