Glossary of Commonly Used Acronyms and Tobacco terms

Post by AnOldSoul » Sun Feb 07, 2010 12:08 pm

Please add as you see fit (just look for duplicates before your post, haha).

Alright, I'll start us off:

FVF - Samuel Gawith's "Full Virginia Flake"

BC - GL Pease "Barbary Coast"

B&M - "Brick & Mortar". An actual tobacco shop, as opposed to an online store

CCP - Gawith & Hoggarth's "Conniston Cut Plug"

DBE - Gawith & Hoggarth's "Dark BirdsEye"

DGT - "Delayed Gratification Technique". Any pipe bowl that's been set down
partway-through and picked up later

EMP - Dunhill's "Early Morning Pipe"

FMOTB - McClelland's "Frog Morton On The Bayou"

FMOTT - McClelland's "Frog Morton On The Town"

GH - "Gawith & Hoggarth", as in GH DBE

HOTW - Rattray's "Hal O' The Wynd"

LSW - "Long-Suffering Wife"

MB - "Mac Baren" A popular tobacco company.

McC - "McClelland" Another popular tobacco company.

OJK - Cornell & Diehl's "Old Joe Krantz"

PAD - "Pipe Acquisition Disorder". Characterized by long sessions spent
window shopping at web sites, the inability to leave a tobacconist's without
a new pipe, and the selling-off of old pipes in order to buy new ones.

PS LBF - "Peter Stokkebye's Luxury Bullseye Flake"

PS LTF - "Peter Stokkebye's Luxury Twist Flake"

SG - "Samuel Gawith", as in SG 1792. Also, another popular tobacco company.

SWMBO - "She Who Must Be Obeyed", i.e., wife or girlfriend

TAD - "Tobacco Acquisition Disorder". Usually characterized by an insane
desire to fill one's cellar, a panic that a particular blend will be unavailable soon, or the notion that one should only smoke blends with at least a year of age on them.

That's a GRINGO taco!

Taco--can be beef, chicken, pork or fish in a soft tortilla (the addition of the word "shell" gives away the non Mexican ignorance) almost always with shredded lettuce and cheese and piquante sauce. Can also have cilantro (yum), tomatos, onions. Wonderful eaten with frijoles charro and perhaps a little natilla on the side.
