The American television and radio host Larry King found himself in a coughing fit after trying a cucumber-flavored vape juice.
Standing at a valet stand outside a West Hollywood restaurant, Larry King was fielding the typical nonsensical questions from TMZ reporters when a female puffing on a vaping device caught his attention.
“That’s good smoke,” said Larry King to the woman seemingly eluding to the fact that vape smoke does not contain the roughly four thousand toxic chemicals and carcinogens that tradition cigarettes do.
“Yeah, this is cucumber. Have you tried it?” asked the woman.
King looked on skeptically as the woman walked over and insisted that he give it a try. “Seriously, it’s cucumber,” she said.
“What is it?” asked King with continued suspicion.
“It’s cucumber,” said the woman as she brought the vape pen to the 84-year old, ex-cable news guru’s lips. Larry wrapped his raisin lips around the mouthpiece and for a brief moment, the ambient world seemed to silently wait for his reaction.
Just one puff is all it took to launch Mr. King into a coughing fit. The reporters and muckraking onlookers laughed as the female vaper maintained that the second hit would surely be better.
“Oh, oh the second one’s better,” said the woman as she placed her hand on King’s heart.
According to TMZ (the most reliable source of news available, pun definitely intended), Larry stopped smoking back in 1987, but clearly still has urges. Based on his post-smoke review … vaping has cured him of that.
