How many folks remember the eighties fetish with big bowls? Such as this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ascorti-Pipe-/271877515268?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f4d29a804

With the size of the bowl and the comparatively small stem kinda looks like a guy with a huge beer gut and spindly legs in a speedo, no? (Sorry about that imagery.)

Well, guys with huge beer guts and spindly legs are the majority, so I suppose that is why the shape is so popular. You know back in the pipe smoking heyday, they advocated matching the shape of the pipe, to the shape of the pipe smoker. Laughing

The stem and shank are a bit small but remember, it is an Oom Paul shape and they if they are true to form, have large bowls usually. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil I don't have the "spindly leg" problem, instead my "beer gut" is attached to two chunky oak stumps!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
