I enjoy reading from the Chicken Soup series, which of course is a collection of heart warming stories targeted at specific audiences like teens and parents.

I was wondering if there is a collection of similar stories out there for cigar smokers? This came to mind this weekend when I spent time with a dear friend of mine who is just plain having a rough go of it. I fumbled around trying to find the right words of encouragement but nothing seemed to work. Finally I offered him a handfull of La Corona PC's and he light up like a Christmas Tree. Nothing in his world had changed, but while he puffed away on the first stick it seemed that for a moment, all was well.

Are there any other Chicken Soup stories out there?

Lamar, I heartwarmed by your story, and I guess you could say that tha is the first Cigar Smoke for the Soul story I have ever read. I am willing to find more and post them up if I can. I love those stories too. Let me see if I can conjure up any stories from my Cigar experiences in life. I know that cigars have seemed to always be the thing that brings my closest friends that much closer.

I will get back to this forumn on that story. Maybe we can make our own collection eh Lamar?

Not Heartwarming...but funny

Only in America!

A Charlotte, North Carolina man, having purchased a case of very rare, very expensive cigars, insured them against ...get this... fire.

Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of fabulous cigars, and having yet to make a single premium payment on the policy, the man filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the man stated that he had lost the cigars in a "series of small fires."

The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason that the man had consumed the cigars in a normal fashion. The man sued... and won. In delivering his ruling, the judge stated that since the man held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable, and also guaranteed that it would insure the cigars against fire, without defining what it considered to be "unacceptable fire," it was obligated to compensate the insured for his loss.

Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the judge's ruling and paid the man $15,000 for the rare cigars he lost in "the fires."

After the man cashed his check, however, the insureance company had him arrested ... on 24 counts of arson. With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used as evidence against him, the man was convicted of intentionally burning the rare cigars and sentenced to 24 consecutive one year terms.
