A woman is just a woman but a good cigar is a smoke

Well with that title I have hopefully offended many of those people who love to impose their values on the rest of us. I do not know who coined the phrase above however it does roll delightfully off the tongue and is just about guaranteed to offend someone. I don't smoke, never have never will, I find the habit rather loathsome. Still, the sorts of people who make their pronouncements on how people should live their lives seem to find smoking an irrisistable attraction. What worries me is what will they set their sights on when they achieve their goal? Drinking? Eating? Fashion? Where will their meddling end? About the only activity that would be safe to engage in for the future would be sex.

I can see the day where it will become compulsory (or at least fashionable) to have sex on a crowded city street, just watch out you don't have a fag afterwards you will probably be charged with smoking in public.

A future growth area will no doubt be the enforcers of laws designed to stop people from enjoying themselves, unless in a government approved manner. The Fun Prevention Police recruiting now!

As for the 'woman' part of this quote, well I have been brave enough tonight, I may tackle that another time
