    This is a Bumblebee pipe made for smoking hash oil. It was a collaboration piece between Banjo (fun fact: I used to own a Banjo stemless bubbler many moons ago!) and Bluegrass Man. As beautifully crafted as it is, pieces like this always give me the heebie jeebies. Amazing, ... / Continue →

    I know it may look like a homemade Fruit by the Foot fort, but those are actually strings of firecrackers. 320,000 crackers to be precise. And this is a video of them being detonated as a memorial service to a deceased family member while neighbors drive by calling the police... / Continue →

    Seen here already looking like an addict, a woman "whaffs" a lemon tart. Wait -- what? That's right folks: huffable food. I can see it now. "Yes, we'll like the steak au poivre paired with a full-bodied red spraypaint. And for dessert -- the airplane glue." At first, my m... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the lovechild of a simian and the lesser GW, some kid went and made himself an XBox controller pipe. I assume this image was captured as he snuck out of his basement abode for a hit right before his mommy called him to Thanksgiving dinner so he'd be suff... / Continue →

    In big tobacco's attempt to appeal to our (well, your) children without the use of a hip, anthropomorphic camel with a shlong the size of a fire hose, here's some LEGO cigarettes. Impressive, but could you imagine actually smoking those? I can, but only because I used to huff... / Continue →

    This is a hookah somebody made out of an old computer case. Why'd you want to do that is beyond me, but I've given up on understanding why people do things. Except peeing outside, I totally get that. It's like, you're one with Mother Nature, you know? Almost like she's hold... / Continue →

    20-year old Acea Shomaker is a failure at life who shouldn't even be allowed to have a cat. I mean Jesus, just look at that bong. Pathetic. Deputies discovered the cat trapped in the device after responding to a domestic disturbance call at a home that Schomaker shares with ... / Continue →

    Well Crown 7 is at it again, this time with a new smokeless cigarette, the Hydro ($80). What's so hydro about it eludes me, but it has something to do with water vapor. Anyway, like their other models, the device delivers nicotine but no smoke or carcinogens and is sadly not ... / Continue →
