Genuine Horse Shit Cigarettes

Pretty sure all cigarettes are made with shitty stuff just as equally disgusting as equine road apples, but this is still a funny pack of novelty gag coffin sticks I saw at an antique mall a while back. I have no idea how old they are, and I didn't buy 'em either because even joke cigs make me wanna gag, --still, there's funny text on all sides, not to mention a hilarious typo or two. Now isn't that sweed?

Well there's a novelty gag that's new to me! I'm not sure how much use you could get out of it ... and I think a smoker trying to bum a cig is probably antsy enough with withdraws to not want to read the humorous packaging!

So they're real cigarettes--albeit dirt cheap--with a hilarious gag wrapper? Searching around online I see they are still for sale in Mexico (and a lot of vintage stores where people are off-loading grandad's supply of novelty treasure). I've never seen these before (which is strange, what with the grandad I had...).

I seem to remember these as a kid, maybe at a tourist shop in the Ozarks or somewhere. Of course I might be getting it confused with all the other highly treasured corny gag stuff of my childhood.

Thanks for the comments!

I was snooping in my dad's home office circa 1955 and found a pack of Horse Shit Cigarettes. I asked Dad what they were, and he said, "Oh, they're just a joke." I said, "Better get rid of them before Mom sees them," and he replied, "You're right!" Next time I looked for them they were gone. I shoulda kept my mouth shut!
