Wonder why anybody would stack a flue liner like this on top of the one lining the brick column.  There was no code need for height here.  There appeared to be some mortar but I would not lean a ladder against this thing.

we have seen that pretty often.  heights and wind direction is only reason I can think of.  I suppose there is a hundred rules why not, but if it works, what is real implication?

No height prob by far here, but hearth was sealed off on inspection day...thinking of a sweep maybe wanting to lean a ladder there to look.  I didn't.

So I have to ask about the title of this thread.... Cause I don't get it....

It's a phrase meaning something was either more effort than it's worth or doing more than necessary.

I've only heard it in the South and it was a nickel.

When I first heard it was a penny.  Heard it at Army basic training in Ft Knox, Ky.

It was done to make it draw better.

No wonder the hearth was covered - that stack is taking on water and they never figured out it was due to the cracked and almost non-existent crown (If you can call it that).
