my dad has just come back from a wedding in turkey. always one for the bargains, he likes to purchase rolling tobacco in bulk whenever he goes abroad. golden virginia is his brand of choice.
i came home today and he told me he'd been ripped off. it's not golden virginia tobacco in the pouches, instead a cheaper substitute. upon examining the pouches its quite obvious they are fake - poor print quality, wonky logos, off colouring. my dads eyesight is poor at the best of times so its not really surprising that they targeted the glasses-wearing smoker. but to take the biscuit the conmen have had a bit of a laugh and printed:
GOLDEN VIRGINIA TOBACCO
"a blend of the finest virgina tobaccos"
