Respectful Insolence

An ashtray that tells it like it is

Too bad I don’t smoke. Well, actually, no it isn’t, given the horrible health effects of smoking. Be that as it may, I wish I had a couple of these to have around the house for when relatives who smoke come over (photo below the fold):

Of course, the Singapore Cancer Society also asks one of the stranger questions that I’ve ever heard:

Hmmm. I’d rather not answer that question, thank you very much.

    When I read the headline on your RSS feed, my first thought was “finally you can communicate with your ashtray without the help of Scientology.”

    “Do you know your prostate” reminds me of the quack (IIRC an MD run amok) who cures disease by talking to his patients’ stem cells (apparently you have to be very polite when doing so; they won’t respond to direct orders).

    “Do you know your prostate??”

    In the Biblical sense?
