People who smoke cigars are assholes

This is a post that I will probably regret before the end of the day. In fact, I will probably walk in the front door to Kelley smoking one. She doesn't care what I call her. Besides, she might even agree with me on this one.

I probably should just point you to the Cigar Aficianado website and stop writing, because it's true that a picture is worth a thousand words.

Is there any public act that is more obnoxious than cigar smoking? With cigarettes, at least, there is the act of inhaling, where the smoker's lungs filter out some of the stink and poison. But people don't inhale cigar smoke. They just let the foul smell sit in their mouths for a while before releasing the fumes for the rest of us to choke on.

Keep telling yourself you look this good when you're smoking a cigar.

In New York it's illegal to smoke in any business except for licensed cigar lounges. I pass one on a regular basis on Broad Street. As I walk by, I cringe at the sight of fat men with pink faces and white hair sitting on leather chairs enjoining their cigars as the stock market up the street crashes and burns.

I'm not willing to say that everyone who smokes a cigar is an asshole, but I am willing to say that everyone who smokes a cigar is an asshole while he is smoking it.

I would have strongly disagreed with you 8 to 9 years ago before I nearly set myself on fire passing out with a big fatty lit in my mouth. Since that wake up call, I descided cigars weren't a good match for me. Although I still really enjoy the smell of them...lit or unlit. At least the cigar smoke smell will over take the stench of urine and rotting rodents that predominately lace the streets of that poisoned city you call home. I'm just kidding...or am I?

WTF??? Why would someone light up & smoke a cigar?

I buy cigars by the box but I don't smoke them. I use them like my boy Billy Clinton!

I'm working on the thickcrust voodoo doll to be on sale at walmarts across the country.

I'll make you pay for not putting my link up.

I like your negotiation style. At 12:53 you ask that I put a link to your blog. At 12:56 you threaten me with voodoo-based retaliation for not meeting your demands.
