Named after the master vanishing man himself, the Houdini is the quickest way out of a sticky situation, and also having to avoid good-byes, which can take forever. Basically, get up and leave...don't say good-bye...don't make eye contact...don't inform anyone you're leaving...just vanish.

1. In reference to the great escapologist, Harry Houdini, who popularized the disappearing act; Any female who loves you, leaves you, and then wants you back. A Hudini, usually around the age of 18 or 19, will act totally interested in you one minute then disinterested the next. Often times a "Houdini" will initiate conversations (whether it be in person, facebook, or text) and suggest wanting to hanging out, but then disappears on you when you least expect it.

2. A flaky, two-faced, inconsiderate female. She almost always acts unaware of her inconsistency. The men who fall victim to these "Houdinis," are warned to undo the leash tied around their neck and abandon ship before he falls victim subsequent times. Those who are deemed a "Houdini" must be called out on it, preferably in person and without apology.
"Hey bro, so how's that girl you took out the other night?"

"Oh her? She's just a Houdini. I've got better things to do than spend time and energy on one of those."

"If she wasn't such a Houdini, I'd consider taking her up on her invite to the concert."

"I'd hang out with you but you're currently on my Houdini list after that disappearing act of yours! (she'll ask what it means and then you can define it for her)

"-Oooh, the Houdinis of our lives *groaning in frustrating*-"

To punch someone so hard in the gut that they fucking die.
Harry Houdini claimed that he could withstand any punch. That was until he got houdini'd and his kidney burst open.

When you're having sex with a girl doggy-style in front of a window and she is tied down (this is important) and all of the sudden you tap out with your friend so now he is having sex with her and you show up in front of the window, on the second floor, in a three-piece suit and top hat. She gasps at amazement when you pull two rabbits, also having sex, out of your top-hat. The rabbits turn into confetti then you throw down a smoke bomb and disappear. At the exact same moment your friend runs out the door without her noticing. You high-five your pal in the parking lot and go for milkshakes. Then she wakes up...
Wow, you really pulled off a Houdini tonight boys! - Milkshake maker at your local pop shop

Most of you guys aren 't getting this one right, a true houdini is when a man is doing doggie style with a woman. The man reaches a point of climax, pulls out and his buddy quickly comes out of hiding and begins to take his place In doggie style with the woman. At this point the original man sneaks around to her face, blows his load onto the poor girls face and yells at her loudly "Houdini!" The act described in other definitions involving spitting on the back of your partner and then jizzing on her face is actually called a Philly Fakeout.
My pal Fitzy hid in the closet and came out at just the right time and we pulled a houdini on her. Needless to say, she was pissed.
