"But I thought they had vitamins in them and stuff!"

Nanny is not pleased. Putting warnings on cigarette packets failed to make everyone quit. putting bigger warnings on them also failed to make everyone quit. Now putting graphic pictures on them is working just as well. Can anyone find me a smoker who doesn't know cigarettes are bad for you?

Well apparently some people don't want to be told over and over again something they already know, and as often happens in capitalist societies, someone decides to sell them what they want. In this case a cover to put your pack of cigarettes in. According to Nanny, this is bad, because you need to be nagged, and you shouldn't have the option of not listening to Nanny nag you.

Despite the fact I'm not a smoker, these people make me want to light up and blow smoke in their faces.

Does this thing still work?

Well, that took longer than planned.

The good news is that I'm now no longer working three jobs, and might actually have some time to pay attention to what's happening in the world, and perhaps even blog about it!
