Seriously, they are quite bad for you

The Hobart Mercury 5 April 2011

The latest plan is for Big Tobacco to have little calls to arms to smokers tucked inside the plain packaging with pictures of rotting body parts and a warning that you will get cancer on it that’s kept behind the counter out of sight containing smoking death sticks that you have to go out on to the street to smoke while passers-by glare at you with hatred and contempt.

Let’s face it, these people are probably pretty much impervious to arguments to the contrary anyway.

  1. I’m expecting a surge in sales of antique cigarette cases. Or flash plastic covers (like mobile phones skins).
