Today in History...
In 1878 John F. Blondel was awarded a patent for his Corncob Pipe. Blondel was looking for a simpler and inexpensive way to smoke his tobacco so he hollowed out a dried out corncob, attached a small wooden tube and puffed away.
If it wasn't for Blondel and his pipe, the fellow above would look a lot different!
