Saturday Smoking Lounge: More Doctors Smoke Camels & Frank Croons For Smokers Only

When I was in college, I smoked Camel straights. Some ill-informed, nervous- Nelly members of my college newspaper staff predicted that if I kept that up, I wouldn't live to see 30. Their pusillanimous predictions were monumentally wrong. Having just discovered this scientific evidence, I now fully understand why:

More Doctors Smoke Camels Than Any Other Cigarette!

And now sit back and enjoy a Camel while viewing this clip featuring one of the vintage Cole Porter songs from Frank Sinatra's Music for Smokers Only album.

I am not making that up. If you look closely, you can see the album cover in the background during the first 30 seconds of the video. Frank never released a Music for Drinkers Only album. It was just assumed that all Frank's fans were drinkers.


  1. Oh my gosh, seeing that doctor smoking about killed me! LOL There are times when I still get hit with those sudden and intense "nic fits" and seeing that video caused one. :D

  2. I had a grammar school friend and prep school friend, an Italian named Jimmy -- who is now a lawyer for the IRS-- and his old grandfather, who we used to call "Papa Casino," -- a Sicilian who used to make his own Italian sausage (which was wonderful) told us ---"I started smokin' at 10 -- and I smoked Camels that ain't got no filters -- the toughest kind"

    As I recall, papa Casino lived well into his 90s.


Comments invited, however anonymous commentors had better deal directly with the issues raised and avoid ad hominem drivel. As for Teachers' Union seminar writers -- forget about it.
