Ya know, this is just a case of a plugged cigar. And boy did we try hard. It was poked and prodded more than, well, use your imagination. Stogie Santa would not give up, and at one point I watched him cut the cigar in half and try to smoke it. Then, moments later, he finally laid it to rest in the bottom of the ashtray with a look of disappointment on his face (and it was my cigar to begin with! Well, originally it was Mark Jr’s). Folks, these things happen. Its okay to try, sometimes it pays off as you will see this week, other times you just gotta cut your losses. Cuban cigars will do that, not the best construction, and not much you can do about it either. Maybe we can slice them open, separate the tobacco, and roll our own cigars out of them :)
