    How brain-dead do you have to be to bid on something like this?

    Anyone who pays that kind of money for that thing deserves it!

    If at first you don't succeed you are running about average.

    What does it even have to do with a pipe?

    "There's a sucker born every minute.".....

    I agree...

    Mason jars and bale top jars, mason jars and bale top jars.... that is all!

    From reading the description I got the impression that it was a briar rescue. It opens beer and the price of saving a nice carving from the fireplace is noble.
    That's the best I can do off the top of my head.

    Does that look like briar to anyone ? Just looks like some tree limb he cut in the backyard. I got the impression the seller doesn't know what briar is, except that its what pipes are made out of.
