PA in a Pug.
I would really like to blame generation Z (late millennials)for hipsterism, but it seems to have occurred before they were old enough to really participate. I do think they have grasped to it a lot more than Y, since there are far more of Y that still identify with the values of the previous X. What I can say is that Gen Y and Z seem to be victims of not having a lot of the same things to worry about that previous generations did(real war and the aftermath). I have concluded that since they can't derive national identity from a sort of shared experience(tragedy tends to form community and social closeness).. they feel the need to seek some identity for themselves in the far fringes of individuality. Literally like grandma used to say, "Idle hands are the devil's tools", really rings true. But I digress.. this bowl of PA is really hitting the spot, and I am sitting here watching a thunderstorm roll in and enjoying the hell out of it.
You must be really fun at parties. Lol
You assume that I have real life friends that would invite me to a party. :lol: Seriously though.. Couple shots of Tequila and I am dancing on the table in a tube top.

And ya just can't unsee that. :shock:

Whoever came up with the design of the Yello-Bole Spartan was a genius. A a wide round bowl in a square whatever-you-call-the-outside-of-the-bowl, the bowl and the part-that-comes-off-the-bowl are cast in purest American polished brylon. It is dark walnut brylon. Its edges gleam like a jewels'.

I've been admiring this pipe's construction and performance for the whole month of August 2019. Right now, I'm enjoying a bowl of SWRA in it. The Yello-Bole Spartan delivers a cool, consistent smoke, as promised and as predicted.

As any wise old pipe smoker will tell you, "All brylon wants to do is be your best friend,"
