Smoking is gay, says new anti-smoking PSA


In what's being billed as the first anti-smoking campaign in history to have any effect whatsoever on teens, this PSA tells them simply that smoking is gay. Yes, it's a parody from The Onion, but it might actually do the trick, seeing as how entrenched the insult "That's so gay" remains in the teen vernacular—so much so that there's a whole non-bogus PSA campaign out there designed to get teens not to use the phrase.
