* Discussed by Music/BillBailey on ''Series/{{QI}}'', who observes that a tradesman who's puffing on a pipe looks much more knowledgeable and trustworthy than one who's taking drags on an InstantDogend. Became something of a RunningGag, with Bill Bailey pretending to have a pipe to invoke this trope. Taken to its logical extreme when, in the episode "Green" in Series G, he brought in an ''actual'' pipe and pretended to smoke it.
