Don't Let Your Wife Get Between You And Your Pipes

Post by Goose55 » Tue Aug 08, 2017 1:54 pm

Don't let your wife get between you and your pipes. Or keep them under lock and key, because look what I just read on an eBay listing...

"Up for bid is this very nice SAVINELLI "LOLLO" pipe bowl in excellent condition, looking for someone to supply it with a new pipe stem. Why? because an angry wife, broke her husbands collection of pipes." ......

8O wow :(

Years ago DL gave me a sandblasted Lollo. It's great for clenching. My wife has never tried to break it.

Naaahhh. That's a sales tactic. Most wives aren't violent. You have poor Rev Thom quivering about his pipes. He's a new father and he doesn't need to be told that women are psychopath pipe killers. It ain't true. They're partners. You can trust your pipes with your wife. She likely knows where they are ... having kidnapped them. It's leverage. Nobody destroys the leverage. LOL!

So you're saying there's a Mrs Goose55.

Those words aren't in the post. One might infer that I'm implying that there is a Mrs Goose55 but I'm not actually. Context. If it was a PM addressed to Goose then I would be implying that. But I'm actually addressing everyone who reads it.

It's interesting what Goose reads elsewhere, believes, and thinks should be passed on to people on CPS.
Marital advise from an eBay pipe auction? Oh c'mon. Really? If your wife is breaking your pipes then you have a much bigger problem than broken pipes, whether you, S&S, specifically have a wife or not. Of course it might be that Goose was just passing on pipe advice. In that case we should consider 'wife' as a proxy for dogs, kids, ourselves, family, weather, tectonic events, generally the world other than our pipes. 8O Yeah. :lol:

In other words - Don't believe everything you read. Especially on the internet. Especially from someone trying to sell something on the internet.

Also, I found a '64 Corvette in a garage down the street. An old lady is selling it for $4000. Her son bought it new, drove it for a week, was drafted and he parked it in her garage before going off to war. He was killed in 'Nam and it's sat there since. She's 103 years old and looking to sell the car so she can move into a nursing home. I'll be happy to buy it on your behalf if you want to wire me the money. She has another son who's a Nigerian Prince looking to unload some bullion. I can hook you up if you'd like.

Dang! Busted (so to speak).
Every word in my listing for that pipe is true. Kinda. Sorta.

I asked the ebayer if the stem from this pipe was available and he said no. She had thrown all the stems in the trash.

Wasn't there a con man who hung around CPS briefly with a tale of woe about being homebound with an abusive wife? An Englishman as I recall.
