Because people who smoke totally legal tobacco out of pipes are frequently too lazy and disoriented to leave the table and get one, Zang's ceramic mugs and bowls actually double as smoking devices, all handmade by a NM sculptor who believes you shouldn't have to "compromise your comfort by searching for your pipe when sitting down to a relaxing breakfast, lunch, or dinner". Of course, cutting down on constantly hitting said pipe could help you remember where you put it, too. Anyway, the goods:
Pipemugs: Avail in a handful of one-of-a-kind single- or multi-colored glazes, their interconnected mouthpiece/bowl/carb setups are variously built into hollowed-out handles and rims, so you can "feel at ease knowing there's no cross-contamination between your smoke and your favorite drink". Sorry, Dude Who Drinks His Bong Water to Get Extra High!
Pipebowls: With a hollowed-out lip beneath the rim functioning as the smoking apparatus, the pipebowl is perfect for cereal, pasta, and salad, 'cause the people buying these things clearly aren't getting enough greens.
In about a month he plans to restock waterpipes built into Virgin Mary statuettes, unveil a Jesus-shaped version, and release a run of "Pistol Pipes", a helpful item for anyone too lazy and disoriented to get a regular job, but can at least remember where the bank is.
