Clipper Elite


#1

Disposable/semi-disposable lighter chat space.

We discussed zippos the other day but I guess there are other non-disposable ones. Ever owned one of those that is a cross between a lighter and a paperweight?

Anyway, I guess the Clipper Elite was/is(?) the greatest semi-disposable lighter.

Got any lighter chat? Anecdotes? Strong opinions?

Struck a match this year?

?

Most days. The ignition on our gas hob doesn’t work.

Will soon be an #inductionwanker though, which will change everything.

prefer the bic mini lighter tbh

although the removable flint in a clipper was good for poking down the end of rolled items


#6

Very much so


#7

Found a dinky/ smaller than usual clipper on the floor of the pub patio last night. I gave it to the smokers I cadged a fag from

I remember being very impressed by a friend’s butane lighter once


#8

Are the butane ones that have the blue flame like a jet fighter?


#9

Yes


#10

I used little swan vestas to light a fire last night. That’s it. That’s the story.


#11

My grandad found one of them (I assume it was one of them, burned with a really intense blue fame) on a walk once, I guessed it was mainly used for drugs (cooking up on a spoon or something?)


#12

bic regulars for me, clive.

cliippers are a mugs game.


#13

Clipper > cricket > bic imo


#14

Just remembered how stressful it was trying to keep hold of a favoured lighter. Always people trying to nick them. ‘Oh sorry, I forgot mate’. FUCK OFF!


#15

Extremely relatable


#16

Might try to sell it to @ma0sm for his standup. Just needs to put some jokes around it.


#17

What did you call the removable flint part of a clipper? My crew called it the ‘guts’


#18

Q: why did the chicken cross the road?
A: to steal your favourite lighter!!! FUCK OFF CHICKEN YOU SHIT CUNT


#19

I only remember one guy calling it a pokey-jabber. I don’t see him anymore.


#20

I can see why. What did you call it?
