At this point, everyone knows what a catch-22 is. A common example is an entry level job posting that requires experience. You can’t get the job because you have no experience. You can’t get experience because you can’t get a job. And on and on it goes.
The term was coined in a novel you might remember from high school English titled, of course, Catch-22. Members of the military, government employees, or others involved in bureaucracies will recognize their struggles in the classic book that follows the story of Yossarian, a young airman in World War II. The book contains many examples of logic traps and catch-22s. For example, Yossarian can get out of having to do more bombing runs if he proves he is insane. But requesting to be grounded is a fully sane request, proving he isn’t insane. Thus, anyone who asks to be grounded for reason of insanity is automatically going to get denied.
It’s a Catch-22.
Anyhow, the Rocky Patel Catch 22 cigar won’t give you any such trouble. In fact, it might be cathartic to smoke it when you encounter bureaucratic or office politics BS in your own life. Imagine that your boss, colleagues, or a terrible policy that’s ruining your life are in the cigar, then light that bitch up and smoke it to the nub.
This stick features Corojo and Connecticut wrapper versions, rolled around a Nicaraguan and Sumatran double binder. The filler blend is super robust, containing Dominican, Honduran, Mexican, and Nicaraguan tobaccos. Light it up for an intriguing blend of flavors that include cocoa, earth, and spice. Of course, before we’ll pass you our lighter, you have to smoke the cigar. But you can’t smoke the cigar because you have no lighter.
The solution, as with all Catch-22s, is to punch the person who came up with the rule and then simply do what you want. Any freshman Logic professor will agree.
