Holy Bloody Nora! So, I'm walking towards my front porch from the driveway and can't help but notice this giant crack has occurred in the 45 minutes I was gone. As I approach, I see faint hints of what appears to be steam, or fog. I look down and among a small array of other letters and parcels, is a small puffy envelope with what appears to be a human thumb still attached.

I carefully take the thing into the house and inspect it. I reach into the closet, groping for the blast mask and SCBA gear and cautiously open it. To my horror, this is what I beheld (cob and corona added for dimension):

Yup, an intact tin of Gawith's legendary VA Flake.

Then, things suddenly got really weird. As I went to remove the items, which were posed atop a speaker for picher takin', I was nearly knocked over by this little tid-bit:

For those who are math-challenged, that's nearly FIVE FREAKIN' YEARS OLD! And, that's just when JEFF got it!! God only knows when Sammy-G decided to make and package it. For those unfamiliar with my pipe cellar (of which I am too), this is seriously old tobacco for me!

Let us know how it smokes, I have a tin (need to recheck for any dates on it...) and I just might consider waiting the full 5years as well...

Thanks for the kiss Don!

Seriously, it's just one rotten tin of tobacco, way past the expiration date anyway.

Sort of in the same way that a Jaguar XK-120 is just an old car?
