Recon Cigars in 25mm Phalanx Anti-Aircraft Casing Tubes

The extravagantly named J. Giovanni Baquerizo’s [above right] hoping to make a living selling premium cigars hand-rolled in Nicaragua, encased in replicas of 25mm Phalanx anti-aircraft shells. Thanks to the SOPA protest, I can’t link to the wikipedia entry for the system, a last ditch naval defense that throws up a curtain of lead to shred airplanes and missiles while nearby sailors prepare to kiss their butts goodbye. Somehow I don’t think anyone reading this post really cares. But I bet there are members of our Armed Intelligentsia who’ll be more excited by the pic of Recon’s big ass cigar box after the jump than the pic above. Prove me wrong . . .
