Best Smokes: You'll Love Our Butts
True story. I built a tobacco store for Steve Zevon several years ago. It was a brand-new store and we had to fight the building inspectors to get it open. When it finally DID open, I put down my carpenter belt and manned the cash register until help could be hired.
Business was slow those first few days, and I spent the time making posters for the naked windows. One was a depiction of the Doonsbury charactor "Mr.Butts"...a talking cigarette...and below it the caption "You'll Love Our Butts!"
Steve had a great sense of humor and kept the sign in place. Many months...maybe a couple of years...later, I saw his weekly advertisements in the local paper. "You'll Love our butts!" was the official slogan.
One day after being away from the store for many months I stopped in to buy some cigars. I asked the cashier how Steve was doing. Her jaw dropped and she said"Not too well: he died yesterday."
This uncanny synchronicity assured I would make it to his funeral, which I did.
Best Smokes is still in business, doing what Steve had wanted it to do: providing his family with consistant income.
Sunshine sits on the newly-laid carpet, in front of the humidore I built.

Banjo music and compliments about "purdy lips" in the same sentence frighten me.
(It might be "mouth" instead of "teeth", but I'm gettin' this canoe OUTTA HERE PRONTO!)
