Huh? American Spirit actually costs a bit more than "regular" cigarettes. They smoke well too.

Um, no. American Spirit were the cheapest cigarettes we sold. Even cheaper than Basics.


EDIT: By the way, maybe it had something to do with our markup. Maybe we had a lower markup on cigarettes we never moved so that we don't have 8 year old packs sitting on our counters. I think I sold 2 packs of American Spirit over the course of a year.

EDIT EDIT: There, I think I finally got it right after editing 7 times.

Wow, American Spirits are $5.50 to $6.50 here, as opposed to Marb/Camel which cost $3.25-$4.00 a pack.

On second thoughts, buy the young turk a Meerschaum pipe and a kilo of shag and let him get on with it.

I knew smokes were cheaper south of the 49th, but never really clicked in until now. Here in Alberta, they are $10.25 I believe (don't smoke).

My Dear Mr Wang,

One is most appreciative of your encomia and indeed hopes future correspondence, or 'posts', are as well received as this 'thread' appears to have been. I trust the various words posted herein have been well received, and indeed, heeded, by like-minded chaps.

In the mean time I can tentatively advise that my off-spring, for whose benefit I was seeking popular wisdom, has assumed a flâneur's posture and can be encountered most mornings of the week 'hanging around' the village square, as I like to call it, trying to appear raffish and alluring to the numerous local popsies innocently going about their day.

Yours etc,

Smith

Mr. Smith,

Tell your son what my Daddy told me. "Go ahead and smoke all ya want, but one day you're going to have to quit.."

Did'nt know what he meant till recently.

Quitings a bitch.

Mr. Smith, your choice of words and speech are interesting and much appreciated, as for odoreater, he's an insolent, as he seems to attack whoever he can with smart-ass remarks and doesn't seem to provide anything constructive

Too bad he didn't start with something really nasty. My first and only cigarette was a Balkan Sobranie (black paper, gold-leaf covered filter). Someone in my dorm used them and I figured that if I acquired a new vice it should be a high-class one.

I lasted halfway through one cigarette. Didn't get sick, but it tasted pretty foul. Also took about half the night to get the taste out of my mouth.

I am still grateful.

Those Russian style cigarettes are an "advanced cigarette". Sort of like taking a stick of pot then subsequently delving into snorts of horse and needles of cocaine.
