    Default A pipe for smoking

    I'm just a little mixed up.
    Are these terms different?
    1) Hubble bubble
    2) Shisha
    3) Hooka
    If different, could you please clarify?

    Did you try looking these terms up in a dictionary?

    Edit: Perhaps you did, but were stumped because hookah is not spelled correctly...

    Shisha is the term I hear used in the UK. Hookah is used in Sherlock Holmes and Alice in Wonderland, but less now. I haven't heard people using hubble bubble much.
