Old Aug 19th, 2011, 09:48 AM        New Cigarette Warning Labels
So, apparently the government is now going to make the tobacco companies put these awfully graphic warnings on cigarette packs. http://www.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/06/21...ery/index.html
The government is also going to make the tobacco companies have the warnings cover half of the front and back of the pack. As a smoker, I could give a shit about what the pack looks like, I'm going to smoke them anyway. But, it seems tobacco is getting is getting an unfair deal. I mean, why doesn't the goverrnment make alcohol producers put pictures of diseased livers and people mangled in DUI crashes on their bottles. Why shouldn't McDonald's and its cohorts have to put pictures of big fat ugly bastards on their food wrappers. It seems that smoking is unfairly demonized while other problems such as alcohol abuse and obesity are overlooked.

Your thoughts?

I think this should be in politics/philosophy. I don't smoke, and when I did, I only smoked big stinky cigars, but I think the government should just fuck off about telling companies what to do. First it was no smoking in bars and now it's this. Hey, but maybe it'll bring people like me in to smoking who want to collect all 9.

Why don't they make shorter cigarettes like those little pepsi's you can buy now.

This could only help the sale of cigarettes to minors. Kids will collect anything.

They've been this way in Canada for as long as I can remember. Like most forms of advertising, it's ignored.

Yeah, I see a picture of a baby in an incubator, rotting teeth, a flaccid cigarette, or two kids saying "Please don't hurt us" every time I smoke. I can take a few pictures, if anyone wants to see. Or, y'know, Google...

And yeah, smokers get demonized pretty fucking badly.

So when are they going to start slapping labels on Budweiser cans? You know like, "alcohol consumption can cause cirrhosis of the liver" or "drinking during pregnancy can cause 'fetal alcohol syndrome" or "alcohol kills more people than crack, cocaine and heroin combined"?

Look, I'm a man who enjoys his beer and cigarettes. My point is not that alcohol is bad, I'm just saying it's pretty hypocritical to demonize one drug and celebrate another.

That should read "potentially deadly drug" but my edit button doesn't exist anymore

It's just all about who makes the biggest stink. I'm pretty sure there's a lot more people protesting cigarettes than alcohol right now. They probably celebrated this announcement with a beer or glass of wine.

I hear the new warning labels say "Suck my dick" and are designed to be removed and stuck on the smoker's chest like a nametag

I remember in "When You Are Engulfed In Flames", David Sedaris talks about how polite the warning labels are on Japanese cigarette packs. They say things like "Please consider not smoking, it is very bad for you!"

if you puke up every time you drink alcohol you are going about drinking the wrong way

I should really quit smoking though, I've been short of breath lately. Also, I had chronic bronchitis when i was a kid and I heard that if you smoke with that preexisting condition that really puts you at risk for developing acute lung cancer

Or give you wicked awesome pipes like the guy from Blues Traveler.


He is the Busta Rhymes of the Harmonica.

They should just go all out and put pictures of death on everything. The interior of our cars should have pictures of car crashes that can be avoided by not driving. Guns should have pictures of gunshot wound victims engraved into the metal. Beer should have pictures of naked obese women with stds who you might bang while drunk. Condoms should have pictures of all the sperm/egg babies you're killing by using them. We should just surround ourselves with pictures of death just so we know what could happen from the item we're using (even though we already know). Video games can just show a picture of me after I was up for 20 hours playing oblivion the night it came out.

I think the point is that cigarettes are more or less guaranteed to kill you, while everything else will only kill you if you're doing it wrong.

If you eat a lot of unhealthy food, that's guaranteed to kill you as well.
