There were asbestos tobacco pipes as well. It's not like they knew what a shit idea that turned out to be at the time.
Why would you want an asbestos tobacco pipe, leaving aside the fact that it's toxic? Surely the point of a pipe is to be able to catch fire

Friendly reminder that people also thought drinking radioactive water might be a good idea

Absolutely not. The reason why Briar wood is what's most often used is precisely because it doesn't burn easily. But you still have to "break it in".
The tobacco will build up a layer of coal on the wall of the bowl. That will protect the wood from burning and, because it's porous, absorb condensation.

If asbestos hadn't been poisonous, it wouldn't have been fantastic but it would've made for an adequate replacement for Meerschaum, which was the entire idea behind it.
They were made in the DDR, which had basically no access to Briar from Italy or Meerschaum, which comes exclusively from Turkey.

Lots of other woods don't make for good pipes. They either burn too easily, are too soft or give off noxious sap fumes when heated.
Besides Briar there's basically only Olive wood and Bog Oak, both also hard to get in Soviet Germany.

They kinda fucked up when Seymour was not talking about an Austrian dialect.

Not to mention
1) Hindenburg was in fact one of Hitler's biggest enablers and gladly signed his emergency decree
2) Hindenburg was deathly ill by 1933 and probably wouldn't be yelling 'Adolf' like Superintendent Chalmers
3) Hindenburg died in 1934 long before Hitler ever invaded Poland

But, apart from that, good stuff.

Hindenburg didnt "gladly" signed the Enabling Act. He only did it after his own son (who was cahoots with von Pappen and Hitler) convinced him to do so. Hindenburg was an old Prussian aristocrat and never liked "that Bohemian corporal".

He didn't exactly go 'Oy vey, this is the rise of fascism' either, did he? Hindenburg didn't like Hitler personally but, as far as I'm aware, he broadly agreed with most of his policies and there's no record of him fighting with Hitler over policy implementation

Of course they didn't fight over policies, since he and Hitler shared very little time in power (Hitler was nominated chancellor just a few months before Hndenburg kicking the bucket). But Hindenburg was an old aristocratic monarchist, not a card-carrying fascist (unlike his ex-friend Ludendorff, who became a Nazi party member).
