There is always a Butt — 22 Comments

  1. This is where you can go and royally fuck yourself.  If I want help I will ask for it.  I do not need anyone telling me I need help and then trying to ram their fucking condescending "help" down my throat.

    Bravo! Hear hear! (Applause applause!) A succinct summing up of the way a lot of us feel.

    Love the pic of the ashtray – I'm going to nick that one for future deployment. In fact, I'd really like to get one. Any idea where they sell them? It's beyond parody! 🙂


    I'm an ex-drinker.  I couldn't care less if someone wants to drink.  Everyman has his poison.  I'm also on my way to being an ex-smoker.  I love the smell of cigarette smoke.  Smoke 'em up.  I don't understand the mentality of the prohibitionist.

    Live and let live!



    • I couldn't agree more.  There are many thinks that irritate me, and some that I think are downright dangerous but it is not my place to impose my ideals on others.

      "I don't understand the mentality of the prohibitionist."  – There is big money to be made!!!!

  3. It came as a bit of a surprise to me to discover that NHS guidelines allow for the transplanting of lungs from 20/day smokers.  Rather undermines the whiff of smoke 30ft away fears…

    • I believe that has been the practice for many years.  I also believe that the surgeons can't tell the difference between a smoker's and a non-smoker's lungs – all that business about black lungs that they love going on about [not to mention their lovely pictures] is all one massive lie. 

  4. The best bit about her story (which was written by Smokefree South West) was in the press release sent out by … Smokefree South West. It didn't make any of the news outlets but is rather telling.

    "She began smoking e-cigarettes to curb her addiction to tobacco but became addicted to these"

    It's almost a little sign post as to what is next on their agenda, isn't it? 

  5. On a pedantic point of Theology – the correct inscription on that religious plate should read: JESUS LOVES SMOKERS & NONSMOKERS ALIKE.  He will judge what is in your heart, not what is in your lungs.  Put the FUN back into fundamentalism, youse semi-literate Bible thumpers.

  6. I was at our local hospital yesterday and, as usual, lots of people were happily smoking outside. I think people will just ignore it. I was only ever approached by a fanatical busybody once and you never saw anyone move so fast when I told her the weight she was carrying would kill her first. They always run when you stand up to them. I enjoy smoking, have no wish to stop, of course after 50 years of it I should be dead but still here.

    • Strangely, I have never been approached [I'm still eagerly waiting] though I have had a couple of fly swatters and people muttering behind my back.  Maybe it's my appearance?  Maybe it's the viscous looking dog or the viscous looking wife?  Leastwise I look forward to the day……

  7. I see that at least 50% of the UKs population is going to die of a 'smoking related disease', whether they smoke or not. Add in heart attacks, strokes, and a few other complaints and it's probably up to 80%? I guess the remaining will get run over by a bus, get on the wrong plane, or be victim to some other inconvenient event that closes their chapter!

    However, if you move to Bristol, you'll live forever!

    • Seeing as every known [and unknown] disease and ailment is caused by smoking, it's a fair bet that we will all die from a smoking related disease.  Unless we are hit by a bus.  Unless we are hit by a bus where the driver isn't smoking.

  8. Okay so, granny smoked up to 58 cigarettes a day.

    And her name is butt?

    And ash trays (probably made in China) are speaking for Jesus?

    Christ! You couldn't make this stuff up.

    • I thought her name was appropriate all right! 

      Jesus loves us all [except smokers].  Just as well the Prodigal Son didn't enjoy a fag?
