Because cigars cannot be entirely smoked, a hobo who collects cigar butts can make a cigar to smoke out of every 5 butts that he finds. Today, he has collected 25 cigar butts. How many cigars will he be able to smoke?
Did you know? Cigar Smoking was more common than ciarette smoking in the 19th century. The Cigar Factories employed many people to roll the cigars by hand before mechanized manufacturing was intruduced.
As a matter of prestige and quality, some cigars are still rolled by hand. Some Cuban cigar boxes bear the phrase 'totalmente a mano' (totally by hand). Cigars must be properly stored after production in a specialized wooden box, also called a cigar humidor, to prevent it from drying out. Dry cigars can gradually be re-humidified again, but the loss of origanal oils in the tobacco will affect the taste.
