I came across this image this morning while enjoying my favorite French roast and a bowl of Eric Nording's Fox Hound and had to chuckle. I've never seen nor heard of such an invention and wondered 'What's the point?"
Seeing that it is pipe related I figured why not post it.
The caption that accompanied the photo follows:
Dual piping existed for reasons virtually unknown (one article suggested it was for use in sporting events, others say it was for conserving tobacco), but what we do know is that it looked awfully silly. The photograph above is likely an exaggeration of the complications of this practice, but it’s certainly a hint as to the awkward nature of the pipe for two.
