How to stop your baby from picking up smoking - keep your cigarettes at least 4' above the ground.

On one hand the baby should stop smoking for health reasons, but on the other hand.... smoking makes him the coolest fucking toddler in nursery school. They should get him a mini smoking jacket.

But he told us what was disturbing was that the parents motivation to get Aldi to quit wasn't stemming primarily from an understanding of the risk to his health, but more from the cost of spending four dollars a day -- Aldi smokes an average of 40 cigarettes daily.

Woah, woah, woah..... 40 cigs a day for $4??
Looks like I'm going to Indonesia to pick up a pack of smokes.

You know, I understand that Indonesia is a different culture than ours, and I can accept that they have different views, but that is a 7 layer burrito of fucked up. Just sayin'.

In any Western country the child would be taken away by child services in a heartbeat. And should be.

And maybe a nice case of dysentery or whatever else they got going over there. Very Happy
