PostSubject: ANONYMOUS drops the nuke!   Wed Sep 19, 2012 7:41 pm

Maybe I'm just the kind of guy that other guys don't bomb. And that's fine, I've got a lot of blends and gear and briars and such around the corral here. More stuff than I need or will likely use. And I would always prefer that guys just starting out get the goods cause it just makes so much more sense. But til now, I don't think I ever really been hit really hard.

But if there's such a thing a karma, I guess it finally caught up to me as I just got hit BIG TIME. Hit out of the blue with something I truely think is amazing, on SO many levels. Nuke level strike...with something I think is arguably the finest of it's kind, far over and above by miles and miles...and that I deeply lusted after with very little hope of it ever being realized...until today when someone from this site did something unthinkable, unforgetable and which of course is quite undeserved.

The photo below isn't the exact item, I'll eventually replace it with real ones. But a verbal description wouldn't even come close to doing it justice.

So...behold...the generosity of someone among you, misplaced, but accepted with stunned humility.

That had to have been a collaborative effort which means we have a few people in on the "anonymous" conspiracy. Glad you got the pipe you wanted brother, you are definitely deserving. Smoke it with pride and joy. This place truly is a Brotherhood.


Why the hell didn't anyone let me in on this one??? Wish I could take some of the credit for that BH, you definitely deserve it.

Does that mean you are in on some others? Shocked I know you can't have done me, but some of the others? Or am I being paranoid?

It sounds like these bombings have you paranoid brother. I have been worried that I'd get hit, but not even BH has my actual address over here so I am safe. I assure you I am not in on the bombings, though I wish I was, especially with the paranoia it is causing. Twisted Evil Only people I have sent to I have identified myself (Rob and Monbla, which they posted about). Sorry to disappoint, but this is one I wish I had been involved in.

I'm flabbergasted. I was sure I had nailed down who anonymous was....now I'm not so sure.

WHO ARE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!


BH, that is an awesome gift for a great guy. You do so much around here that I cannot think of anyone more deserving of the BOB POY than you. Smoke in good health my friend.

cheers cheers cheers

Darn!!!!!! Holy Crap!!!!!

Now that's what I call a NUKE! Congrats, Commander.



Maybe one of these days I can add the 2012 BoB POY to my stable, but it sure isn't now. I'm with Kaiser, I wish I could've been in on this one.

Thanks, all and sundry! I'm still flyin' on the 'briar high'.



Differences do exist, and I think that future POY's will look more like mine, which is similar to the one shown below...more than to the #1 pipe that Brewdude got. Mine has the non-rusticated briar shank running all the way round...and the crest of the bowl is a shade taller, more rounded, and is evenly covered with an amazing, well, what I call 'flame grain'...which may or may not be. I'll try to get some shots up tomorrow, but below...the one on the right of course, is more what this one resembles...and the color (if it's not just the temp difference of my laptop's monitor, is much more reddish than what I see here or on Mark's site:

DAY-UMM!

Looks like karma finally came round for you Dave. And it couldn't happen to a better brother.

And no it wasn't me....


Cool



Cheers,

I don't care what color it is - that is one heck of a pipe!

Yes Brother - you do deserve it. We all appreciate what you do around here. Someone (or some group) went way above and beyond though.

That's definitely a keeper.

Best anonymous bomb yet...where are these coming from? It's like there's some anonymous bombing cartel operating in the back alleys of the BoB community!

Like some kind of 'secret society'...some kind of Briar Ninjas! Striking in the dark of night...silent and deadly. Gulp!



Of course, if captured, they smoke whatever blends they had brought for the attack. Hmmm. Not a bad gig, all in all.




But glad to be on their good side nonetheless.

Now that is outstanding!! Congrats brother, you deserve to be bombed in such a manner. You do a lot of work for this place, carry a lot of concern, couldn't happen to a better guy cheers

And no, I had nothing to do with it, aside from designing the pipe. I do look forward to hearing how these babys smoke.

Just to let you know...I have already inaugurated the bowl with a 2/3 load of Patton's Oriental Dusk (a great favorite). It performed as well or even better than other highly favored briars already well broken in. This was quite a surprise. Patton's blends are quite dry compared to most others and I think this helped in the fact that it burned clean and dry all the way to the bottom. Also, the briar inside the bowl is barely discolored. Good stuff, to be sure.

I think we'll have to refer to him as 'the Duke'.


Duke Nukem, that is!
