RUSH: I got an e-mail during the break. ‘Rush, the Dittocam’s on and there you are puffing away. You’re letting people see you smoke.’ I’m not smoking. A lot of people have said, ‘Rush, I don’t see you smoking cigars.’ I’m trying to cut back on them, folks. This is an E-Cigarette. (interruption) Dawn is in there shaking her head. Look, you unscrew it. This is the cartilage. This has nicotine in it. This is the battery. Inside this cartilage is an atomizer. When you suck on it, when you draw on it, it creates water vapor. This is green. This is apple shaped. You get it in pineapple, vanilla, apple, regular tobacco, menthol or what have you (for the brothers), and there’s no tar, there’s no nicotine, there’s no nothing. No, no, no. (interruption)
They’re flavoring it to make… No, there’s nicotine, there’s no tar. There’s no tobacco; there’s no flame. You light nothing. It’s no different than Nicorette gum except it actually looks like a cigarette and you get the oral, uh, gratification and so forth, but there’s no carcinogen here. (interruption) Well, there’s a bunch of brands. Volcano. There’s a great brand, Volcano, out of Hawaii. Smoke 51 is one. I have a bunch of different ones that I use. I’m just trying to cut back on the tobacco. I still smoke cigars now and then but not as often as I did. I don’t want to run around wearing patches and it’s unbecoming to sit there and chew gum all the time. You know, that ain’t me. I’m not a gum chewer anyway. E-Cigs. Google ’em. You’ll see what I was talking about.
RUSH: I have to tell you something. The other day I ordered some stuff off the Internet, an iPad carrying case. What I liked about the iPad carrying case, it’s from some company called ZooGue, one word. It’s a case that you can set the iPad up at any angle you want for viewing it and using it, doesn’t have to lay flat. That’s what came in here this morning, Brian. And it came with a note attached. I did not order this in my name.
My name is Tim Angel. I’m a 25-year-old entrepreneur inventor. I’m a huge fan. I just wanted to thank you for your inspiration. You are my idol. If it was not for you I would not be where I am today. If only we had more people like Rush, the world would be a much better place.
Tim Angel, owner of ZooGue.
I addressed it to Brian Johnson here at our secret enclave, secret address. There’s note in there, ‘Dear Rush,’ which is intriguing. But anyway Tim Angel, he’s the guy who invented the thing, the iPad case. I got five of them. I always order more than one because I give away things if I like them. And I tried it. It came in right before the program started today, fits in my briefcase. You know, Apple makes a case, too, but it’s a standard thing, it’s got one angle that it props up on. This thing, you can set it up at any angle you want to get the light out of it or straight on no matter what where you are. It’s pretty cool. So thank you, Tim Angel. But when he says, ‘If only we had more people like Rush Limbaugh –‘ there’s no question the world would be a better place if the world had more people like me, but Tim, I can handle it.
RUSH: I’m going to do this one more time. We’re going to put this stuff on the website. I open a can of worms every time I do this, but if I do it, I do it. We have shut down the poor guy’s website at ZooGue, the manufacturer, the young 25-year-old entrepreneur who makes the best iPad case out there. His name is Tim Angel. And you would not believe what people are sending me in e-mail, how they think you spell ZooGue, and I even spelled it. It’s one word, Z-o-o-g-u-e, ZooGue. Now, the poor guy’s website — well, I don’t know if it’s up and running now, but we shut it down as we do every time we mention a website. And then people say, ‘What are the two e-cig companies you mentioned?’
I’m going to do this one more time, we’re gonna shut them down, too. It happens. It’s actually good for them but you have to be patient, and Koko is out there listening, so put these links up at RushLimbaugh.com. The first one is Volcano. Their brand is Magma, but it’s volcanoecigs.com. You writing that down, Snerdley? Volcanoecigs.com. The other one is shop.Ismokeeverywhere.org. Now, Dawn told me I should mention these last week — (interruption) Both sites are shut down? ZooGue is shut down? Yeah, it’s going to be shut down for a while. That’s what we do here, we shut down websites. But they’ll be back up after a while. ZooGue, shop.Ismokeeverywhere.org, and volcanoecigs.com. Those are the three companies I referenced today that I use.
RUSH: Oh, and, by the way, by the way, by the way, I am not giving up cigars because I got married. I am getting e-mails accusing me of being henpecked and all kinds of stuff. I still smoke cigars. I have just cut back. You would not believe the e-mails I’m getting from people accusing me of being PW and all this other stuff, and it’s not true.
