Confession is good for the soul...

This is a discussion on Confession is good for the soul... within the General Pipe Forum forums, part of the Pipe Smokers Forums category; OK, let's admit it. Many of us have at least one pipe that is so hideous that you wouldn't smoke ...

    Confession is good for the soul...

    OK, let's admit it. Many of us have at least one pipe that is so hideous that you wouldn't smoke it in private, let alone public. Whether a gift from an over-enthusiastic friend or relative, an accidental click on the internet, a drunken dare or just poor taste, we do have these monstrosities.

    I offer an opportunity for catharsis. Post your moose. Perhaps not proudly, but at least in good company. Here's my own particular favourite shame:

    My excuse is that it came unbidden as a bonus with a lot from eBay.

    I don't know what you'd call this shape, but since it's impossible to smoke, it doesn't really matter. The cork, yes, CORK bowl is meerschaum lined, and the stem is so small you couldn't get a ball point pen refill in it, let alone a pipe cleaner. Whoever had it last actually managed to smoke a bowl somehow, but there's no way I'm going to try. It just looked so stupid in the antique store that I had to have it.

    I dunno... I rather like that one. I could easily see myself sitting on the porch smoking that whilst giving funny looks to passersby.

    I looked up the maker of this "lovely thing". What little there is on t'internet indicates that this may have been around for over 90 years; no-one has as yet deemed it possible to smoke it.

    Perhaps if I put on my lederhosen I'll get the inspiration needed. Judging from this pipe the Germans are a strange and cruel nation...

    (Or perhaps the Swiss - I thought they would be more neutral.)

    I can't do pictures, but I have a pipe that was given me by an elderly (older than me!) lady. It had been her husband's who had long since passed away. It is an ugly rusticated squat thing about five inches long and the bowl is about an inch and a half inside diameter. The stem is over 3/4 of an inch across at the button. It looked like he smoked it once, and I smoked it once. That was enough.

    I am likewise mystified by it.

    Apparently I can't do pictures either. Can't seem to get attachments to work here, and can't seem to be able to upload anything to photobucket anymore. I've become an elderly technophobe overnight...

    Well, Mark, I can see the images you post, even if you can't.
    If I could write poetry, I'd be a poet. I can't, so I smoke a pipe instead ....

    Strange. I can't find the edit button. My post was supposed to quote steinr1.

    We are the League of Ugly Pipes. We will not stand for this public humiliation. We give this warning on this thread: Your edits and attachments will become more and more difficult until this heartless shaming ceases. We will expand our operations to adjacent threads, in particular those containing "attractive" pipes, i.e., those with no interest or character. Stop at once or suffer the consequences.

    I dont know anything about pipes but this thing looks industrious. It has character in its own way.
