Hmmmm.... So I STILL can't enjoy my double quarter-pounder with Marlboros?

Ewww...

Do you put ketchup on that? What about the onions?

Wouldn't the onions make the cigs soggy?

Sorry...

Actually, I was trying to imply that the cigs were part of tha sammich. Like "Quarter pounder w/ cheese" only tastier!

/thanks for "getting it"!

Without, "Americans Are Obese" headlines, what will the news channels report on now?

No shiat, you comic genius. I was also implying that the cigs were part of the "sammich". Asking how the other condiments and extras would change the cigs that were also on the "sammich".

/thanks for "not getting it"

"And now we take you to Bob with breaking news down at the Capitol. Bob?"

"Thanks, Cheryl. Just moments ago, on this very spot, our President said that he was pleased with his trip to 'Llanfairpwllgwynjillgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Wales', instead of 'Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Wales', as it is correctly pronounced. What a complete idiot! I can't believe we trust this imbecile to run our country. Back to you, Cheryl."

Uhhmmm, that "thank you" was sincere. I figured most people would assume that I meant smoking and eating, not eating the cigarettes. I was happy that you understood.

/sigh
 
2005-01-19 02:20:30 PM
I only smoke right after breakfast. And lunch. And dinner. And during McGuyver.
 
2005-01-19 02:21:15 PM
Thank God! Now I can go back to eating my double quarter pounder with cheese that has hash browns instead of buns on it.
 
2005-01-19 02:21:16 PM
So, does that make Tobacco the new obesity? And does this mean we can go back to eating like pigs instead of smoking like chimneys?

(what's all this about nico-burgers?)
 
2005-01-19 02:21:49 PM
That may be, but the number people I've wanted to kill for being obese still outnumbers the number of people I've wanted to kill for smoking. I wonder if they took that into consideration!

/worst flight to Disney World ever ::cries::
 
2005-01-19 02:23:24 PM
Yay smoking! You killed 'em!
 
2005-01-19 02:23:35 PM
I only smoke on days that end in "Y".

That is media bias for you. how did halliburton pull that one over on the CDC for so long?

fatties of the world rejoice!
 
2005-01-19 02:25:22 PM
I would smoke in my sleep if I could. I prefer smoke to air.
 
2005-01-19 02:25:35 PM
Not all smokers are losers, but all losers smoke.

Discuss.
 
2005-01-19 02:26:48 PM
VTGremlin, I for one, would like to hear exactly what happened on your flight to Disney World.
 
2005-01-19 02:27:35 PM
What about fat smokers? Do they get to die twice?
 
2005-01-19 02:27:50 PM
At least smoking makes you look somewhat cool while it's killing you. Fatties are just.. fat and mushy.
 
2005-01-19 02:28:15 PM
I found that the best way to deal with billing problems with CSRs over the phone is to skip my morning coffee and cigarettes and go to town on 'em.
 
2005-01-19 02:29:28 PM
fat people make me afraid.

something is just wrong when someone can't pull their own weight up a rope. i mean fat women are cute or ugly just like "thin" women, but i think certain body parts need to get the benifit of fresh air from time to time.

if you are a fat woman reading this, then sorry, but it's true as far as my experience is concerned.

i'm totally for the military's general weight table formulas. it's simple common sense; it's healthy. the human body was not made to live a slug's life. imo.

It will if you smoke crystal meth.

So....., overeating takes its place back as Public Enemy #2, right after smoking. Whoop-dee-doo.

Join us in our crusade to overpopulate the planet.
 
2005-01-19 02:31:12 PM
Remember, kids, smoking cigarettes doesn't make you cool.

It just makes you look cool.



Now, pot smoking, on the other hand, does make you cool.
 
2005-01-19 02:32:49 PM
Yay! We're still number one! Get summa that fatties!

That's what I never understood. Who actually thinks it looks cool? You've got a stick hanging out of your mouth...it looks ridiculous. That goes for the guys who walk around with toothpicks in their mouth too.
 
2005-01-19 02:33:16 PM
23 pounds lost, and counting. All I really did was cut out fast food and soda.. and try to walk more often.
 
2005-01-19 02:35:43 PM
Actually, neither obesity nor smoking are the real killers, but the *long term effects* from both of them are what kills you, and some/most of them may be overlapping.

discuss.

I recently quit smoking and I'm trying to lose weight. Now I'll live forever.

I miss food. And smoking. And eating while smoking. And smoking after I eat.

/sigh.
 
2005-01-19 02:38:15 PM
I'm also shooting for my second hand smoke to rank, at least, in the top ten next year. It's all about setting goals and working towards them.
 
2005-01-19 02:38:32 PM
actually, its a known fact that smoking a cigarette will reduce your basal body temprature, so it does make you "cooler."


/just sayin'...

I kinda agree. And I cant do it. I have started lifting (small) weights to build up muscle.

Good heaven's man. You have no idea how empowering it is for me to suck in a deep lungful of death, grimace a little, and then exhale a long thoughtful stream of smoke. To smoke is to have a paintbrush in your hand at all times. I can smoke to make myself seem more threatening, intelligent, pensive, carefree, you name it.

/yeah i know smoking is retarded
//quitting next week

Well, when society collapses, fat people will be a godsend because they'll have plenty of food stashed away, and they can't run after you very fast.

But the smokers can't exactly run all that far.

I think smokers are very cool.

The limp, greasy hair.
The wrinkled faces.
The yellow fingers.
The chronic bad breath.
The musty stench of their bodies, clothing, and homes.
The inability to drive in a straight line.
The coughing and wheezing.
The disregard for the health of the people around you.

Who wouldn't find that cool?

We can run fast enough to catch a big one, then we eat for a month.
