European Exhortations to Stop Smoking

I’m not unfamiliar with the warning labels on European tobacco products. On each of my trips to France, I got many a laugh out of “FUMER TUE [smoking kills],” but the warnings from Iceland are evien funnier!

It’s even more hilarious because it’s in English!

You just can’t make this shit up. Of course, I do think this particular label is inaccurate. After all, smoking causes apparent aging of the skin. The actual process of aging is the same for everyone, as it is determined by time. Can one person go through a year faster than another? A year is a year is a year, so fuck the European Union. Smoking may make my skin look like hell, but it won’t age me any faster.
