    Came down with a bad cold and can't taste or smell anything. This is my chance to try a "knock birds out of the air, make people gag" tobacco. What should I try?

    Coniston cut plug scented. :) Might want to call the hazmat team first so you wont have to interrupt your smoke.

    Make sure you use a safety cob so you don't have to call Ghost Busters later. I bought a pipe that had a bad ghost of flower scented soap in it. It was horrible. I have done the salt and booze treatment twice and still get a hint every now and then.

    Sounds like a great opportunity to smoke up those blends in the back of the drawer. Borkum Riff. Mans Best Friend. You know, the things you would give to your brother-in-law if he smoked a pipe.
