Tandem Smoker

Introduced in 1955: Jonathon Law's Tandem Smoker, aka the "sure-fire lonesomeness ender."

"The inventor envisions each lonely man packing a Tandem Smoker. All he has to do is light up, offer a passerby a mouthpiece, and the device will do the rest."

And you too could soon be smoking in tandem, because there's one available for $95 on eBay.

I had a similar device when I was younger. It did all that this item was advertised to do. The only problem was spilling the water it contained on the carpet of our rented apartment.

I used to have a bong that was based on this principle.

Just plunk your hookah down in a wheelbarrow, walk down the street, and and you can even collect a whole group.

I'm pretty sure I saw this as a joke invention in an old Mad Magazine.
