Wait... You mean that "hipster" doesn't mean having ample hips? Geez. And here I've mistakenly thought that I was a hipster! :lol:

For anyone else wondering what just transpired in the last couple posts.. Don't feel bad. I am 35 and grew up with computers.. I have no idea what that is. We got a couple late stage millennials on our hands here.. :D
I am not on IG either. I am not sure if that makes you feel better or worse.
I just learned what IG is, and in the last few pages have learned more about it and twitter than I could have imagined. Still every bit as confused. Also, aren't millenials in their 40's or something?

On topic I would consider paying upwards of $40 for a brand new faithfully reproduced Corndog. They could charge $75 or whatever their reverse calabash things go for and easily sell out regardless.

I'll +1 that.
OR - for only $50 plus shipping you can have not just one, but THREE bamboo shank cob pipes.

Why was Ahab so hard for Moby Dick?
It's the white whale.

For me personally, the bulldog shapes represent the Apex of MM's engineering and manufacturing, from a time where the market allowed for a less labor-efficient product.

Even pro cob modders have not yet been able to reproduce a viable, sellable corndog.

Oh and also as of last night those were not listed on the website. So a phone call / email is most likely required. I stole the pictures from a guy I follow that was on the factory tour yesterday
