First thing in my mailbox before dawn this morning. I didn’t watch the game, except to tune in for the halftime show, I think the game was tied then. Then fell right back to sleep, I’ve been sick in bed all weekend, not sure I’ll be able to go out today.
But what Zippo sent me was an offer for their KC Chiefs Super Bowl Champions commemorative lighter. They sure didn’t waste any time. And they didn’t make Donald Trump’s error of putting Kansas on it, or even the correct Missouri.
Now Trump followers can buy them, too, as they must hereafter claim that the Chiefs are from Kansas. Because as we know, their own chief can never be wrong, the very stable genius can make no errors, tells no lies, nor can admit to any.
BTW, in case you’re wondering why Zippo sends me emails, it’s not because I’m an unhealthy chain smoker. Neither of us smokes at all.
It’s for our hurricane readiness, when the electricity can be out for extended periods and we’re lighting candles. Their new butane inserts, shown in this add, are very nice, I have the single torch version in one of our lighters. I buy direct from Zippo, the lighters personalized with my initials, prompting the emails. I also have an LED battery lantern from Zippo, as well, which is better than others I’ve seen.
And surprising considering it’s sold by a lighter company. But then they make lots of things for outdoor cooking, campfires and such. Diversify or die, when your market is changing. As it surely is for those connected with tobacco products.
