KEEP YOUR PICTURES OFF MY CIGARETTES
KEEP YOUR PICTURES OFF MY CIGARETTES:
“On six packs of beer they will put pictures of gosh-awful ugly women who you will be tempted to sleep with if you drink the contents.
Ice cream containers and packages of steaks will have photographs of cottage-cheese thighs and clogged arteries.
Table saws will have pictures of severed fingers and New Year‘s champaigne will have images of crippled livers.
The possibilities are endless. The government has decided that it has the power to put images on the packaging of consumer products in order to protect the public health and the public good. So, it seems natural to speculate a bit on where this new-found power will take us.
Yes, cigarettes sicken and kill people. But, then, a great many things sicken and kill people.”
