Obama refuses to light up, fans name cigar after him
Washington: US President Barack Obama has spawned a host of commercial spin-offs from t-shirts and headbands to toilet seat covers But now here's one that may make the former chain smoker himself see red.
It's a line of cigars manufactured in Nicaragua for an US based company.
The company has shipped 20,000 Obama Presidential Series 44 cigars into the US after Obama's historic win.
It's already a hit among smokers. Though the President himself might not try it, having given up smoking on his wife's insistence, he may see red in the fact that his fans have been smoking away a tobacco product named after him.
