Gay Guy Turns His Nose at Stinky Trend?

Straight Guy,

You are very observant of cultural trends, so I'm here for your wisdom.

Did I miss the announcement that cigars are back?

I saw/smelled two or three guys this week smoking cigars, then at least three just today. One, or two sightings is interesting; getting close to half a dozen is a trend. The only common thread I could discern is that the guys today were shoveling snow off their cars and sidewalks. Does cigar stench make the shoveling go faster?

If cigar smoking is back, then it certainly falls into the straight guy domain. Sure, gay men still smoke, but I don't recall any of my gay brethren doing it for more than a few seconds of dramatic affect.

Readers, any stogies in your daily travels lately, or is this just another Gay Guy fluke?

And, readers, forgive SG and me for being light on posts recently. Work has been fast and furious for the dynamic duo of GG/SG. We're whipped. But, we are working on recharging ourselves. Keep in touch!

--Gay Guy

I know guys who smoke cigars, but they are all older gentlemen or my redneck friends. Don't know if it's trending back or not, as these people have always smoked them. Damn stinky things!!

I think they've been back for years, but probably not in either of your circles. Mostly rich folk (sorry) - Bill Cosby, Rush Limbaugh, celebrity chefs.

Shoveling = cigar smoking because their wives/ partners won't let them smoke 'em in the house.

I've always preferred the smell of cigars to cigarettes - don't know why.

As a follow up news blip: I spent last weekend in South Florida. The cigar (even the cigarette) is living a full and reach life there. Is it the Cuban influence?
