n.— «The other day I blogged some of the words to a song called “Must Be the Money” by a rap group called Nelly. The verse is…”If you want to go take a ride with me, smoke an L in the back of my Benz-y…”…An “L” is an El Producto cigar. They were smoking El Producto cigars in the back of the Benz-y. I was so happy. Now I know what an “L” is and I don’t want to smoke one.» —“Smoke an ‘L’” by Barbara Mosaic Mom Jan. 8, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
