    I might have to call the ISPCP (International Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Pipes) before this goes much further. I may also make trip to the UK to confiscate his Squadron Leader and his Old Boy.

    "..........and I must say..................oh shiite, I forgot what I was gonna say, ..............oh yes, while this mear is still no way clean, all of that will come out in stages........." IF it survives that long.

    Hope he consults a professional. ;)

    Let me just say for the record that what I know about cleaning up estate meers you could put in a gnat's pisspot, but I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with drill bits or sandpaper. 80 proof alcohol? Looks like it's doing him more good than it is the pipe! ;)

    Pardon the ignorance, but, why would you want to clean the pipe? It looks better with the colouring. I do understand cleaning the stem and whatnot, but why the bowl?

    More like "pardon the wisdom", DK. I think you've got the right idea.

    To me, half the fun in a Meer is the colouring that comes after its age...

    well, he did state that he couldn't put his pinky finger
    in the bowl at first. So, the cake had to be removed.
    However, dropping it repeatedly on the table wasn't
    a help. When a bit of a claw breaks off, he'll learn. :rolleyes:
    Also, being a little pissed didn't help things along
    much either.

    He should have stopped at the removing of the cake. Clean the stem; get the toby outta the Persian slipper on the mantle and fire up a bowl!

    I don't think he will manage to get rid of all that nasty brown and yellow staining to the bowl!

    The general idea with a meer is that the brown and yellow staining is held in high regard. They only get that way by smoking them. This dude is a pipes worst nightmare.

    What's really interesting to me is the comments left by other viewers. We are in the minority as far as our opinion of his efforts.

    LOL. Yeah, I watched this vid a while back. I too have my fingers crossed for the pipe.
    Watching this feels sort of like watching a manic schizophrenic try to open a can of corn with a toothbrush.
