I read the thread about smoking making you dumb and got to thinking. I do believe that I have identified a conspiracy!
'Alcoholic drinks manufacturers are funding anti smoking campaigns!'
Before I start my ramblings I just want to make it clear that I am not a smoker, nor have I ever smoked. It just strikes me that smokers are targeted more and more with various reasons why they should stop. On the otherhand drinkers are left in peace to continue chucking the stuff down their necks. At this point I will admit to being a drinker!
Here are some observations:
1/ I have never seen a person smoke 5 Silk Cut in a row, become aggresive and then try to smash the half full cigarette packet into a strangers face for looking at them in a funny way.
2/ Smokers tend not to binge smoke in the afternoon. Then on the way home loose control of their car and wipe out 5 old aged pensioners waiting at a bus stop.
3/ Though some are boring to begin with, I have never had to endure the same story told to me by a smoker at a party time after time, because he/she has had "to much to smoke".
4/ Smokers tend not to throw up all over the street every Friday and Saturday nights.
5/ Smokers tend not to blame their actions on "having smoked too much".
6/ Smokers don't appear to have to stagger down the road 'after a few fags' singing and swearing at the top of their voices at 2.00am in a residential area.
7/ They don't smoke so much that they fall asleep and p**s their pants in a train/bus/cab.
I could go on but I guess you get the picture.
So when are we going to see a concerted campaign against drinkers???? OR are the drinks companies trying to ban smoking so that people drink more??
I think this has got to go down as one of the craziest post ever (besides eScrews webpage)
I think you are a marijana smoker my friend - please read your post when you are sober
