    I'll admit my bias, but I believe they're the best breed ever.

    This actually isn't that odd of a question, if you ask me. I have a strange affection for the act of smoking as well as tobacco itself.

    Pastor Charlie, have you looked at this thread? FNG/FOG You get to sample a bunch of stuff in trade for one tin. I was thinking about you comment of not liking necessarily liking the "taste of tobacco". I got thinking about comments I have read in other threads about people "liking the taste of tobacco" (usually in response to not liking aromatics). It occurs to me that I don't "know" what tobacco tastes like. That sounds really silly, but English blends, burleys, Virginias, cigars, and cigarettes all taste so different to me. Sometimes I can pick out certain kinds of leaf in a blend, but I would say that "tobacco" tastes like so many different things that I could not point out one flavor and say that was "tobacco". Maybe it's just like herbs. Basil and Oregano are both herbs, but they don't taste the same. There is no reason you have to be a pipe smoker, but if you try some different stuff you might find something you really like. Lot's of guys here like Virginias and Burleys, I just don't get them....

    Thanks for the good tip. I have checked out the post you mentioned and it looks intriguing. I know what it means but what exactly does fog and fng stand for? Thanks again for your reply!

    Good question. I know that the OG in FOG is "old guy" and that the NG in FNG is "new guy". I asked someone else today what the F stood for. I was given a non-answer "what ever you want". Could be "friendly"... could be a word not repeatable here.... I truly have no idea, but I think that the spirit of the thread should trump the terminology.
