- The making of a Witch's Foot pipe involves the use of eye of newt. Fiction! Eye of newt went out of style years before the Witch's Foot pipe shape gained in popularity. Eye of newt is often confused with toe of frog (very similar in color and shape) which is used instead.

- The old adage "No disease or stripe with Witch's Foot pipe." alludes to the healing powers thought to come from the Witch's Foot pipe. Fact! The term "stripe" here refers to infections causing red "streaking" or "striping."
