    On top of this, does anyone know the history behind cigar store indians???? What's the deal with them?

    The cigar store indian is a long forgotten lore and some will argue it's true abundance in the world of Tobacciana...

    The most popular theory is that Jebediah Crotchenfeld in the early 1800s was an early inventor of the hand-crank Chainsaw...

    Due to the "New World" being settled in the americas and Jebediah's HATRED of native americans he contracted out a wood carver of Handtools to create a mighty image of the Native American in which Mr. Crotchenfeld was to disgrace the Natives in a mighty demonstration of his White Man Tool the hand crank chainsaw...

    Unfortunately the Hand crank Chainsaw had one flaw, the Hand-Crank part... Crotchenfeld was not able to create enought torque on the blades to truly destroy the wooden statue and all he could do was to use the weight of the chainsaw to break the spear held in the wooden indian's hand... the handle was leather bound and when the wood went cracking off it shredded the leather and what was left was an Indian that looked like it was holding Tobacco... Thus the beginning of the wooden cigar store indian...


    Now, the spear was a memento to disgrace Crotchenfeld so they plastered the broken weapon atop Jebediah's roof... and in one drunken night Jebediah climbed upon his roof to break down the shameful idol and fell off impaling himself on the one thing he hated most... (also this is where we get the word "Crotch" from as well)

    A little history dropped on your ass!!!
