Cubans have some really big ashes… | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

Wow Terry: Thanks for posting those photos. I didn’t know about the competition either. I can imagine how those ashes would feel in your eyes if they suddenly fell off! Are these your photos?

I should add that some of them remind me of ?? Oh – I know the warning on Canadian cigarette packages with the photo of the limping appendage (also called the third leg in my part of Canada).

So many opportunities for a humorous retort that it’s difficult to know where to start – or where it might end! So I’ll just say "thanks Terry for the photos".

Griz: good response! I think you got the picture. I tried to smoke a cigar once in a paladar. The host insisted that my brother try it (Monte Cristo) but he doesn’t smoke. So brother insisted I do it. I tried with 2 puffs and said I’ve had enough – someone else has to finish it. The host laughed and said in Spanish "No Problemo or what a waste of a good cigar. But when I saw Terry’s photo of the female smoking, I did have a good laugh. I just didn’t the ash to go that far!!

Ahh but in the free world you would have every right to NOT be in there, right? And everyone in there inhaling that stuff would be there out of their own free will, would they not?That’s the glory of free, democratic first world countries as opposed to those darn tropical countries without first world democracies where people can’t decide for themselves.

Or is it the other way around? I’m confused, better but out.

I agree. The cigar Festival is a private function. No is forced to attend and if you purchase a ticket, you do so with the understanding that people will be smoking cigars.

Imagine that happening in Ontario with our smoking police???? We are not world class cigar manufacturers, so why would we? On the other hand, we have maple syrup festivals, blueberry festivals, winter carnivals, ect… all things Canadian. Can you imagine the Cubans having a maple syrup festival?

btw – Great post Terry, I had no idea something like this even happened! Me and my ash could never compete!

This is very true, but the "smoking police" police much, MUCH more than private functions. I guess you could argue that smokers could just stay home as well, correct?

If people get their rocks off watching other people smoke cigars, who am I to judge? I’m just grateful that I don’t have to be exposed to the stink in any bars, restaurants, hospitals, planes, buses, etc. at home.  I grew up with two heavy smokers, and I had NO idea how badly I reeked until I moved into my own home, and I’d go back for visits. Wow. Eye opener.
