So Why Does It Still Smell Like Death?

What’s in a cigarette?

    Some interesting items on that list-

    #49, beet juice concentrate. What, is that in Russian cigarettes? Borscht butts?

    #73, butter. I don’t believe it. As the saying goes, you can cook newspaper in butter and it will taste good. Granted, when butter catches fire the smoke doesn’t have much to recommend it, but I can’t believe that anything as disgusting as a cigarette has any butter in it.

    I love the phrasing on items like this:
    common food item; found in grapes.

    #273, honey. Sounds like a good idea, as do #495, plum juice, and #586, vanilla. But set them on fore while encased in tobacco, and yecchhh.

    #579, urea gras. The “urea” part I can absolutely believe.

    This info should be taught in elementary school health classes. I’ve seen preadolescents smoke. It looks surrealistically evil.

    You know what else looks surrealistically evil? Animals smoking.

    Yep. I’ve also seen video of chimpanzees smoking. It looks like it was filmed on another planet. In another dimension.

    There was a newspaper feature about wacky laws the other day, they mentioned that in several states it is unlawful to train a monkey to smoke. That didn’t strike me as wacky at all.

    Yeah, I think laws against animal abuse are very unwacky.
