Don’t smoke, you dirty, lazy, disgusting fool

Cut-it-out-you-fool

I say, old bean, adjust your monocle toward this corking anti-tobacco billboard from 1915. Erected in Zion, Ill., it puts even the bluntest "Truth" ads to shame by questioning the very manhood of local smokers and dip-chewers. "Cut it out, you fool," the ad says of the "dirty, filthy, disgusting, degrading habit." It's like getting slapped with a dueling glove. I'm guessing life in Zion was leisurely enough that passersby had time to stop and read all that stuff. Black and WTF via Buzzfeed.
