Add another item to the list of things climate change will kill! But this one makes me a little gleeful.

NPR reports that “corn cob pipes have made a comeback in recent years” (which, what?), but now higher temperatures and drought are severely cutting into the supply of this “natural product.”

The country’s one last mass producer of the pipes, Missouri Meerschaum Company, is suffering from a serious lack of decent corn cobs to fashion into $10 cancer-depositing machines for your lungs.

It’s probably fitting that drought could kill the corn cob pipe, though — after all, it’s also taking out tobacco crops (with a little help from hurricanes). Uh, thanks, climate change?
