*true story about Cigars*

    true? maybe .. . maybe not .. .
    ----------------------------

    A Charlotte, NC, lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive
    cigars,
    then insured them against fire among other things.

    Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great
    cigars
    and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the
    policy,
    the lawyer filed claim against the insurance company.

    In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost "in a series of
    small
    fires." The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious
    reason:
    that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.

    The lawyer sued...and won!

    In delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company
    that
    the claim was frivolous. The Judge stated, nevertheless, that the
    lawyer
    held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the
    cigars
    were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against
    fire,
    without defining what is considered to be unacceptable fire, and was
    obligated to pay the claim.

    Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance
    company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000.00 to the lawyer for his
    loss
    of the rare cigars lost in the "fires."

    NOW FOR THE BEST PART... After the lawyer cashed the check, the
    insurance
    company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!!

    With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case
    being
    used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning
    his
    insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a
    $24,000.00
    fine.

    This is a true story and was the 1st place winner in the recent
    Criminal
    Lawyers Award Contest.

    ONLY IN AMERICA!!! NO WONDER THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES THINK WE'RE NUTS!!

    I love hearing about people who try to pull a fast one and get jerked around themselves.

    another true story about cigars, a few freinds and i were smoking chronic and i lit up a cigar. i lit the wrong end, so i gave it to my freind and told him to smoke it. I put the lit end in his mouth and he tried to smoke it. He then exhaled when nothing came out and never acknowledged the burning sensation the cigar should have gave him. Mines not as cool as yours.
