Zippos suck when you have to light the bong.

Supposedly if you want to air drop a mule in combat and they don't want to leave the plane, you lift the tail. hold a Zippo up under there and light up the Zippo. The mule becomes instantly cooperative and exits the plane.

I have a Tobacco Master with the big wood bowl, used a zippo for years. The bowl was so lopsided from the zippo flame that I hadto replace it. twice. Now I just use the metal pull through and change the water more often.

I expected this to be about Pinterest.

I know we're late to the party here in AL, but I've had 10 rich moms in the last month hire me to set up Pinterest on all their mobile devices, no shiat..

Z-Plus makes a really awesome butane insert that fits perfectly into a Zippo case.

Yeah that windproof thing sets them head and shoulders above the lighters that you buy and throw away.

I fondly remember blowing off 2/3rds of my pinkie using my grandpas WWII Zippo lighter. Damn short fuse on a M80 I, blame it on my older brother.

I bought it from a comic book store back in 2001.

That's one reason the company last year launched a series of Zippo-branded products - from watches, to leisure clothing to cologne

Meh. Tried some once, it smelled terrible, and I think I'm allergic to it because it gave me a hell of a rash:

They are not useful for smoking crack or bong hits.

For me, part of the deal was the aroma of Ronsonol lighter fluid. Guess I could have been a huffer with a little effort.

WTH people, Zippo has an extensive line of Pipe lighters that will ignite your bongs and crack pipes like a pro. Pretend it's your birthday and treat yourself.

/more dead rock stars are found with a Bic in their hand or pocket, sorry Zippo.

Someone, somewhere, has my lighter engraved with

"TRUST NO ONE"

/left it on a dock in Sasebo, when I went back to retrieve it, it, and the pack of smokes under it, were gone.
//stupid sailor!

That slogan proved prophetic.

My last name is Zizzo, over many generations of Zizzos, our common nickname through the years has always been Zippo. When my Dad was in the Army in Korea in the 50's, they called him Zippo. When my brother was in the Marine Corps in Operation Desert Storm, they called him Zippo, so it was no surprise that my buddies in the Air Force called me Zippo too. Great lighter, great name.

/yes I have a Zippo, the Varga Girl special edition.

I lost one in the enlisted club in NAS Millington, the NCO club at NOB Norfolk, and outside the package store on the Naples Naval base. Alcohol seems to be a common thread here...

I still remember the days when a pocket full of $5 zippos from the ship store were like gold bars in some ports. That, and American made Marlboro reds. American smokes seemed to go over really big in France for some reason...

Half a billion lights, dis Zippo, yes? We make a bet. You strike lighter successfully ten times in a row, and Cadillac is yours.

I read the headline as "Half a billion dicks" and expected the article to be about subby's mom.
