This new Ron Howard flick SHOULD have some references to pipe smoking, but I don't see any in the preview.

Pipe smokers and the odd pipe shop are all over the place in the original Curious George books by H.A. Rey.

Rey himself was an inveterate pipe smoker so I guess he liked to put a bit of himself in those books. Having a 4 year old son at home I have an omnibus of the original works that I read to him a lot. As I read them to him I play my own version of "Where's Waldo?" but it is "Where is the pipesmoker?". Among the illustrations featuring sailors, policemen, zoo-keepers and other sorts that George encounters there is always one of them with a pipe. Not only that, the shapes range from bents to straights with varying bowl shapes. Clearly his wife, the illustrator, was familiar with his pipe collection.

One of my favorite lines in the first book: "After a good meal and a good pipe, George enjoyed a nice sleep."

Don't we all.

Don't know how to link it but in a Washington Times article on my Kindle that came out regarding Fred Thompson's death the first picture was him smoking a pipe.  The pic looked like it was from the 70's around the time he made his name in Watergate.

Here's my contribution.  This is from my favourite comic, Eagle which featured Dan Dare Pilot of the Future.  It was very popular here in Blighty from 1950 - 67.  It was re-released in the mid 80s which, apart from my dad's stories of him reading the originals, was my only exposure to this 'paper for boys'.  Pictured is Dan Dare himself, probably drawn by Frank Hampson the genius who illustrated most of the original series.  Anyway, nice billiard Dan.

I have one a few years more recent. I don't watch the show personally, so I'm not sure if it's pop culture or not.

Top Gear! Probably the most successful show on the planet. Very entertaining if you're into that sort of thing. Clarkson is a bit of a bounder though and was thrown off the show by the BBC earlier this year.

But Jeremy, Richard, and James are making a new show to be available on Amazon. I can't wait!

Back on topic,

One of the main characters in the BBC show "Peaky Blinders" (it's on Netflix) smokes a pipe. Also, in the movie the Explendables, Mikey Rorke's character smokes a pipe as well.

I know there are a couple more that I have seen recently, but I can't think of them right now.

Ellen Page got pregnant AND smoked a pipe in Juno, which proves she's a very versatile actress.....

I didn't like guy in peaky blinders. And everybody smoked pipes back then, surprisingly few in the show though imho

Might watch it someday, but I won't pay a cent to see one of his movies.   :evil:

why's that, herm?

I don't know. Fox News as a source? No, but really. I heard the direct quote, and its context, and then a conversation between Tarantino and Maher on Real Time with Bill Maher this week about it. Suffice to say, he's calling a murder a murder. He wasn't calling all cops murderers. The point was about murder, not cops. Feel free to watch the discussion for yourself: https://youtu.be/xDHJADECk7s

Fargo, season 2, episode 7, "Did You Do This? No, You Did It!"

The matriarch (Floyd, Jean Smart), while in for police questioning, pulled out a blasted Peterson 309 and poorly packed it and struggled to keep it lit, match after match. It was a funny twist for the character and scene.

I watched a film over the Christmas break called The Riddle of the Sands, starring Michael York and Simon McCorkindale. These two fine chaps were yachtsman who, whilst exploring the German coast in 1901, foil a German plot to land barges on the East coast of Blighty in order to invade the UK.

Davies (McCorkindale) as a previous non smoker is gifted what looks to be a Petersen early on in the film and from that point onwards he's rarely seen without it.

A dreamy film of stiff upper lip in the face of adversity, on an old school sailing adventure, with enough pipeage to satisfy most BoBers.

Recommended!
