    Whoa... that is unique. Looks like it should only be used for ceremonies of the most ancient kind.

    I was thinking coprolite myself. Kinda neat how they used the natural shape of the root, but I don't think you'll find that in my rack anytime soon.

    Now that took class to use that word.
    :gjob:
    My first thought was what the neighbor's dog left in my yard the other day.
    But then again I've been found to be crude, rude and socially unacceptable...

    Looks like something the guy fished out of his toilet.

    The seller said it's one of a kind. Let's hope so.

    Anybody remember buzzjack?

    Looks like someone got bored and gave up off halfway through carving a pipe.

    I don't know what you guys are talking about. That's the most gorgeous piece of work I've ever seen! For your sake, Lestrade, I sure hope you won that auction. Mark my words, that pipe will go down in history as the pipe that no other carver could top. No way! Not that beauty!

    :xd:

    Sorry, I just couldn't keep a straight face after saying all that. :p:

    I think it's lovely! What an awesome pipe, perfect for an ol' hag like myself ;)
    I can sit in my old shack deep in the forest with my magic pipe.

    I wonder if you rub it maybe a genie will pop out or maybe a troll?

    It looks very troll like to me. I think HCraven hit it squarely, coprolite. I have a small collection of dinosaur poops and that pipe looks like some of my specimens, except for the colour.
