Ask Joey C- Dating A Smoker

Dating a smoker asks-

Joey,

Do you date a smoker when you hate it but they are a quality person.  Everything about them is wonderful they just smoke?

Dear “Dating a Smoker”

I guess you gotta ask yourself how hot they are.

You’re not talking about marriage, you’re talking about dating.  So if you’re all good with kissing an ashtray because they are an absolute smoke show in your eyes then go for it.  If you are used to dating sixes I figure the smoker would have to be an eight or better to make the juice worth the squeeze.   If you normally date fours they would have to be a six or better.  You can overlook a little smokers cough if they have a superstar ass or diamond shaped calves or a handsome face.

You have to feel terribly sorry for people addicted to smoking.  Seeing these poor bastards standing outside of restaurants in the freezing cold drizzling weather just to grab a smoke, stink up their breath, ruin their health and waste their money is sad.  No rational person continues to smoke when you take into consideration the countless negatives.

I should add that if kissing the ashtray mouth of the smoker makes you want to vomit you can throw all this advice out the window because I’m thinking there’s just no getting past it for you.

For the youngsters out there that might be reading this-

Don’t start.

It isn’t cool to smoke.  Not one, not “only when you drink”.  It’s really never cool to smoke.  It kills, you stink, your teeth turn yellow, your clothes stink, your house stinks, you blow money you could be using to drive a nicer car, to save for your education, your retirement or nice vacations.  Just do yourself a favor and don’t get started.  After heroin it’s about the next highest thing on the stupid meter you could ever do to yourself.

Cigarette Smokers- Get Mad Says Pete Mondello

Pete Mondello, a lobsterman and a smoker for over forty years  is mad as a hornet and he’s gonna do something about it.

The latest round of tax increases on cigarettes has him pissed off enough to quit he says.  His rationale for quitting isn’t for health reasons, it isn’t because cigarettes stink or any of the other myriad of reasons smoking is a terrible decision.

He’s outraged that the government will give money to bail out Fortune 500 companies who are doling out million dollar bonuses while upping the taxes on his guilty pleasure (cigarettes).  He doesn’t want a single dollar of his money to go to the greedy bastards, he’s hopping mad and it’s enough to get him to stop smoking.

Hey I’m not quite sure if the logic is all that perfect but if it gets any other smokers out there to quit I’m all for it.

Sometimes I Wish I Weighed 250 Pounds

Let me explain.

Yesterday morning I stopped into Dunkies for a bagel at 4:45AM before work.  I don’t normally stop for food in the morning but I just needed something to get me through the morning.  Anyway, as I walked out of the doors there was a guy leaning up against his car and he flicked his spent cigarette to the ground right in front of me.

Is that not one of the most disgusting things you could do?  It irritates me to no end when you catch someone doing it on the sly but this enraged me to think that I was right in front of this guy and he still decided it was alright to flick this thing right to the ground in front of me.

If I was a bigger dude I would have grabbed this guy by the scruff of the neck and forced his nose to within inches of that cigarette left laying on the ground and explained how wrong it is to litter.

Scumbag.
