Default "Hemp" Wax?

Several weeks ago I needed to replace a toilet bowl that had not been winterized properly and had cracked.
After removing the old bowl and before replacing the new bowl, I needed to scrape off the old wax seal which was of a real sticky consistency and got me thinking, bagpipe tenons?
Soo..., for those of you that are seriously into recycling, keep your eyes peeled for washroom renovation work in your area and old toilet bowls left at the kerbside.

Hmm... Good Sense... whispers in my ear... that
I should not touch this... even with a bayonet tied
to the end... of a logging pole!!... :)

But be-Deviled as I am... with the sense of humor
that I was given... I cannot avoid this observation:

Perhaps... the use of this used material... by some...
might improve... the odor... of their playing... :)
(Oh, groan... :)

I use cobblers wax on the end to secure it to the tenon, then beeswax, and a little of the toilet wax seal for the final finish.

If Covid 19 won't stop you playing someone else's pipes (!), I reckon that should do it. Maybe that was your idea in the first place by putting it out there. Mine are sanitised, not sanitary bowled. Garry F.
