Three posts in one day? Something must've pissed me off.

You're damn right.

Last post was just a quick blurb to make a stab at the over-zealous and "slightly" fanatical "TRUTH" people. But the article I just read on Yahoo! takes the fucking cake.

What the article says is that some groups are pushing for any movie featuring a person smoking (a cigarette) to be rated R. I often wondered just how far these rabid-smoking-haters would take their fanaticism, but this is just fucking stupid.

A friend, when I showed him the article, said, "Well, it's good in principle."

How? He said that kids see it in movies and think it's cool.

But I disagree. Seeing someone light up in a movie, with no other attention drawn to it, is no different than seeing Aunt Maude or Dad lighting up at home. Kids aren't as dumb as our society tends to think they are. Make a big deal out of people smoking in movies - and then it's glamorous. A sure-fire way to get kids to think something is "cool" is tell them it's taboo.

Please tell me this is not going to go into affect! Please tell me that SOMEONE with some sense is out there and will read this proposition and say, "That's the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard of. Hell no."

Smoking is SO BAD that if you do it in a movie, it will be rated R. Smoking is all that's wrong with the world. Smoking is the reason that children cry, that plants die and the world is coming to an end. Smoking IS the greatest evil.
