Churchill’s cigars

Winston Churchill was an avid cigar smoker. In fact, Churchill reportedly smoked 8-10 cigars each day. Once, Churchill dined with King Ibn Sa’ud of Saudi Arabia. The king did not allow any smoking in his presence, but Churchill refused to take a break from his cigar. He told the king that smoking was a sacred right to him, so the king allowed it.
