    I bought a copper ChoreBoy at the Lil Bear and the checkout clerk went do get it out of the locked cigarett case. I asked why they kept them locked up and she told me the crackheads steal them if they don't. What are the crackheads using them for, screens or do they get some kind of chemical reaction that makes the high better? I really do lead a pretty tame life BTW.

    They probably use them to remove fingerprints from the dryer sheets...

    They use a wad of it for a screen in a crackpipe.

    copper choreboy

    Somehow I'm not thinking its to get lead fouling out of a barrel
    But it sounds like they could use a 12 bore crackpipe:evil:

    Scratchy copper is good for removing fouling and lead from revolver cylinder bores and barrel throats.

    Somewhat related, the pot-heads used to steal the stainless faucet screens for their bowl pipes from the harware stores where I used to live...:scrutiny: Crazy pot-heads

    Yep, it's for a screen for a crack pipe...

    All the stores in this area have an open box of these by the register:cuss: . Now do you guys see why I usually carry(in my car, not on my person:) ) my PDW/AR-15 pistol!? Crackheads got the strength of ten men, the Glock .40 might just make'em mad:uhoh:...lol

    PS-I an serious about the chore boy boxes though:(.

    Yes screens, and any type of screens, for faucets as have been mentioned those are really popular I. Never had any experience dealing with crack heads but pot heads also love to use sockets as the bowl.

    I don't think I've ever seen a copper chore boy.

    I'm imagining those copper pads that I use to scrub pots and pans.

    I have a friend who's whole family smokes(he doesn't) and they don't have a single screen left on any of their faucets, he told me they didn't last a week after they moved in.

    It might be an old urban legend...

    In high school our shop teacher gave us the standard lecture of "no pipes, bongs, or billy clubs are to be made here" and mentioned something about people getting toxic levels of copper in their system from using pipes made of copper. I've heard of sink screens being used for pipes, but wonder if the copper mesh would be harmful? I'm pretty sure crackheads really wouldn't care either way.

    dollar store

    I just picked up a couple at my local dollar store. I forget if they were 2/a buck or a dollar a piece. They did a good job of getting gunk of of the floor behind the frig and stove (I was helping the wife clean for the holidays).

    Crackheads use the Chore Boy because it holds the residue better than a screen, so they can get more hits off of a rock. Funny that when I started in the drug work, I had no idea what Chore Boy was. I was raised with Brillo pads and sponges.

    When I was a kid, some of us made a bong that used a .30-06 with the head cut off for the bowl...

    Headline from next week:

    "Copper Chore Boys will now be available only by prescription. President says 'It is for the children.'"

    I want them to use a brillo pad. I want them all contorted and blue. :)

    They should hand out only crack and heroin and as MUCH as possible. I'm serious, these poor deprived people need it bad and in job lots. Hell lets distribute 2 million metric tons.

    Yea, Darwin was right, stupid dies tonight.
