Whenever I am dissatisfied with a pipe, it gets banished to a drawer if they are not flat out defect. Then it's the bin.

Tonight I opened the drawer to take a look at a Peterson system pipe with a p-lip stem that I can't stand the feel of. I think I might try to convert the p-lip into a fishtail. And there I saw this: A little Parker bent with a nice blast, light as a feather and a comfortable mouthpiece, but with gurgling issues. I thought I'd try and see if the 8-10 months since its excommunication had improved my smoking skills enough to avoid the gurgling, and Hallelujah!

And this happened just as I was coming to the painful realization that I need more bent pipes to clench. Well, here's one :puffpipe:

That looks like a perfect clencher for sure. I'm glad that time in solitary confinement excommunicated the demons.

Nice pipe! I think 8-10 months was plenty of time for it to reflect on poor behavior. I’m glad it shaped up!

I have a compact Parker bent poker and it's alway been a good little cooker. I'm not mainly an English pipe guy, but I like to keep a few around. Never any gurgling problems.

"Whatcha in here for, Rhodie?"
"Misdemeanor gurgling."
:rofl: Or how about this one...
"what are you in here for, bulldog?"
"They say my drilling is a bit off."
...The other pipes slowly back away to the other side of the drawer.

Gurgling Churchwarden sounds like one of those impossible yoga poses...
I think that one's called "Yo-Da-Lin in the Valley." :wink:
