Kaywoodie Pipes - DFH gift set. You're welcome.
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….
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.
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.
Boy, I haven’t thought of the Smilin’ Face of Bob Dobbs in 20 years. Thanks, Cory.
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?!? ;)
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.
BEWARE OF FALSE “BOBS”!
