A Five Year Old's View on Smokingposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 11/16/2006 02:11:00 AM
Q -- What do you think of smoking?
A -- It makes you sick and smelly.
Q -- Why do you think people smoke?
A -- I don't know. They must be bad, like my brother who clapped when Bambi's mother died.
Q -- Did you know today is the Great American Smokeout?
A -- Yes, teacher told us. She says it's a day when people should stop smoking so they will live longer and won't be stunned from society.
Q -- "Stunned"? Do you mean "shunned"?
A -- Right, shunned. Like boys with cooties.
Q -- Is the Great American Smokeout having an effect on Search?
A -- Yes, today I learned that searches on "great american smokeout" are up 43%. "Stop smoking" is up, too.
Q -- Any final thoughts on this issue?
A -- I hope people will quit smoking so I won't have to pay higher health care taxes when I'm older. That's not fair.
