  • WOW!!!

    Robin, this is Excellent.  Thanks.  And for using “myriad” correctly, I am also very thankful.  And for using cigarettes to put terrorism in perspective.  You have a beautiful mind.

  • I think I must apologise for not finding this funny.

    As for using cigarettes to put “terrorism in pespective”, well, as a smoker and a writer, everyone to his own I say, but really, if I had a belt made of lit cigs, I don’t think I’d do much more than burn my bellybutton.

    I just don’t see what this piece has to do in the humour/satire genre as I feel it’s just an outlet for your pain and rage due to the ‘events’ in question.

  • If we can’t laugh at their attempts to terrorize us, it just means they gained that much more.

    Blaming smokers for the kind of damage to the human race that the terrorists did is like blaming the scientists who invented the jet fuel that the terrorists used.  Those harming us are simply using us as tools to achieve their ends.  Granted, the intention of cigarette manufacturers toward their “victims” is much more kind and generous than was the intention of the terrorists toward their victims, but I like to judge things on their outcomes rather than their intentions.  If you feel no ill will toward those who put addictive substances into your cigarettes, then you’re kinder than I am.

  • Set aside 34 minutes and beware of cognitive dissonance…

  • Oooh, controversy. Gotta love it. All I got on the Google link is a black screen.

  • I think this piece is misplaced under the heading humor/satire. I have not read anything that made me laugh or grin - there were no threads leading to obscure thoughts or conclusions that make a satirical piece funny or humorous, or even a kind of bitter smirk, which is allowed in satire,of course.
