What, no Diplomat?
It's my favorite.

Today.
Darn you. Now I have to go all the way upstairs and dig out a Diplomat that hasn't been smoked in a while.

The power of suggestion is strong with you.

Nothing surprising here...billiards and bulldogs.

That could be a song title.

And no apple?
What is life without an Apple?

A diminutive Apple. Subtle. Discrete.
My favorite shape.

Today.
It’s a lovat variant. Just vote lovat.
Oh, so now you wanna go all Rusty on me! Get your gloves on.
A Lovat is a Billiard variant.

An apple is an apple.

Dunhill calls it a saddle stem Apple. Johnny Appleseed calls it an Apple.
I think GOOSE calls it an apple!

Plato called it an Apple.

GOD calls it an Apple!
It's what Eve gave to Adam. He smoked it, and we were screwed, but at least he had a good smoke.

Next thing you'll tell me a bent Bulldog is a Rhodesian.
Is nothing sacred?

Besides, I've already moved on to another favorite.
I'm smoking a Diplomat today. More Ready Rubbed.

Goose's pipe has been added.
And I am glad of heart to see that someone other than I voted this is their favorite shape!

In my view, it's about as perfect of a pipe as there can be. 1-inch diameter chamber, 2 - 1/8 inches deep, it holds a boatload of tobacco.
