And it tastes good, like a three alarm fire should.

I'd rather fight than switch.

From TFA: "Those products are made to burn, so that's why the building is burning the way it's burning,"

ummm... correct me if I'm wrong, but don't products that aren't made to burn also responsible for a building burning the way it's burning? That sofa store that burned killing 9 firefighters did just fine burning and most furniture isn't really intended to be burned.

I was just reading a book discussing the evacuation of Richmond in 1865. In order to prevent the Union Army from using the supplies left behind, the Confederate Government ordered the tobacco warehouses burned. They didn't think that burning warehouses full of tobacco would cause the fire to get out of hand.

God bless those brave firefighters as they Taste the Adventure.

+1 carton of Luckies to subby for the headline of the week

The tobacco companies are more efficient than the oil companies, the city will be resupplied by sun down.

A cigarette hanging from the lips of a woman is as sexy as a missing tooth on her smile.

If flavor country is buying a single Newport out of a filthy basket by the register, then yes it is.

Were all the employees at home, refusing to work until they got better pay?


Because that would be a Lucky Strike

Marcus Aurelius: I'd rather fight than switch.


Yet our best trained, best educated, best equipped, best prepared troops refuse to fight...matter of fact it's safe to say they would rather switchhhhhhh.....than fight.

So many pro-smokers, so many medical bills from lung cancer to come. You have to be a complete idiot to smoke now days knowing what is in cigerettes and what they cost. Just keep telling yourselfs "it wont happen to me, it wont happen to me" That should save you from getting lung cancer. Also, if you do get it, make sure you act dumb like you didnt know cigeretts where dangerous, that way you can get people to feel sorry for you.
 
2008-11-20 08:02:16 PM  
This is a headline from a gifted submitter

It is made of WIN and LULZ
 
2008-11-20 08:08:35 PM  
Great headline, subby!. Short, subtle, and effective.
It brings the lulz, but without trying too hard.
 
2008-11-20 08:10:18 PM  
Damn fine headline. Sometimes Fark should just pony up a shirt for the subby if it's this good.
