In order to further discourage smoking, especially by youngsters, our government has decided that the cigarette producers have to put ‘dirty pictures’ on the packets of cigarettes.
What moron thought of this? I would think that dirty pictures would attract young boys rather than frighten them. If anything, it will be a reason to start smoking:
- “Did you see my latest cancer picture yet?”
- “Whoaaaaw, that’s soooo gross. I’ll trade you for three pictures of tar lungs!”
- “Nah, everyone has tar lungs.”
- “How about rotting fingers? I’ve got some nice ones of rotting fingers.”
- “Ok, show me.”
These fools clearly know nothing of the psyche of young boys, or of the psyche of grown men for that matter. Grown men are very fond of dirty pictures, that’s the whole reason why they spend so much time on the internet.
Except me of course, because I’m above that sort of thing, being a married man and all that.
