This devolved quickly and I wasn't even a part of it.
It didn't devolve. It followed a trajectory that was predictable and in fact started quite early.
There is a box in which christians can make funny comments. The atheists simply have a larger box for the same thing. And there may be people that aren't bound to any boxes.

A lot of our threads devolve quickly into a bunch of guys sharing funny comments and often the topic changes quite a bit. It's perfectly normal around here.
You are an easy-going fellow with a fine sense of humor. Not typical of the angry, joyless, and intolerant atheists around Madison.
Madison, you say? Hmmmm... All yer atheists belong to me. Well, most. I animate them sequentially along your path. That you walk and pray randomly pisses me off. Sorry, for the grumpiness. It arises from transient delays. You ought to stop and ask Rusty? Dat you in there? If it's me I'll answer. Shockingly there are other atheist animators. It's a tough gig. If I don't answer get real close and whisper 'check'. They'll think you're satan.
Hey, bartender. I'll have what he's having.

Many individual pipes will "smite" me when I see them, but if I were to name a single shape with which I'm smitten I'd have to say the Canadian. I know there's a Lumberman in this photo. I like them, too.

I approve of all of those pipes, though I'll admit to being bemused at how you keep them so pristine. All of my pipes are heavily gnawed and noticeably blackened.
+ me. With me lately if the stem or bit isn't broaken then I'm ahead. I have three in line for repair at the moment, including a Jobey bent billiard and a Ben Wade Majestic.
BTW, I'm really beginning to warm up to the Canadian. But still on the lookout for the right horn.

Dropping and snapping the tenon on my first horn allowed me to successfully apply for my current rank as Under-secretary to the Minister of Pipe Breaking. Seems we share similar taste in pipes and the same unfortunate talent for breaking them.

My Curt Rollar horn is due back from repair around the Fourth of July.
An empty pipe stand quietly awaits its return.

Yes. It's a 1989 Donegal Rocky XL264. It's big. The overall length is 6 1/2".
For size, here's a comparison with a more typically sized Canadian, the Orlik Golden Contrast:
