Coming at ya! It's Blowin' Smoke #88!
Once again, from the Havana Room along with Chief Mourning Wood, your Freako de Fuma assembled the Cretins for another excursion into herf excellence. The Cigar of the Day is the AVO Limited Edition Companero, a cigar made to celebrate the birthday of Avo Uvezian. You know, the guy with the hat.
We share a couple listener emails with you along with an op-ed from what the government would call a "displaced worker" displaced by the government...at the Hava Tampa factory in Florida. Plus, some stories you have to hear to believe that might gross you out. Actually two of them are sort of related. Also 5 Things and a new Minute with Travis.
So, grab your favorite cigar and join the herf! It's Blowin' Smoke #88.
LIVE from the 4th annual Cigar Barbecue at Slippery Rock Cigars in Slippery Rock, PA, it's Blowin' Smoke #89! What a great time we had with a ton of delicious food, lots of drinks, countless cigars and a truly superb crowd. For the show, we whipped out a Mystery Cigar of the Day for the Cretins to review and enjoyed talking to Vinny from Sir Vin Cigars and our good friends Pedro and Pedro Gonzalez of Don Gonzalez Cigars. We also enjoyed a new 5 Things and Minute with Travis. Special thanks to all our fantastic sponsors too. If you weren't at the Cigar Barbecue, you missed a great time. Lucky for you, we've got a small taste of it right here for you on Blowin' Smoke #89. So, grab your burger and weenie, light up a fine cigar, and enjoy the show!
Hence embedded in the divine and righteous Man Chair with a Padilla Habano robusto in hand and a Diet Coke to my left, I am tasked with introducing you to this new segment found only on BlowinSmokePodcast.com called "From the Man Chair"...to give you a little taste of what to expect in the weeks and months to come.
When my full figured posterior parks itself in the Man Chair with a fine cigar, all that matters is what I think. From the Man Chair, I am in my Archie Bunker chair in my house playing by my rules...until the wife gets home. From the Man Chair, mine is the only opinion that matters. From the Man Chair, I am free to pontificate and proscribe at will. From the Man Chair, grandstanding is the national past time. You get the picture, right?
Now, before we go any further, we should lay down some Man Chair rules. These rules are always subject to modification, addition or deletion, that's right, From the Man Chair.
Rule #1 - Respect the Man Chair.
Rule #2 - When in doubt, see Rule #1.
Rule #3 - Only the rightful owner of the Man Chair may claim its powers unless a temporary substitute is duly chosen by said rightful owner.
Rule #4 - The Man Chair shall not be overturned, overruled, or appealed except as welcomed by the Man Chair.
Rule #5 - The Man Chair can be bribed.
Rule #6 - The Man Chair will deny Rule #5.
What's next? Only the Man Chair knows. We might be discussing the finer points of micro-brews one day and the rubbernecking of the Jon & Kate + clown car vagina the next.
It might get ugly. It might be weird. It might be exactly what we need. Stay tuned.
