What planet are they from? - Part 43

The British Medical Association (BMA) has made proposals to the Department for Health to ban packs of ten ciggies in an effort to cut teenage smoking.

Even I know that the major reason for purchase of tens in the UK is for rolling hash spliffies. Ten Marlborough Lights and two packs of Rizla Orange IS the weekend for many young people. Sigh.

There's another reason:

My wife has been trying to give up smoking for the past 10 years. Twice a month is par for the course to date. I have found it prudent to keep several packs of 10 hidden at all times so that, when the current attempt fails - usually at about 7:30 pm on a Sunday, or similar out-of hours time - I do not have to drive 3 miles to the nearest town searching for urgent cold turkey relief.

That's a true story (as Michael Corleone said to Kay)
