Pipes making a comeback

The Wall Street Journal reported today that pipes are making a comeback on college campuses. And, no, not THAT kind of pipe--the old-fashioned kind that actually has tobacco in the bowl.

There is a Facebook page, the Collegiate Gentlemen's Pipe Smoking League, that boasts over 1,500 members. And today, of all days, is International Pipe-Smoking Day.

So, celebrate all you closet pipe smokers or ex-smokers. It's time to bring back the old prank telephone call to tobacco stores and drugstores:

Caller - "Do you have Prince Albert in a can?"
Answer - "Yes."
Caller - "Well, shouldn't you let him out!?"

Yuk, yuk...nothing like 1960's humor.
