Not too subtle, eh? How is that for Irony?

Ireland, the land of Irony? I think I like that. Can't claim to get it, but think I like it. :)

LOL, hey Answer! That's great. I do miss those warnings being over here. I think my favourite is "Smoking is highly addictive, don't start." Erm...hello? It's a bit late, I just bought the pack!

Well the warning is on the front like that right? So basically they are "Please don't buy me" signs... with "but the company would really like it if you did" written in fine print on the bottom.

*giggles* Ayup, that's it, pretty much. I just never heard of someone stopping smoking because of the warning...but I guess it could prevent future smokers....hmmm....*contemplates*

See, it should have worked like this:

You: *goes to buy cigarettes*

You: *goes to the checkout line*

Clerk: "That'll be [whatever cigs go for nowadays, let's say $3]."

You: *looks at the package, and at the "Smoking kills" label*

You: *thinks, "I'm knowingly spending $3 of my hard earned money on something that says it will kill me."*

You: *thinks, "I'm a retard."*

You: (brightly) "You know what? Nevermind! Not buying that today, or ever again! *leaves store with $3 and life intact*

===

*G* I love ragging on smokers ;)
