Public Choaking

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable weekend in Cincinati. We went to Paramount's King's Island (can't just call it King's Island anymore) where we got to enjoy the many rides, greasy food, and what I call PUBLIC CHOAKING.

For those of you who don't know what public choaking is, I will clarify. Public choaking is where smokers show absolutely no regard for the people around them and light up their damn cancer sticks. I don't smoke and I don't appreciate someone else forcing that crap into the air that I breath.

Anyway, let me tell you about the public choaking I experienced in Paramount's King's Island. Anyone who has been at an amusement park knows about the lines for the rides. The line for the Outer Limits was about 2 1/2 hours when we were there. We didn't ride the Outer Limits but we did stand in line for an eternity for The Beast. Anyway, my wife and I are waiting patiently in line when the person in front of us lights up one of his damn choakers. Not only that, but I was down wind of this yahoo.

Now, with all that is known about the harmful effects of second hand smoke, why would someone do this? My theory is this: Perhaps there is a chemical in cigarettes that we don't know about. This chemical causes people to turn into discusting, smelly, rude, and obnoxious slobs with little or no regard for the personal well-being of people around them. If these people really did have any concern then they would smoke in a closet away from us who have decided that the cigarette companies are not going to own us!
