Banned (soon) in France, believe it or not!

To be French is to exude tobacco smoke and smells from your very pores, in more ways than one ...

"The word ``cigarette" is French – the diminutive of cigar. "Nicotine" comes from the name of Jean Nicot, a French ambassador who first shipped tobacco home from Portugal in the 16th century."

Even Pepe le Pew, the smooth-talkin Frenchy cartoon skunk, smoked after sex, did he not? Well, maybe not. If he didn't, I'll be he wanted to ...

But a new day has dawned. Or is about to, it says here.
