What's wrong with my fags?

#1
I noticed that my usual brand of cigarettes were going out mid way through my smoke over the last few weeks, so i e-mailed the manufactures to find out what was going on.

It turned out that new E.U rules have intervened as a whole regarding all fag brands under new E.U fire rules!

**Extract of e-mail reply**

Dear Sir

All cigarette manufacturers (including Imperial Tobacco UK ) have had to modify their cigarette paper as part of an EU wide fire safety initiative.

This may mean that in rare circumstances, a cigarette may extinguish during the normal smoking process. You can be sure that all our cigarettes remain the same great quality and taste you have come to expect from our brands.

Hope this information helps.

It's not just the paper, but the reduction in additives and formaldahyde and acetone aswell, chemicals that were add to make the cigarette light more easy and prevent it going out. Actually a cunning ruse by cigarette manufacturers to get you to smoke/waste more cigarettes.

If you bought a packet of additive free cigarettes, such as Natural American Spirit (or even rollies for that matter), you would find that they have a propensity to go out aswell if you don't keep drawing on them regularly and often

If you look at a cigarette paper whether roll-up or t'other you'll see very fine blue lines which is the salt-petre to help make them burn..

No, Auld-yin, don't WAH it! This is a bona fide news topic within the smoking community!

The E.U godfather has now cunningly engineering our fags to go out midway though your smoke in the hope you just toss it away and light another one up! ....... Cant you see the bigger picture .... ££££ in more profit?

BTW, E.U godfather does not like incandescent light bulbs ..... so he banned their manufactor in favour of his preferred florescent brand!

Just wait until he tampers with your whisky! :)
