Stogie Tip: Have a Happy Cigar Halloween

31 Oct 2007

Last year we published a list of 15 Halloween costumes that could incorporate smoking your favorite cigar.

This year we’ve expanded the list to 20, more than a few of which could be pulled together before you celebrate Halloween tonight:

1. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Whether you’re going as The Governator or one of his gun-toting movie characters, a big cigar won’t look out of place.

2. Michael Jordan. Now in retirement, the greatest basketball player ever never hits the links without a Macanudo.

3. Groucho Marx. Sure, it’s a little dated, but this American icon loved his stogies.

4. Ulysses S. Grant. Some historians say the super-sized prez smoked around 20 cigars a day.

5. Mark Twain. Speaking of the cigar smokers of yesteryear, how about America’s best known cigar-smoking author?

6. Kramer. Just try not to burn down Suzan’s log cabin, or use any racial slurs.

7. Scarface. He was Tony Montana. The world will remember him by another name…

8. Bill Clinton. The former President (and future possible first lady?) got into quite a bit of trouble with his cigars.

9. Monica Lewinsky. (See eight.)

10. Sigmund Freud. Do you think the cigar-smoking neurologist was into cigars because he was envious of his father’s you-know-what?

11. Jesse Ventura. I’d recommend going as his Blain character from Predator. (Note: Jesse is the second future governor from this cast. Did someone say Carl Weathers in 2006?)

12. Hot cigar girl. Enough said.

13. Winston Churchill. Leading (and smoking) England through World War II, this prime minister is by far the manliest British dude ever. By far.

14. Clint Eastwood. Step one: Grab a six-shooter, a cowboy hat, and a Backwoods cigar. Step two: Go kill some Indians.

15. A cigar store Indian. Watch out for Clint Eastwoods.

16. A cigar-chomping communist dictator. Any Pinko Commie like Fidel Castro, Kim Jong Il, or Che Guevara will do.

Tony Soprano smoking a cigar17. The Babe. Maybe the greatest slugger in baseball history, Babe Ruth was known for his love of food, drink, and cigars.

18. Tony Soprano. We may never know what happened after “Don’t Stop Believing” stopped playing, but we do know that this mafia boss smoked a cigar in almost every episode of The Sopranos.

19. Al Capone. If we’re talking mafia bosses, why not be the original? Capone was known for his enjoyment of cigars, booze, and women. Just don’t get syphilis.

20. A Cigar. Sure smoking a cigar while being dressed as a cigar may seem weirdly cannibalistic, but what better way to show your love for stogies?

Got any costume ideas that we missed? Don’t be shy about letting us know your stogie costume in the comments.

    How could you leave off Chuck Norris! The only way this list exists is because Chuck Norris let's you have a website. 🙂

    Let's not forget George Burns either!

    Don't forget Col. John "Hannibal" Smith from the A-Team!

    I'm also considering going out as comic character Dr. Will Magnus, a great obscure choice for the pipe smokers in the crowd.
