Smokin’ Joe Namath Gives Puffers An Illicit Itch On LIRR Platforms

As numerous studies have shown, smoking cigarettes is one of the coolest activities in the world. The only thing cooler than smoking is taking illicit puffs after a lushy celebrity tells you not to. After a smoking ban on LIRR platforms went into effect yesterday, the Post found a smoker who was lighting up with gusto, despite the audio announcements telling him it was illegal. “Joe Namath just told me I couldn’t smoke, so I wanted to,” a 28-year-old man said at the Hicksville station. No word on whether Katie Couric will track him down and tell him what an awful person he is.

Another smoker called the ban “bullshit,” saying, “They’re already hiking up our prices. I’m still going to smoke.” Sure you could whip out your smartphone and play with shelter kitties, but that’s not NEARLY as cool a way to relieve stress as exhaling formaldehyde [pdf] out of your nose and into your mouth. Did this pantyhose company tank after this ad came out?
