Default Re: What does it all mean!? Hookah, Shisha, Maassel, Tobamel, Narghile?

Great post Hajo! Lots more information there!

I know how you feel about "shisha" being used to describe tobacco .. so that is why I say "tobacco" lol instead of shisha. But it doesn't bother me if other people call it shisha, I know what they mean. Again it is just one of those American terms that we have adopted to describe maassel.

You know, now that I think of it! I bet it got adopted because it was being called "shisha tobacco" and eventually people got lazy and just started saying "shisha". I would be willing to bet that is how it got adopted here in the US.
