As the illustrations show, having a doobie in your mouth is the key to making this work.

I learned this technique years ago in a climbing class and it really is useful. You can use the same technique, and both hands, to tie a fast loop around anything.

Also be aware that a bowline can slip. Either leave plenty of tail or add a half-hitch as a stopper knot for safety.

Ive never had a bowline slip, and ive tied that knot countless times. Hell, the more strain on it the tighter it cinches down. Ive played hell beating on them with hammers to get them undone.
