First you find some type of firearm, doesnt matter the type as long as it's loaded and saftey is off.

Then you put it in your mouth and give the trigger a gentle squeeze, dont tug it, thats the first mistake alot of shooters make. If you tug it your shot will not be as accurate. Try to hit your brain, you probably wont get it the first time because it's so small, but keep trying and as soon as you get it you'll be able to bunny hop.

This is the best article I've seen online describing it. The only thing better is actually talking to somebody and watching them do it.

Here is another good one from the same place.

If you pinch the seat for a bunnyhop you'll probably hurt the skin on your legs, just learn to grip the pedals and start small. Work on them for a while at slow speeds without hopping actual things, then grab an empty coke can and hop that for a while, then build up.

You could try making a hop stand to practice on, like in this vid:
http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=202962
Actually my dad made a better one after that, with cement bases and PVC pipes, but still. Timing is really important, even if you can get 2 feet sometimes it's hard not to hit the bar on the way up or down, so it helps to practice.

Don't pinch the seat unless you're doing barspins... and even then you don't really [bold]need[/bold] to.

Probably not appropriate for here, but since I know you were joking, I'll let it slide. Reminds me of that cop from the US that got busted in Thailand for having sex with an underage girl. While he was in jail, he managed to get the service revolver from a sleeping guard, and he killed himself with it. Now, I'm not one to question this story, but apparently, he shot himself in the head. Twice.
