(FOX News) Talk radio king Rush Limbaugh stunned his 27-million member audience Monday with the announcement he's been diagnosed with "advanced lung cancer." The 69-year-old conservative talk pioneer closed his broadcast with the grim news, saying he will be leaving his golden EIB microphone for treatment, but hopes to return soon.

“This day has been one of the most difficult days in recent memory, for me, because I’ve known this moment was coming,” Limbaugh said. “I’m sure that you all know by now that I really don’t like talking about myself and I don’t like making things about me… one thing that I know, that has happened over the 31-plus years of this program is that there has been an incredible bond that had developed between all of you and me.”

Rush Limbaugh & Caller: Praise for Large-Ring-Gauge Cigars
(EIB, Jul 27, 2018)
RUSH: Well, the reason why… I remember when they thought it was just a blip is because it was so vastly outside the norm. I mean the standard ring gauge… Your average, ordinary cigar smoker, the standard ring gauge was anywhere between 32 to 47 — and 47, at one time, was considered jumbo. That’s the size of a Churchill. You get in Double Corona size; you’re looking at a 49 ring gauge. I happen to love big-ring-gauge cigars, because I love… I don’t like these thin little things that make you feel like you’re drinking soup. You know, if you’re gonna smoke a cigar, smoke a cigar. You need to put it in your mouth and you need to be substantial. The bigger-ring gauge, the better.

CALLER: (chuckling)

RUSH: But none of that matters! It shouldn’t matter what you the look like or what other people think. Do you like them? Do you like big-ring gauge? You obviously do.

CALLER: Asylum 80 ring gauge is one of my favorites right now.

RUSH: Well, what size is that?

CALLER: It’s a 6-inch by 80 ring gauge.

RUSH: Six-inch by… 80!

CALLER: Eighty.

RUSH: (chuckles) Well, then your mouth is wide open the whole time that cigar is in it. But it’s a maximized way of getting the flavor out of the cigar. I think if you like it, stick with it. Don’t worry what you look like or what other people think of it ’cause none of that matters.
