It makes sense that Saint Nick would prefer Turkish tobacco; after all, he was from Asia Minor… 😉

    I’ve seen Christmas ads around here with Santa having a joint in his mouth; I’ll bet the progs wouldn’t like seeing him with a cigarette though! LOL

    “Cigarettes are carcinogenic; ban tobacco!”

    “And weed isn’t carcinogenic?”

    “Uh – racist! You hate Rastafarians for whom weed is sacred; Rastas are black, therefore you just hate black people and want to oppress them by denying them the peace and love herb!”

    “Is that why you smoke it, white hipster dude, because it was sacred to Bob Marley?”

    “Shut up!”

    🙂

    Tobacco was sacred to the Indians. But it offends progs, so the Red Man gets the shaft again.

    I think the reason progs hate tobacco so much is because they’d people stayed stoned so that progs make more sense. Tobacco relaxes you and clears your mind, so people who use it think too much. LOL

    That’s a good point! Of course, they used it in pure form, not in chemically-treated paper, and mostly for ritual purposes, rather than recreationally.

    No doubt clarity of mind, which tobacco indeed does aid, is something progs oppose. 🙂

    It’s kind of like ‘Brave New World’ where the Elites kept everyone doped up to the point where no one opposed them. In the novel they said everyone had a ‘right to happiness’—so long as the progs approve of what makes you happy!

      Yep. If ‘soma’ existed, we’d all be on a drip, by now…

    Nah, Santa’s a real he-man. He smokes Lucky Strikes… 🙂

    As far as health goes, Lucky Strikes are good for your training regimen…..

    Funny, children were always encouraged to leave out milk and cookies for Santa, but no-one thought to leave out some smokes. 😉

    Turkish tobacco… just in time for Saint Nicholas Day (Dec. 6)!
