Detestable Ciggie Ad


I was browsing today’s boingboing.net entires when I saw this brief posting on a detestable L&M cigarette ad featured in the July 1962 Popular Science – a particularly despicable example of the genre, whose subtext is, "If you love your family, celebrate it by contributing to your own early death", to quote directly from the posting. I say it again, “Smoking kills”!

Celtic went on a rampage by scoring five goals against St Mirren. Georgios Samaras struck home first when he smashed a low shot from 10 yards at goal (4) and then he picked up a pass from Joe Ledley and his harefooted passing to Anthony Stokes on the left ensured that the latter let fly the ball across the face of goal that was tapped in by Gary Hooper (8). After the break, Stokes ripped through the Saints defence on the left wing and crossed for Hooper to score his second goal with a fine turn and shot (53). He then claimed his hat-trick when, 40 yards out, he cushioned a high ball and raced at goal – working a one-two with Stokes and was fortunate to get the break of the ball off a Saints defender before dinking the ball over Saints goalie, Craig Samson (57). Sub Dylan McGeouch capped Saints misery when he waltzed from deep through the red and black jerseys before despatching a low left-foot shot into the net (72) for Celtic’s fifth. This massive win takes Celtic to within four points of SPL leader Rangers.
