Default "101 Reasons Not to Smoke"

This should almost be in with the jokes. I found an old article with the title "101 Reasons Not to Smoke". It was in the Feb 23, 1968 Herkimer (NY) Evening Telegram. Here are some of the reasons:

13. Because it puts a stop to music, singing, flirting, and all rational enjoyments.

14. Because it is a custom originally imported from the savages.

16. Because when a man says he is going out to smoke a cigar, there's no knowing what mischief he is bent upon, or the harm the monster may be likely to get into.

18. Because the majority of husbands only do it because they know it is offensive to their wives.



I can't believe this was from only 42 years ago- it reads like temperance propaganda. The only good thing is the old lady who wrote this (it must have been an old lady) must have passed on by this time, so she won't be offended by my smoke.

Nothing I could see. But #15 offended ME, so I wouldn't even put it here.

They stopped at #18 and said #19-101 are links to cancer. Weak.

It's on the back of another clipping and I can't read the first column. I'm rather disappointed.

Definitely NOT a PC comment.

As much as the whole PC thing bugs the heck out of me, I'm always amazed when reading old newspaper articles at what was "appropriate" to say in the papers. I am very pleased at how far we've come in recognizing and appreciating diversity in what is really a very short time.

#11: Because how are one's daughters to get married, if the gentlemen are always locked up in separate rooms paying court to their filthy pipes and cigars?
