REPLACE-ALOGUE: CANDY CIGARETTES

Back in the 1970's one thing I that thought was quite swank was candy cigarettes. When the old man had to get a pack of smokes or gas and I got an exciting trip down the candy bar isle often I would pick out a pack.

Try finding them at them 7-11 nowadays.

In the increasingly militant non-smoking culture the US has become these confectionaries are no longer acceptable. Even though nearly all the cool people still smoke, it is somehow wrong for kids to emulate them.

Why did I like candy cigarettes? Sure, they were sugary sweet with a dash of Pepto-Bismol amalgamated in a chalky texture. Yet, what I truely liked was that I was emulating my dad, who at his high water mark was a 3 packs a day guy... back when someone could smoke at work and not be hounded out to an ashtray at the entrance of a building or picnic table in the parking lot.

Back then I would faux-puff away on my candy cigarettes while my dad puffed away on his tobacco ones. When I wanted to save some for later, I would twist the pack into the sleeve of my shirt just like my dad did...talk about a perfect and awesome way to portage cigarettes of any ilk.

So thanks political correct anti-smoking zealots for ruining a childhood memory.

And if you disagree with me you, sir, are worse than Hitler.

The Daily Gut digg this

Have a great weekend everyone.

P.S. I would give my right arm for a hi-res shot of Schneider from One Day At A Time with the pack of cigarettes rolled up in his t-shirt sleeve... the one I found was not good enough...

P.P.S. Have you checkout the Red Eye fan site The Activity Pit? If not you know who else didn't check out that web site? Dolf Lundgren of course, what did you expect me to say?

(h/t to lil_gemini for the Pepto-Bismol riff)
