People might think this a bit odd of a posting during the memorial day weekend, but I'm sure that would be the same people who think that it's okay for poor people's children to go off and die stealing oil for the big corporations so that they can pick up their children from school in an SUV.
Well, I was talking on the phone with an old acquaintance. I won't call him a friend anymore since he turned into a bit of a snob and social climber, so I generally do not bother with him and his delusional world of late.
It wasn't long till I hear this monotone voice: "I have a Havana". "That's nice", I responded, and I suspect I asked him "how's the weather ?" Next; "No, er........I have a Havana," in the same irritating monotone.
"What brand is it ?" I asked. "I got it from a friend, er...ah...he got it from a friend, I don't know." "What brand is it", I asked again. ugh! "I have a Havana..."
I really don't know what brand it is either !!!
Well, the claim is that the Cuban soil is so played out that the Dominicans and now the Hondurans are much better. Then as it's Castro's only source of revenue, the quality of AUTHENTIC cubanos is considered to be rather deplorable as of late. And on top of it about 85% of the Cubans sold "legally" in Canada are FAKES.
What's with the Cuban thing ? The mystic ? The criminality ?
Nah! it's about showing off... "he he, I got connections and you don't, he he..."
Obviously, MOST if not ALL the fools are running out and paying $40-$50 a stick for a Honduran with a fake Cuban label on it.
What fools these Gringos Be... fake cigars, fake boobs, fake kulture....
