Back in the late 1970s, Pablo 'El Patron' Escobar was pumping almost $500 million worth of cocaine into the United States every week. Americans were hitting the slopes. Hard. And they were demanding the best equipment to cut through the fresh powder (sorry, this metaphor stops now). 

As a result, the merchandise market became big business, meaning popular magazines were littered with ads for high-end accessories. If you were going to disintegrate your septum in a condo on Miami Beach, you might as well do it with an ivory straw.

A grotty line off the cistern in a Wetherspoons toilet this is not. Big shout out to The World's Best Ever for the find.
