    Well you got to give them some credit. Who doesn’t like toast? I’d give my left nut to smoke one of these delicious toasted cigarettes, and I’m not even a smoker.

    So round, so firm, so fully packed. So free and easy on the draw.
    Lucky Strike means *fine* tobacco. Yes, Lucky Strike means _fine_ tobacco. Lucky Strike Green has gone to war!

    I can’t remember any more. I was a Camels guy in college, anyway. Then I grew up.

    I can’t believe I forgot about “Speed” Riggs. “Forty two, mah mullah mullah gooah gobba dinka dinka Sold to American!” Even got into a few Warner Bros. cartoons.

  9. Dan Draper’s true contribution was to remind The American Tobacco Company that toasting tobacco and advertising that fact was a good idea but, stopped the company from adding butter & jam.

  10. ok, I said something that was blocked, what is up with that?

  11. short version of my “wit” that hopefully will not get blocked:

    Toasting tobacco was a good idea but, luckily they stopped short of adding butter & jam.

    Laxative Strikes means fine turds!!

    Sorry couldn’t help it.

    I buttered my toast right away this morning, but still devoured it in ten seconds before running out the door. No Heaven to speak of. Maybe my problem was that it was already light out.

    “Note: I’ve removed key words from the graphic.”

    You should have left in ‘toasted’ :-)

    The teenage boys’ version of L S M F T…

    Loose straps mean floppy tatas…or something like that.

    “LS/MFT — LS/MFT” – Even Don Wilson on The Jack Benny Show couldn’t have made a better ad.

  18. That was a great video, but one thing keeps bugging me… they never did say what “Lucky Strike” means. Or if they did, I missed it.

  19. Terry says:

    Lucky Strike Means Finnish Tobacco?

  20. swschrad says:

    unlucky strike is when you set your nose hair on fire from the match.

    get somebody sober to torch up that heater.
