OK I get the whole thing behind "the mixture that shall not be named" but I'm not getting the reference in regards to that pipe. Someone help me out.
Hefner famoulsy smoked THE MIXTURE.
Hugh Hefner not only famously smoked a pipe, he marketed the pipe in this ad...although according to a personal source he only smoked them for advertisement, his personal choice was a Dunhill Black Billiard. It had the bunny head where the white dot belongs. The Playboy Pipe you could buy was, according to legend, made by one of Dunhill's subsidiary companies. I have seen two in my life, both unsmoked and on display on a stand. Both were given to members of the old Playboy Club in Chicago.
Legend is that Hefner gave these pipes outs himself to folks as well. BUT, one of pipe owners said that if you ever saw Hef's pipe it looked different than the ones he gave out.
One of these owners, who was a member of the Chicago Playboy Club, said that the club had a bunny with a cigarette tray and the only pipe tobacco on the tray were small black pouches with a Gold Bunny printed on it. Inside that package? THE MIXTURE WHICH SHALL NOT BE NAMED!
...have I ever mentioned that I smoke Meers and love Sugar Barrel?:deadhorse:
(Rest in Peace Sugar Barrel...luckily I stockpiled)
