I have seen people with e-cigarettes frequently in the past few months. The styling of the devices generally look like regular cigarettes. A few look bigger and stranger, almost like miniature hookahs. It got me thinking that we could be entering a new fad. In a few years, we might see the pipe making a comeback.
Pipes used to be very fashionable. Famous people had their unique pipes. Even fictional characters like Popeye and Sherlock Holmes were usually portrayed with a corncob or elegant pipe.
