    What blatant sabotage of a legitimate industry. I say that's only fair if they put a picture of a gross, choking fat man on every bag of chips, pictures of skin cancer on tanning booths and sunlamps, and a crying guy with empty pockets on every hot bitch.

    They were looking to make the change to graphic warning labels but it was voted as unconstitutional, since the cigarette companies are just that - companies - and are one of the few big industries that actually pays their taxes compared to others.

    Lol nanny-statism at its worst. See these anti cig mothers think a lot like the vegans: you're retarded for doing what you do, and it clearly must be because you don't have the information. They think the best way to give you the information is through gross lies, distortion and graphic images. In their minds, much like an atheists, it is IMPOSSIBLE for you to believe differently than they do.

    The label is in some foreign language.

    That's fine.

    No one cares if some foreigners have their ciggie boxes fucked up.

    I always get the smokes that say "low birth weight". Obviously, these are the healthiest ones a man can smoke.

    To be honest I find most anti-campaigns to be really annoying.
    Like I'm suppose to clap that they found a new way to say smoking is bad.
    Everyone already fucking knows that smoking is bad for you.
    Everyone knows that drinking gets you fucked up.
    Everyone knows that weed also gets you fucked up.
    Everyone knows that fast food makes you a fattie.
    Where's the anti-campaign that warns that as a self-righteous douche you become a perma-virgin?

    This is horrible, smoking is a way to look cool and to rebel against the status quo by not being the picture of health who lives to be 100 and goes onto the Smucker's Jam-sponsored oldfag birthday segment of the Today Show every year. Dying at 55 is the way to go.

    @Helix, I agree with you. Plus if they go with your truth-in-advertising warning label idea, fast food and ice cream companies should be using ugly snorlaxes with MedicAlert bracelets who have gangrene and diabeetus. Energy drink and diet pill companies should have people dying of heart attacks and pictures of hearts that have large amounts of dead, infarcted necrosis. And alcohol companies should have pictures of cirrhotic livers, disfigured or dead accident victims and people with Hepatitis C all over bottles, boxes and cans.

    But honestly, warning labels are for the nanny state, educated decisions or refusals are how it should be done.

    Maybe they should try a different approach, with a label along these lines:
    "Hey, dickhead - this pack is going to cost you $10, $9.5 of which is going to the government to pay for ads about how bad this is for you".

    All warning labels are only for retards. And who cares if a retard dies? No one.

    I say we remove all warning labels to fix the gene pool.

    Remember back when they wanted to put skulls and crossbones on the back of cigarettes to remind people that they were deadly? I can see the thought-process now.

    "We need to get kids to stop thinking cigarettes make them look like badasses and convince them that those things are bad for their health. I know, let's slap a skull on the back of it. That'll show those kids smoking isn't cool."

    The skull and crossbones has come to mean "pirates" or "heavy metal" among kids these days, instead of death. Mr. Yuck seems to work OK, but is trademarked by a poison control center.

    When I was around family that included a lot of kids over Christmas, I put Mr. Yuck stickers on my food, alcohol, cigarettes and even Ronson fuel so the kids would leave it alone, it worked great.

    I've always found cigarettes to be effeminate in nature. Men smoke cigars. Fuck, Castro smoked one a day and he's over eighty.

    Fucking right.

    I'm actually more fond of pipes. Aside from the initial cost of a pipe, they're cheaper than cigars as you're only paying for the tobacco. The only downside is that you feel like you are a pretentious fuck.
