Stanky Club

An unofficial, not formally sanctioned, subsidiary group of individuals whose enjoyment of fine cigars has earned them the sobriquet “Stanky” in honor of the aromas they bring in with them when returning to civilization.



Rule Number One:      There are no rules, only these simple guidelines to prepare and maintain a “STANKY” way of living and pleasure!

As a true follower I will:

Endeavor to seek out and smoke only the finest of cigars;

Seek out participatory meetings of fellow Stanky members, mindful to hold such meetings so that those who do not appreciate a good cigar are not offended;

Join my fellow Stanky as often as possible in the enjoyment only a good cigar can bring; Whenever possible, in order to intensify that enjoyment, a Stanky will imbibe in their favorite beverage of choice during a Stanky event;

Share a good stogie with a fellow Stanky, who may find themselves temporarily in the most untenable position of not having a cigar;

During Stanky gatherings conversation shall include any such topic as may “entertain” the group or otherwise provide for an embarrassing jab at a fellow Stanky – but only in the best of “Taste”. This need not apply to non-members.

Wear the official Stanky membership pin at Stanky meetings.

We Believe ...

That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;

That the brotherhood of Man transcends the sovereignty of nations;

That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;

That government should be of laws rather than of men;

That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;

And that service to humanity is the best work of life.
