Headline of the day II: Is nothing sacred?


BLOG Gauloises

Back in the days when we were black turtlenecks and hing out in coffee shops [long before espressos and lattes were trendy], we’d buy the occasional pack of Gauloises because, well, all them French existentialists and jazz musicians smoked ’em. That or Gitanes [literally, Gypsies].

So did guys like Serge Gainsborough, one of our favorite directors.

But, alas, no more [even though we’ve given up the evil weed, save for the very occasional puff or too].

From the Guardian:

Smokers fume as France mulls ban on ‘too cool’ Gitanes and Gauloises

Tobacco firms demand clarification of new public health law that could see some brands outlawed for being too trendy
