Maybe if they made cigs wear helmets they would be safer? I'm just trying to help here.

Looks like the Bears have been using a lot of transfat to fry their opponents. Can you say "Kentucky Fried Seattle"?

I mentioned Rex Grossman earlier in the year and I got a few chuckles from Buz. So how's Rex looking now Buz?? Chicago people kicking ass on Seattle is nothing new if you have been around MO for any length of time!

Yeah. I was a kid in the 50s and we all knew that cigarettes were addictive and could kill you. They even had freaking medical doctors hawking cigs. Now they pretend it was some sort of conspiracy. I mean, really, who is stupid enough to believe PR releases from ANY industry? Advertising in general is just a constant stream of lies and exaggerations.



The funniest part of all this is the fact that the States have been spending all those tobacco settlement billions on everything else BUT healthcare for smoking related diseases. Wasn't that the justification for the lawsuits.... to recoup healthcare costs? In a couple of States the healthcare bureaucracies are suing their own State to get even some of the money.



Typical dogooder hypocrites.

I quit smoking ten years ago. I suffered two weeks of irritability. Do a Google search on "heroin withdrawal" and compare.

they don't need to advertise. every smoker hanging around the front entrance is advertising for them. If you want to smoke (or try it out) you will. Walk into any store and ask for a pack of *picks randomly* and if it doesn't taste good the person will just try the next brand. Same thing with drinking. Your friends do it, thus you want to too. I would be frankly be amazed if watching these retarded TV spots actually prompted anyone to take up this other deadly vice.

Tobacco advertising has been the lifeblood of motor racing for ages and racing has suffered without it.



Look how thin most of the grids are these days. Nearly every series (except Nascar) has one or two contenders and a bunch of backmarkers.



Don't bite the hand that feeds you race fans.
