ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Kaywoodie Pipes - DFH gift set. You're welcome.
Boy, I haven’t thought of the Smilin’ Face of Bob Dobbs in 20 years. Thanks, Cory.
BEWARE OF FALSE “BOBS”!
Like cigars, I thought you weren’t supposed to inhale with tobacco pipes.
What’s the point of smoking if you don’t inhale?
I inhaled my pipe for ten years (20 years ago).
That cutout, sirs, is not Bob! Quite possibly that is the Anti-Bob or one of his minion. Look at the fear of exposure in his eyes and the lame attempt at a confident smile. Clearly this is an attempt of the Slackless to corrupt the one true church.
Here’s my attempt at inverse-halftoning the man…
This is why I love Boing Boing.
Gosh, what’s wrong with you guys?? You mean to tell me, you’ve ALL forgotten that the true “Bob” always has his name in quotes?!? ;)
Blessed Bob, full of grace,
grant me slack,
so I may slow my pace.
-abs worships at the Head of Bob, and believes all unbelievers should give him their slack….
My guess is this is a tribute or a ripp of from the Bas Kist Lino cut portrait of his friend M.C. Escher done in the 1920’s – see p20 M.C. Escher his life and complete graphic work. Abrade 1981.
I was a pipe smoker for years. To this day I can’t even see a pipe without an intense craving to light up and inhale deeply.
