More Turkey and Smoking


Ah, Thanksgiving dinner.  A time for stuffing yourself, a time for smoking.

According to Food Editor Dorothy Malone, smoking after meals is not enough!  You must smoke during the meal as well!

Tomato soup?  Don’t mind if I do!  And a Camel after, sure!  Waldorf Salad?  Yes!  A Camel after…um, okay.  Turkey?  You bet!  Seconds?  Not before that Camel!  Dessert?  Pie or Cake?  Here’s a Camel with that too!

Camel’s “ease tension” (God knows, family breeds tension!) and “clears your palate”.  Smoking gives you a sense of “ease and well-being!”

Now that you’ve pushed away from the table and unbuttoned your pants, here’s a Camel! Says Salesman Ferguson, “The best meal I ever ate would be a disappointment if I couldn’t enjoy Camel’s!”  He’s a salesman – HE KNOWS.

One recommendation – open all the windows or eat outside.  Unless you like yellow walls and pre-scented curtains.

For those who have asked:

If you would like a Team Puddles Badge for your blog, shoot me a comment or email.  I disabled right clicks on my blog – and I can’t figure out how to “undisable” it!!  I’ll be glad to email it to you.

Years later they discovered that smoking actually masks the sense of taste... I do remember my dad smoking during dinner, when I was quite a bit younger!

Smoking is the bane of everyone's existence especially for us baby boomers. Daddy Ron's single parent Mom smoked at the breakfast table every morning...noooo...why did the smoke always find me? Smoke magnet...that's what I felt like...aaagh!

You know - my parents actually were that way about Marlboroughs. Unbelievable, isn't it? As a kid, I always bugged them about why they'd ever started smoking, and they told me that people used to think that it was good for you!

Very funny post but it also makes me wonder what crazy habits we all have now that will be proven to be terrible for us in the future!
