- "A balanced pipe, a stable marriage!" We've all heard this one. If you can balance your lit pipe atop your head during your vows (this has been interpreted to mean while the pipe smoker is reciting his or her vows rather than all vows during the ceremony) your marriage will be as stable as a manger. Fact! This particular superstition (as some might like to call it) has been tested 78 times according to the records in the OomVault beneath the OomPalace.
