Thank you smokers....



BAT (British American Tobacco) earnerd higher pre tax profit for the first 9 months this year RM 865 million on top of 3.13 billion revenue.

Now who said the economy is in recession? If purely judging from cigarettes sales, it could mean economy is going pretty well.

BAT ought to publish a full colored page on major papers, thanking their customers:

"Keep on smoking....and you can redeem the following gifts:"

1. cancer of the bladder, esophagus, larynx, lung, mouth, throat
2. chronic lung disease
3. chronic heart and cardiovascular disease
4. die 13 to 14 years before nonsmokers.

Truth is non smokers (2nd hand smokers) die way before smokers themselves....2nd hand smoking is way more harmful in this case.
so correction in the gifts should be :

4. Death of loved ones in family who 2nd hand your smokes.
