Upside down pipestems

Post by Bloodhound » Thu Mar 15, 2018 3:41 pm

I was on the auction site the other night and saw a bunch of adds with the pictures of the pipes with the pipe stems upside down...goofy looking and just wrong. Some of the folks selling estate pipes are not even aware enough of their items to know that they have them wrong yet they have the nerve to id the pipe as a "rare" item. I know old topic, but there just seem to be a lot of pics on right now of stems installed upside down

Bullpucky. It’s an affectation designed to say “I don’t know anything about pipes, sold as is, badly described and hiding a terrible flaw.”

There isn’t a stoner alive that doesn’t know which way a pipe stem fits. It’s prevarication.

I had the same thoughts....it is crazy that a stem on a bent billiard is mounted upside down.

I just figured that it is like those numbnuts that can't quite operate a ball cap:

I agree, but it is kind of sweet that his girlfriend let him wear her bracelet.
