Garçon à la pipe?

July 13th, 2008 · 143 comments

This masterpiece is a gift from the collection of Zedral (Morgantown, West Virginia, 2008). The original installation also includes a trail of small arrows pointing customers toward the register, along with multiple post-it reiterations along the way.

For the love of God...Please GO as in get in line at the register if you want a pipe. DO NOTE whistle, clap, snap your finger, mumble "hey you" or anything else you would do to a dog. Come and get us at the cash register.

      I actually think that’s the tape that is holding the sign down. Sure looks like someone jizzed on her chin, though.

    Depending on what kind of pipe it is, ppl get antsy waiting in line. They want it NOW! Especially if it’s the Super Blunt behind her shoulder….

      Super Blunts aren’t technically pipes, they are wraps. So , I guess you can actually whistle and yell out ” Yo Bitch, let me get a wrap!” from across the store.

    If you just whistle or clap
    Or arrogantly wait there and snap
    Your finger (just one?
    sounds painful), undone
    Will your pipe sale remain, lazy sap.

    If you want pipes then you should
    Not do anything that you would
    If we were canine.
    Instead get in line
    At the register. Is that understood?

      Every head shop in Columbus has signs warning you that any reference to illegal drugs or illegal smoking hardware will result in your immediate dismissal from the store.

      That makes it really hard to ask important questions like how difficult it is to scrape resin out of the pipe to get that desperation hit when you’re 12 hours from getting paid.

      Stolen wholesale from Weird Al (with apologies to Coolio):

      As I walk through the valley where I harvest my grain
      I take a look at my wife and realize shes very plain
      But thats just perfect for an amish like me
      You know I shun fancy things like electricity
      At 4:30 in the morning Im milkin cows
      Jebediah feeds the chickens and jacob plows… fool
      And Ive been milkin and plowin so long that
      Even ezekiel thinks that my mind is gone
      Im a man of the land, Im into discipline
      Got a Bible in my hand and a beard on my chin
      But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine
      Then tonight were gonna party like its 1699

      We been spending most our lives
      Living in an amish paradise
      Ive churned butter once or twice
      Living in an amish paradise
      Its hard work and sacrifice
      Living in an amish paradise
      We sell quilts at a discount price
      Living in an amish paradise

      A local boy kicked me in the butt last week
      I just smiled at him and I turned the other cheek
      I really dont care, in fact I wish him well
      cause Ill be laughing my head off when hes burning in hell
      But I aint never punched a tourist even if he deserved it
      An amish with a tude?
      You know thats unheard of
      I never wear buttons but I got a cool hat
      And my homies agree
      I really look good in black… fool
      If you come to visit, youll be bored to tears
      We havent even paid the phone bill in 300 years
      But we aint really quaint, so please dont point and stare
      Were just technologically impaired

      Theres no phone, no lights, no motorcar
      Not a single luxury
      Like robinson caruso
      Its as primitive as can be

      We been spending most our lives
      Living in an amish paradise
      Were just plain and simple guys
      Living in an amish paradise
      Theres no time for sin and vice
      Living in an amish paradise
      We dont fight, we all play nice
      Living in an amish paradise

      Hitchin up the buggy, churnin lots of butter
      Raised a barn on monday, soon Ill raise anutter
      Think youre really righteous?
      Think youre pure in heart?
      Well, I know Im a million time as humble as thou art
      Im the pious guy the little amlettes wanna be like
      On my knees day and night scorin points for the afterlife
      So dont be vain and dont be whiny
      Or else, my brother, I might have to get medieval on your heinie

      We been spending most our lives
      Living in an amish paradise
      Were all crazy mennonites
      Living in an amish paradise
      Theres no cops or traffic lights
      Living in an amish paradise
      But youd probably think it bites
      Living in an amish paradise

      Ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh

    Knowing what I do about Morgantown, home of West Virginia University…the only university with an accredited Masters of Couch burning program, I have to admit that I would be tempted to post a similar sign. True, it would be more direct but I would ultimately resist that temptation because I would realize that this is a head shop in the dumbest part of one of the dumbest states in the Union. Even if the patrons can read, they won’t bother.

    Do you suppose if Harold and Kumar had been from Morgantown they would have been jonesing for Tudor’s Biscuit World rather than White Castle?

    Well of course they’re gonna need PA signs and trails of arrows. It’s a West Virginia head shop!

    BTW, evidently West Virginia has the largest white supremacist compound in the country. And considering what I’ve seen in my short drive through WV on the way to Virginia years back, I’m not surprised.

      However – if we send PA signs, chances are that they won’t be able to read them without help from their cousins. And that’s iffy. NASCAR may be on the tee-vee.

      As for trails of arrows, most of them point to the outhouse out back so they can find their way in the dark. Dayglow, you know.

      As as to burning something down – I’ll light up their boxer shorts before I have them in for coffee.

    I found myself wondering whether your typical head shop employee or seattle barista was more likely to be rude and apathetic to their customers. Then I realized that the rude baristas are probably the head shop customers and it got way too meta and confused me.

    But I get the feeling that Morris Day or Eddie Murphy frequents this place, sweeping in with a small entourage and wearing a fur-lined leather coat. They just stand there and snap, “Yo bitch, run over here and get me my pipe…where my pipe?!? And where my bitches at too?!?’

    This sign isn’t in a head shop, it’s a convenience store that happens to sell pipes as well. Seeing as how it services a very high number of WVU students, the people working the register are dealing with customers paying for their beer/munchies/whatever.

    Standing by the cases the pipes are in isn’t a sure-fire way to get someone working there to come and help you, so they’re asking people to wait in line for help getting a pipe from out of the cases. Is it really that fucking hard to understand?

    God, you people who insult West Virginia and say we’re the stupid ones need to pull your heads out of your asses. Do you know how many people I’ve told that I am from West Virginia, only to have them assume I mean the western part of the state of Virginia? Learn some fucking geography about the country you live in, hypocrites.
