As the currently reigning (and likely never to be repeated) BRATASS of the year, and since I was told when receiving my tiara, sash and bouquet of giant hogweed that I would be representing BRATASSes at shopping mall, Blockbuster Video and bowling alley closings, Superfund site designations, sewer plant cleanings and such for this entire year . . .

I feel I must speak on Mr. McP’s behalf if not in his defense, for there is no defense to be made. The crime has been confessed. Instead, I ask for mercy,

This is a man of impeccable taste. He knows and loves briar, as any decent man would. He knows, smokes and even blends tobacco - he is a maven’s maven. A pipe and tobacco gourmand’s gourmand.

Who among us has never smoked a cOB?
Even as a youth? Answer honestly. God sees your heart.

Yes, Johnny has admitted to falling into sin. But where is our forgiveness? Our own, searching, inward look?
Let he who is without sin cast the first cOB.

I don’t know how I’m just now seeing this, but it gave me a chuckle. I am unabashedly unrepentant, although I love a good Briar, I am a true believer that cobs have their place in the pipe world, for me some tobaccos even smoke better in a cob. To many of you this may elicit a gasp! To that I can only say... COB NATION FOREVER!

Every once in a while I will think of this pipe and wonder what if. I've admired it for years. It's a Bang. If I ever saw it for sale again I think I could justify purchasing it.

Very nice looking pipe. I had one like it once, given to me by a co-worker. I passed it along later to another co-worker, and now wish I had it back. That's how it works sometimes I guess. Anyway, nice pipe.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)
