Episode #184 - LIVE from the Havana Room

Recorded: 2013-07-13
Cigar of the Day: CAO Hurricane

  It's a tobacco trade show weekend in Las Vegas, and the Cretins are herfin' in the Havana Room a couple thousand miles away for Blowin' Smoke 184!

With a brand new Cigar of the Day and cold Yuengling, who needs that drunken mega-herf in Vegas? Well, we do, quite frankly...but since we don't have the right creds or deep enough pockets, we'll tough it out and rely on our friends on the ground for some insider access by proxy. Our friends Chris Kelly of Leaf Lovers and Crossfire Cigars, AND Fred Rewey of Nomad Cigar Company check in from the show in Vegas with two difference perspectives on the event...a retailer and a brand owner / exhibitor. Plus, breaking news from the show prompts another live report from the scene. Who's on first?

Even with all that top notch trade show info, we still managed to deliver the rest of the goods with listener email, a funny major media fail in the face of a tragedy, equine lovin' again, a porto-potty-peeper, and more...including a new report on what the chicks are reading, and a new 5 Things.

So, start puffin' your favorite new limited availability special reserve select pre-release cigar and sippin' your favorite beverage for Blowin' Smoke #184!

From the Man Chair - BREAKING: Prince Geraldo Names His Weiner

Posted: 2013-07-23

  Hence embedded in the divine and righteous Man Chair with a 262 Revere burning (it is #262sday afterall) and my eyes rolling at the latest surge of sludge that we apparently find important...or not so important as the case may be.

If you were anxious to learn the name of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's baby, you're an idiot.

If you were more anxious to learn the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's spawn, you should be throat punched. Further, if you think their chosen name of "North" is cool, you need more therapy than baby North is destined for. That therapy will, no doubt, find its way to the E channel in the form of a reality show called "North to Celexa."

Over the weekend, we were all scarred for life when aging "journalist" Geraldo Rivera decided it would be a good idea to tweet a selfie of his nude Geraldoness with a bathroom sink covering his Al Capone. Isn't he the guy that investigates and reports on public or prominent figures who do the same kind of shit with the underlying question being whether or not their judgement, or lack thereof, makes them fit for office or position? But there he was all naked with the caption that 70 is the new 50. No. Seventy is the new prescription for eye bleach and a fifth of Jack Daniels. Put some clothes on and STFU, Gerry...please.

Speaking of Geraldo's junk, yet another turd has floated back up to the surface as "formerly" disgraced former congressman and current NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admits that new photos and online sex chat transcripts are, indeed, his. Apparently in his district, this kind of sexual mental illness is a resume enhancer because he is doing very well in the polls. I don't know who the bigger asshole is...his wife, or his constituency. This guy isn't qualified to wash dishes, and his continued empowerment by the failure of people to run him out of town on a rail means they will share fault if his sexual urges lead to somebody getting hurt. Anthony's Weiner should be on NY's do not call list forever.

And finally, the Royals. Now, I will be the first to admit that Kate whatsherface is a gorgeous young lady. Beyond that, I don't give a crap. It is a shame that she will be thrown under the Buckingham bus eventually, but the hyperventilation over her giving birth to the third in line for a crown that doesn't mean shit...except a tax bill for the subjects, I don't get. My only hope is that somehow she manages to live as normal a life as possible under the circumstances. A tall order. Honestly, I am a little more excited at the idea of her very hot sister, Pippa Middleton, moving to the United States and not following the "royal" code of conduct. I don't mean that in a Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes kinda way, but rather a tell it like it is kinda way. I'm not holding my breath.

So, if any of this stuff is of any importance to you beyond thumbing through a "People" magazine while waiting for a root canal, please do the country a favor and don't vote. Thank you.

...and that's the way I see it...From the Man Chair.
