Cigar Lounge Manners: A basic understanding helps us all (and a deficiency is how some blog posts are born.)

This happened recently: A guy came into the cigar lounge and requested a punch cigar.

"We don't have Punch,"* the bartender said.

They went back and forth like this for way longer than they should have--very "Who's on First."

He finally (finally!) said he wanted a punch cigar, "not one that you cut."
We all lost ten minutes of our lives we'll never get back--although I got a blog post out of it, so not all bad...
You're reading this, so I assume you do have a basic understanding about how cigars work--a ton of brands exist and a hundred million tons of cigars** from all those companies, different ways to cut your cigar choice, the proper way to light the sucker... (Watching the guy light it was another horror story.)
If you don't know the basics, take ten minutes and check out Cigar Aficionado's Cigars 101.  You won't know alllll the things about cigars, but at least you'll take off on the right foot.***
And not wind up the subject of a blog post--unless it's for being your awesome cigar-smoking self.
**Slight exaggeration. Very slight.
***There's a foot on your cigar, too.
