Maybe I won't smoke

german cigarettesThis one's from my buddy Rob in Germany.

I am amazed at how seriously the German government takes the hazards of cigarette smoking. (Translation: "Cigarette smoke contains benzene, nitrosamines, formaldehyde and lead. Mmmm, makes you want to try one, huh?!) And notice that the warning takes about half of one side of the package.

You can see more of his photos here.

Update: check the comments.

Check out some of these beauties off the Canadian packages. Also about half of the label, I believe. My favourite is the mouth disease one. Makes you wonder why anyone even picks one up?

My favorite from the UK (also about half the size of the carton) was "Smoking causes a slow and painful death"
