It’s Mid Afternoon And I Need A Cigarette!

I really don’t but I thought that headline might get your attention. I hate cigarette smoke. Especially on the golf course… and worst of all – those big ugly stinky stogie¬† ceeegars the arrogant men golfers puff and leave behind on the fairway. I’m sure they smoke on the golf course because their sweet wives can’t stand the stink in the house!

I heard an interesting tid-bit this morning on NPR as I was driving in to work. They have found a fabu use for recycled cigarette butts. Honest. It seems that if they soak the butts in water and extract the residual chemicals (including nicotine) they can use the resultant goo as a surface protector for metal. The gooey mess prevents corrosion!

Just imagine what that stuff is doing to your lungs! Here in Massachusetts the anti-smoking whoseewhatsitgroup is trying to get store owners to hang posters of rotten lungs and lip cancers within two feet of their cigarette shelves. The idea of course is to discourage people from buying the insidious smokes. Store owners are complaining. They don’t want to discourage sales. What planet are they on?

It’s so “mid afternoon” and I am so wanting a butt or two. Guess I’ll settle for gum and a tall cup of Java.

What burns my butt is the butts. Some smokers don’t think twice…or even once…about throwing their butts on the ground. They litter the streets with their cigarette stubs. That’s a gene pool the world won’t miss…cruel but true.

I particularly like the people who throw live butts out their car window while driving. I’ve had one or two end up in my car. Scary!

I think we should have lights flash that scream “litter bug” when someone tosses a butt! Can’t stand it.
