The Mad Bomber strikes again.



Jackal surprised me with a cigar bomb that fragmented into 17 pieces. Pic 1 is the suspicious package. Pic 2 shows the damage done.

Extra credit goes to Jason for making the "Manifest Destiny" reference. I can't find the post right now, but I made the comment that I considered it my manifest destiny to try every cigar out there...

Most of these are new to me--as a matter of fact, I've only had two of these in the exact size you sent--the RP Connecticut and the Don Lino Africa Duma (at least that's what size I think it is).


Thanks again, Jason.

did anyone get that I saw trying to photograph the cigars as though they were casualties of a bombing...?

No?

I was going to throw in a "Oh, the humanity!"

I wanted to broaden Corey's horizons by giving him an assortment that ranges from I what I think is pretty good to those that I consider not so good, with a lot in the middle.

A number of these are value smokes. Enjoy them, and maybe you will find a hidden gem among the mix.

For the record they are:
Rocky Patel Connecticut Torpedo, Bahia Blu U700, Helix X550 Maduro, Superiores Robusto, Oliveros classic torpedo, Boardwalk Pyramides, Doc Holliday Gunslinger, Puros Indios special aged Piradimde, Puros Indios reserva maxima 2003 presidente, Arturo Fuente curly head, La Diferencia Cubana Churchill, Don Lino Africa Duma, Gurkha Castle Hall corona, Partagas Spanish Rosado St Augustine, Nestor Mirranda Special Selection lancero, La Cuna Bin 85 Churchill, Vega Talanga Corojo Blanca Presidente.

That is a generous bomb. I like the idea of unloading not so good smokes on someone who has expressed an interest in trying them.

Did anyone get what I was going for with that second photo? You know, the horrific news photos of mass bombing victims laid out on dark plastic tarps...



Man, maybe that kind of humor isn't for everyone... and maybe I should have just left well enough alone.

If I had any Photoshop skills, I would have gone with my other plan, which was to put Jason's and my face on the poster for the movie The Jackal...
