A Clinton-Era Relic: "Monica's Used Cigars"

Since we're a bit over a month away from the General Election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, I thought it would be fun to bring out a "relic" of the presidency of William Jefferson Clinton.

Back in Clinton's second term, he was caught up in a sex scandal involving a White House intern, Monica Lewinsky, which led to an impeachment trial. It came out during the scandal that President Clinton had made "innovative" uses of cigars. I shall refrain from describing how he used the cigar. (Just take my word for it and use your imagination.) One of Clinton's quotes ("It tastes good!") after Lewinsky was done with the cigar is also on band as is the Clamper motto.

During that time, the incoming Humbug of Platrix Chapter No. 2 of E Clampus Vitus decided that his "Humbug's Gift" to the chapter would be an especially-made cigar. He enlisted the aid of yours truly to come up with a unique cigar band featuring Lewinsky.

So, at the next clamp-out, all attendees were given one of "Monica's Used Cigars". As one can imagine, they were a big hit at the clamp-out!

I managed to save mine took the accompanying photographs of it.

Ah, memories!
