Nic's nicotine

This Flea-post tagline comes to you courtesy of an Herald Sun article and I run with the story for the same reason they do (see above). Smoking in film, you see, makes smoking look glamorous. Ok, and here is the hard part, then... or rather, then people will smoke because they think it is sexy. Frankly, I am appalled yet bored to learn this sort of intellectual flatulence qualifies as research in some corner of the University of California. Oh, and Dartmouth too but the BBC has no Kidman pics to back up the claim.

Since I quit smoking, I've become far less glamorous. I'm also now a fat slob. And I don't have a real job. But I'm sure that it's the lack of a cigarette hanging out of my mouth that makes me unlike a Hollywood star.
