Prince Albert Tobacco. (Even though I'm against smoking & the use of tobacco, this is all I can think of.) Ah, the ol' "Prince Albert in a Can" joke.....Prince Albert in a Can
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

A can of Prince albert.Prince Albert is a brand of pipe tobacco sold by John Middleton, Inc. The brand gained widespread recognition, perhaps infamously, due to the classic prank call, where the caller asks if the store has "Prince Albert in a can" and when the unexpecting clerk responds "yes", the caller follows up with "You better let him out (before he suffocates)!" This same joke was also used by Stewie and Brian in the popular cartoon series Family Guy as well as a clone of Blooregard Q. Kazoo on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

Despite this negative publicity, Prince Albert is one of the more popular independent brands of tobacco in the USA. More recently, it has also become available in the form of pipe-tobacco cigars.

Though there have been several Prince Alberts in the monarchies of Europe, Prince Albert tobacco is named for Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
