    I was at a local recording studio yesterday (owned by a friend of mine), when this young man came by to clean the windows. When he began to clean the windows on the inside in the lounge he instantly made a comment about how much he loved the smell of the pipe tobacco that I was smoking, (Uhle's Black Stoker). He then asked if I would be interested in purchasing some pipes from him that he obtained from an abandoned storage unit. He said "I don't know anything about pipes and don't know anybody that smokes one, but I have 11 used pipes and I would take 20 bucks for them all if it's not to much." To make a long story short I said I would take them so I give him the 20 bucks and when he dropped them off today I was pleasantly surprised to find they consisted of : 3 Grabow Royal Duke's, 2 Grabow Lark's, 3 Whitehall's, 2 Medico's, 1 Kaywoodie. They are not all in pristine condition and a couple are pretty rough and all need a good once over, but I still got a great deal. God Bless!!! Ray

    Yes it is actually smokable however it is just a novelty. Could you imagine having to load that bowl full and smoking it until gone? :bing:

    Glad someone finally asked about that, I couldn't tell if it was clever photoshopping or not :P

    No, I couldn't. Which is why I asked. You'd definately have to sit awhile with that one. Maybe days,huh? Take a pretty big tub to fill it, too. LOL :D
