Markets in Everything: Smoking Mittens

Mittens with a metal eyelet to perfectly fit your cigarette. Helps you keep your hands warm when you are smoking outside. And let's face it, you are going to be smoking outside a lot.

Gotta get me some of those! And, no, I'm not being facetious. How long before New York State outlaws them as dangerous to our health?

How do these improve upon regular gloves? You can smoke with those.

Its like that Ali G episode where he talks about his new invention, "the ice cream glove": its a glove you put on so that you don't get melted ice cream on your hands. How is that different from a regular glove?

AIG,

Based on the picture of the model, I guess it's because children prefer mittens. I hope they come with clips for her coat so she won't lose them.

Mittens keep your hands much warmer than gloves, especially in really cold weather. Probably not a big deal until it's -20 below, and then mittens are noticeable better than gloves.

MP,
True, but if you're outside smoking at 20 below, you may need my new invention: the eye-less ski mask with a small plastic hole (not metal like the mitten, so your tongue doesn't get stuck) for your cig.

There is no way my Ramon Allones robusto is going to fit through that little hole.
