Maybe idiot smokers will think twice before tossing butts

A man barely escaped serious injury Thursday after a lit cigarette he tried to toss out the window while driving across the Bay Bridge blew back in and ignited the vehicle, according to the California Highway Patrol.

So I'm not supposed to be angry about people throwing burning embers on to the road in front of my car?

On the plus side, this story reminded me of the scene in "The Big Lebowski" when the Dude throws the joint out the window, only it's closed, so the joint falls onto his crotch. Wackiness ensues.

Also, I think it's funny that someone with pictures of monkey blow jobs on their blog is ripping on my blog.

i mean, c'mon. What are the chances of getting hit with a LIT cigarette on the freeway? (ok, ignore the fact that it is littering.)

On a different note, what do you have against two adult monkeys pleasuring each other consensually?

GRRRRRRR


Anyway, thanks for the link. ;o)

Ignore the fact that its littering? Let's ignore the fact that its a fire hazard for a sec (well, mostly during the summer around here), and get to my pet peeve which is finding cigarette butts all over the beaches, parks, sidewalks, everywhere. People think they are paper and small so they'll just disintegrate. Cigarette filters are made of cellulose acetate tow and take decades to break down.
