Fortune Cigarettes

Like a Fortune Cookie...

After you're done puffing on a Camel Filter, wouldn't it be nice to know which carcinogen will do you in? How 'bout the latest odds on the Super Bowl after a Marlborough. Maybe some celebrity gossip after unrolling a Virginia Slim...

Or any other insightful comment one could think of, as it simply is not limited to fortunes!

For this to work, the message would have to be somewhat concise, and it would have to be printed in a helical manner around the base of the cigarette. Alternatively, it could be printed on the outside of the fag, but that would probably spoil the surprise.

Also works with Zig-Zag marijuana paper.

       I really like the idea, but I'm not clear on where you're putting the fortune. On the filter? Maybe some heat resistant strip could be run down the center of the smoke. Then you wouldn't know which cigarette has your fortune. I see "instant winner" potential here. "You will enjoy a free pack of smokes. P.S. I peed on your tobacco."

       I think this is kind of smoked in various contests that cigarette makers used to put inside packs -- you'd have to cut open the pack and use a number to win. They also have points now.

       I was thinking, just at the bottom of the white part of the ciggy, right next to the filter. Most people leave this part unburned after they're done.

       How about one that simply says, "You are going to die a slow, gruesome death while your grief-stricken family looks on in horror"? Or would that be too many words?

       Ander in the imortal words of Bill Hicks - news flash non smokers you are going to die too.
