The other night when I was channel surfing, I happened onto a show about cigars. Well, that led to curiosity when they mentioned ring sizes of cigars. Did they use the same ring sizing that jewelers do?
Nope. Cigars are measured by cigar ring sizes, with each ring size being slightly larger.
Here is the largest.

Now, picture a cigar with that diameter.
I’m thinking it would take two hands to raise that thing, let alone sit there and smoke it. How long would it take to light that sucker – and how ardent a smoker would you have to be to keep it lit? From what I understand, cigars go out quickly, unlike cigarettes that keep burning.
In one of my more adventurous moments, I took a few puffs of a cigar. That’s all, and it wasn’t particularly memorable.
How about you? Ever smoke a cigar? Know anyone who smokes a really big one?
