"Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar."
When asked how they destroy seized Cuban cigars, U.S. Customs Agents
(so says the Internet) replied: “We burn them –” (comedic pause) “–
one at a time.” So, here’s another online Cigar (tall?) Tale. A
Charlotte lawyer insured a box of expensive cigars against (inter
alia) fire. Within a month he’d smoked the whole lot. He filed a
claim asserting that the cigars were “lost in a series of small
fires.” Claim denied. Lawyer sued. Judge awarded Lawyer $15,000
because Insurer had never defined “unacceptable fire.” Insurer
paid. But (here’s one for you lawyer haters) justice did prevail:
Lawyer fined $1,000 for each of 24 counts of arson and insurance
fraud and sentenced to 24 months in jail.
