Here’s a little Friday fun to kick start the weekend. Check out a few of our favorite cigar smoking fictional characters:
Cosmo Kramer: Kramer’s love of cigars is just as much a part of his character as his unkempt hair, vintage clothes, and crazy antics. One memorable cigar smoking moment is when Kramer lights his cigar on the stove setting his hair on fire.
Sherlock Holmes: Sherlock Holmes was hardly ever seen without a tobacco pipe, cigar, or cigarette perched between his lips. As Watson described him in The Musggrave Ritual, “[He] keeps his cigars in the coal-scuttle, his tobacco in the toe end of a Persian slipper, and his unanswered correspondence transfixed by a jack-knife into the very centre of his wooden mantelpiece.” Holmes is an expert in the study of tobacco ash and often uses it as clues to help solve his cases.
Homer Simpson: Homer has been known to enjoy a cigar or two from the Kwik-E-Mart. We don’t recommend falling asleep on the couch with a cigar in hand. “Marge, turn down the heat….That’s better.” D’oh!
Wolverine: Wolverine from the Marvel comic X-Men is a mutant known for his retracting claws, healing factor, awesome sideburns, and, last but not least, his love for cigars. We’ve heard that Wolverine prefers Cohiba cigars, but he will smoke any cigars that he can get his hands, er claws, around.
Tony Montana: It may be sacrilegious to write a cigar blog discussing the most famous fictional cigar smokers without mentioning Scarface, so Tony Montana rounds out our top 5 picks. In between becoming a drug cartel kingpin, firing assault rifles, and rising to the top of Miami’s cocaine empire, Tony Montana always makes time to light up one of Cuba’s finest cigars.
