    Not sure if I'm surprized by this or not. I never thought of it before really. I suppose some assh...somebody had to do it.
    It has many uses maybe. Like for the home blender wanting to find out what a blend indeas would be like bfore he wastes any toby. (Scretching my head) or is this one of those gay pipes because if you look at it close enough it kinda looks like a giant.......

    I just can't imagine who or why someone would want or use it.

    The question here is why?

    Of course I have seen a 454 in a VW bug and the fellow that built it said "why not?"

    all over it. :thumbsd:

    It does resemble a "testicular region".

    If one were to pack both bowls,plug one and light the other, it could probably be smoked as two bowls back-to-back without switching pipes. Smoke two blends at once, put a cigar in one side and have a pipe and cigar simultaneously, there is probably an endless number of wacky things this pipe could do, other than just enjoying and relaxing with a pipe.

    To me it smacks of a solution in need of a problem.

    Well, since I own a similar one (mine is smooth), I think I can answer the question "why"? :lol:

    I bought mine from an Ebay seller for a seriously discounted price (unsmoked). I smoke only aromatics in it and since I don't smoke aros much, it doesn't get a whole lot of use. But it's great for combining blends. The last bowl (er... bowls, plural!) I smoked were C&D's Autumn Evening and Lane's BCA. Nice vanilla maple mix. I've also found success combining Sugar Barrel with a straight burley and several other combos.

    When I get the gurgles, I just lean the pipecleaner towards the bore that needs cleaning. It'll go straight into the stem and then pressure in the proper direction cleans out either bowl. It works!

    The pipe is basically "fun" rather than a serious smoke. It doesn't get a lot of use but it makes a great conversation piece, gonads and all. I suppose I could simply load both bowls with one tobacco, but why? I have other pipes for that. This pipe is not recommended for anyone that is just looking for a nice meer to smoke. I have 30, 29 "serious" pipes and one "fun" one. :eek:hyeah:

    Cool! Weird, but cool. Personally, I like the "jar of formaldehyde and charge the locals a dollar to see it" idea. Around here, I'd get rich! LOL

    I like it!/No I don't.

    Shuddup!/Make me! (Scuffle ensues...)

    Ignore him(points to self)...like I said, I like it!



    The fact I'm off my meds doesn't change the fact that that is neat...or the fact it is a piece in the ' dress like Peter Griffin from The Family Guy' costume I want. Ball chin? Check.

    Giggity giggity.

    I'll put it this way... as a confirmed clencher, I refuse to be photographed smoking it! It adds nothing to any macho image I may try to project.... :yikes:

    I'd bet you'd have no problems at all in a gay bar.......that is if you were trying to "hookup" smoking that "unique" pipe. I try NOT to have my pipage look like a scrotum nor a penis but sometimes you (Puff) can't help it! I scored a Yanik meer for a song and though it looks like a calabash (rustic) it also does indeed look like a bent pecker (a huge one!) Girth that'd make king-kong whimper! ;)

    So, I say, smoke your "pipe" and enjoy!

    That's a relief!

    Now I just gotta find a gay bar and test your theory.

    You guys are brutal! I should have known when Mister Moo was the one that told me about this place! :xd:

    WILLIE!!

    On the other Hand I bet Falconeer could find some legitimate purpose in a pipe such as this. Well maybe.

    I heard the pay for being a Mohel was awful, but you get to keep the tips!
