Apparently,a resident of Clearwater,Florida has recently decided to purchase a giant cigar called "El Gigante",for $185,000 dollars.

"The cigar is 19 feet long and three feet wide. It's covered in 16,000 wrapper leaves - enough to make 25,000 regular size cigars - and weighs 1,600 pounds.

Juan Panesso runs an online cigar shop. He told the Tampa Tribune that a collector asked him to find the rare cigar, which was located in Miami. Panesso says the private buyer got a good deal on the cigar that had a recommended retail price tag of $200,000.

The cigar, called El Gigante (The Giant), comes in its own carrying case - a 900-pound round wooden crate. It's sitting in a warehouse in Clearwater until Tuesday when it will be shipped to its new owner."

I'm sure dude isn't balling on any budget whatsoever..thoughts?
