Nancy: I hate to see anything go to waste.
Nice of Nancy to recycle…
My dad actually did this with one of his cigars when I was a kid. However (luckily for the snowman) he made sure it was all the way out, first.
Next frame: the cigar explodes and blows the snowman’s head off!!
LOL! Just for a brief moment….I thought dat Nancy was take a puff…lol
I’m surprised that this particular strip wasn’t censored for showing the dreaded tobacco and smoking.
You can tell that guy is rich from the top hat and the fur collar and the fact that he tossed a mostly unsmoked cigar.
So Nancy take place in Atlantic City. Mr. Pennybags lives there.
Ah back in the days when the idle rich and the poor interacted.
Poor snowman… now his lungs are going to melt!
Years ago, there was a Tobacconist in New Haven, Connecticut that brought an interesting cigar to the cigar marketplace.
The Tobacconist named the cigar Muniemaker and given the times being the mid-20th century it probably was a purchase choice when tobacco smoking was quite popular.
A check on the name from the internet claims the cigar remains on the market and is often given praise for being created from excellent tobacco leaf, and is very affordable.
