I have several Zippo lighters. Including Cutter's Choice and Golden Virginia brass ones.

Soon I will have one of these.

Who says smokers have no sense of humour?

I once found a shop that sold disposable lighters for each of the signs of the zodiac, similar to but not this. Even though it isn't my birth sign I picked up a handful of "Cancer".

Nice! I have:
1) a coffin-shapred pocket ashtray;
2) a tobacco tin with a sticker which reads 'More acceptable than w*nking'.
That lighter could complete the set.

Good old Zippo! Are they still the only ones that will fire up even in a howling gale?

Excellent - you also want the one John Wayne used to give to the troops in Vietnam that had 'Fuck Communism' inscribed on it.

manwiddicombe - that's a great idea. I'll look out for those.

PT Barnum - a coffin shaped ashtray? A definite must-have.

JuliaM - they do light in a gale but it's not a good idea. A six-foot horizontal flame can be a bit scary.

Anon - there really should be a shop dedicated to all these things.

Sadly the online shop I acquired my coffin-shaped ashtray from no longer stocks it. They do however still do a nice line in stickers for...well, anywhere ;)

I was just browsing the BNP site today to see what thier view is on the smoking ban. I came accros this article from 2009.

In it Nick Griffin clearly states:

"For a start we’d end the smoking ban, abolish business rates for pubs, slash the duty on beer served in licensed premises."

So its BNP for me then!

Bought a zippo lighter in Port Stanley , Falklands in 1987 for my dad and it still fires up no probs. Has my squadron crest on it ( 23(F )Eagle Sqn Phantoms).
My dad is long since dead but I noticed yesterday that my mum had polished it and given it pride of place on the mantlepiece on my dad's birthday.
