And, on TurkeyDay -1 and BlackFriday -2, join us in lighting up a
pipe, or a cigar (or both!) as Robert Whitehead says:

Subject: Mixing pipes and cigars

Greetings, fellow pipesmokers;

Back 'way long years ago, when I was in my Senior year of college, I
had a professor who did something I've never seen done before or
since with a pipe:

He smoked a cigar in it!

He'd take his cigar and light it, then put it butt-first into his
pipe and smoke it.

I can only surmise that he smoked nothing _but_ cigars in this pipe.
I can imagine what smoking a cigar in an already-broken-in pipe
might do to the flavor of the pipe; I'm sure it would destroy the
carbon cake.

Now, in addition to my pipes, I occasionally enjoy a good cigar.  I
often buy several cigars fresh, then store them in the freezer until
I'm ready to indulge.  Not long ago, I bought a high-bowled
Meerschaum-lined pipe with which I am not terribly pleased, and I
don't smoke it much.  Well, an idea has struck me:  I'm considering
trying what my old Prof did and smoking a cigar in this
less-than-satisfactory pipe, hoping that the Meerschaum lining will
temper the cigar smoke as it does my regular blend.

Has anyone else had any experience with this technique?  How did you
enjoy it?  If I start doing this regularly, should I use this pipe
for nothing else.
