I suppose Jerry shouldn't be so hard on himself. But then it's the only hard on he'll get without Azmac up his butt.

That wasn't the case in Miami when I grew up. Many we're just too plain smart! Including me, a smoker, QB and Pitcher on the baseball te, out of about 1000 SR's I was also Mr Congeniality and graduated in the top-5% of my class! And several more smokers also graduated with me in the top-5%!

Bit bored today, so I was watching Cops on Spike, Invariably, ALL of the stupid people that were arrested on the show were smokers. I want to watch an episode filmed in MD with the hopes of being able to see ItsAFart. It may not be nice, but watching losers on TV is humorous.

Cops, Jail, all the judge shows, Jerry Springer etc are all priceless. We have Canada's worst diver, like holy F morons. Its too bad the world is highly populated, no where to sent these misfits. Maybe M.D. is the place.

Maybe we could find an island away from everywhere else and send them and all of their tobacco there. I'm sure some poor country in Africa or Asia would be willing to sell us land for this. Then the smokers could smoke as much as they wanted where they wanted and do research proving that the island's radon was responsible for the high rate of lung cancer. They could cremate the dead so they would not have to take up valuable land that could be used to grow tobacco. Anyone caught smoking could be deported. to that island on the third offense. Business owners who allow smoking could restart their businesses there. It is a win-win situation for everybody.

Danny rode the small bus to a special school. EVERYBODY graduated in the top 5% of the class. When they quit eating the cigarette butts out of the urinal (along with that big toilet mint they put in there) and started smoking the ones off the ground, they knew they were grown up.
