LOL! He's going to stop posting if we keep this up. Apparently in Denmark there are no pipe shape discussions at all. What a sad place.
I was going to tell him the story of Charatan's Banker vs. Dunhill Diplomat. But I figured he has had enough British naming for one week.

This is a great idea Brian. Thanks for the photos. Please don't get distracted by all the background noise and side discussions around here. We do want to see the progress of the POY.

Very exciting!

Yours was already delivered. However, I slept outside your house and waited until the mail lady dropped it off. I then waited for her to drive off, took the pipe for myself, drove to Las Vegas, married the pipe, and we are now expecting our first humanity's first human/pipe hybrid baby.
