Get yer Diesel Shorty Ltd. (Gordo) via my buddies my pals my chums at Cigars City.

The Diesel Shorty Ltd. offering is a collaboration twixt cigar-maker extraordinaire one A.J. Fernandez and Shorty Rossi. Mr. Rossi, as some may recall, is/was(?) an Animal Planet on-air personality and on/off-air vertically-challenged-American whom rescues Pit Bulls to adopt out to furever homes. 

No thanks. I'll take a dog with smaller feces than my own, please. 

Ne'er-the-less, Shorty was looking for a go-to smoke all his own, and A.J. obliged herein. I cannot fathom smoking this level of nicotine whilst weighing any less than my own svelte 170. Hats off, Shorty.
