We use ph in phone because of etymology.

We use f for funnel because we are sane.

Hipsters use ph for funnel because they failed english and think they are cool for it.
This is just as annoying to me as people who self title each other "basha" when smoking on their "Quh-lyle May-Moons". Its a Turkish title either given to you or your ancestor but never self applied. When it is used socially, someone else calls you that, out of respect. (Sorry for that mini-rant. I hate hookah hipsters with a passion.)

When hookah stops being a fad, I'll be happy again.

I highly doubt the hookah "fad" is going away anytime soon. Many people see it as an alternative to the shit they catch for smoking cigarettes.

I don't know very many people who go "You're a bad person for smoking hookah" but plenty of the same people who find hookah perfectly acceptable feel that cigarettes make you satan incarnate.

Simple. Spelling something with a "ph" just makes it cooler & trendier.

If I say "that's fat!"... then I'm refering to weight & body size.

If I say "That's Phat, dawg!" then I'm referring to it being cool & trendy.

So, nice going with calling it Phunnel!

I'm going to say it.

In my head, the anti hookah stuff that has been going around has really left 2 roads to go with.

One of them will stop lots of people, including hipsters, from wanting to smoke it, so at least I can smoke and find peace.

The other is too depressing to discuss.

Think about this though.

Without all those smoking hipsters, less tobacco would be sold, meaning fewer shops would be here and the tobacco would either be non-present or old.... or more expensive.

So at least there's SOME good that came out of it...

I've always been confused because on almost all the websites where funnels are sold they are spelled phunnel. Anyway, hopefully my girlfriend will be getting me one for my birthday this friday ive always been really excited to try one ever since i saw them.

do you guys even know real hipsters?

no hipster says phat...nor do they spell anything with ph. come to silver lake in los angeles and ask them for yourself. its the mecca for hipsters and i dont see anything you mention pertaining to them. most of them dont know much about hookahs (if anything at all) nor have any idea what phunnel bowls are lol.

I've owned 2 real funnel bowls and a Chinese funnel bowl I sold or traded all of them away. So you are not the only one Bob.

I also do not own a phunnel. Vortex all the way!

However, given my distaste for the phunnel bowl is because of the small chinese phunnel a bought a long time ago. I planb on pickign up a small Tangiers Phunnel at some point.


Also, PL, all the dumb college hipster kids i know of smoke SB and Fantasia. But that is probably because that is all the local shops sell....


Lastly, i call is a Phunnel bowl because that is what they are marketed as. I honestly think people are just being dumb when they get their panties all up in a bunch over this stuff. And it isnt like a phunnel bowl is anything like a real funney anyway...

To me this falls into the same category of people who spell magic with a "ck" at the end. Gotta love metaplasmus.
