Check out this cute elephant pipe found at Hamtramck's Rock 'n' Roll Liquor Store



Sure, a lot of liquor stores sell colorful glass pipes (for tobacco smoking only, obviously!), but few sell pipes as cute as this little elephant we found among the curios at Hamtramck's Conant-Caniff Market (aka "The Rock 'n' Roll Liquor Store"). We fell in love as soon as we spotted him, and the $20 price tag made this purchase a no-brainer. You smoke out of his trunk, and the carb — aka that hole that you hold down and release as you inhale — is his butt. How cute is that? Plus, the elephant's round body makes for a deep bowl — you can pack a lot of tobacco in here.
