Tiparillo cigars

I never thought something as vile and nauseous as the smell of cigar smoke could be associated with something so attractive as these brightly-colored illustrations of European-style villages on the packages of Tiparillo cigars from the early 1980s. There's this guy in our building who smokes mad cigars every couple of days and that stomach-turning stench seeps into our office. Whatever floats your boat dude. Maybe he's smoking circa-1980 Tiparillos?

Hey Mike! I found it funny that you showed this today. I was cleaning out old boxes of stuff from school last weekend and I found our "aboxa" project. you were on that team with me, weren't you? I don't think our packaging was quite as hot at these, though...
