I live in the North of England with my family and an imaginary dog named Geoffrey.

I only eat marshmallows with cabbage and cheese because the people stole my kidney. And the moon fell out with me after a misunderstanding about a frog.

Nipples.

My name is Pete

About half my pipes are meerschaums but I do have a few corn cobs, some clays and about half a dozen briars. Others include:

A beautiful & simple handcarved ebony pipe which a friend brought me back from Mozambique.

A calabash with ceramic insert, just for the over-the-top look of the thing.

Just bought a Falcon International w/meerschaum lined bowl. These are amazing smokers and I urge everyone to buy one. Their looks are not as controversial as the original Falcons either.

plus a few other odds and ends.

More often than not though I just roll up a ball of tobacco and set fire to it in the palm of my hand, breathing in the smoke through my left ear and absorbing the tar through my skin.

Hairy NIPPLES.
