Not sure what to make of this thread considering the shapes in my collection...
Really large pipes are smoked by folks who have no other way to feel noticed, except perhaps by making a show of their industriousness in some other activity nobody cares about. They always felt like they didn't matter. They are either physically extra-large, or below average, but not 'small' per se, as that would have gotten them noticed.
Every pipe shape always indicates that the smoker has deep-seated fixations rooted in both oral and phallic stages of development.
A cigar, however, is sometimes just a cigar.
(Just to nip this in the bud: the last line has not been verified as an actual quote by the good Dr. Freud.)
...sturdy, truculent, determined individual who makes a good living running his own business but is a little tone deaf about human relations. He thinks he knows the right car to own and the right thing to have for breakfast, and thinks anyone who does otherwise is somewhat deficient.
A person who prefers churchwardens, wears a cape and has a sword or battle ax hanging somewhere in their house.
