Will New York Times Admit Mental Health Benefits of Cigars?

The New York Times Health section published a piece today on the benefits of low carb diets.

This gives me hope that the New York Times will finally publish a piece on the mental health benefits of cigars.

Every study I have read indicates that cigars are less perilous to one’s mind than Risperdal.

    WHOSE mental health? It simply cannot be doing the surrounding people in a restaurant any good to watch you start champing on a stogie, even without intent to Light Up Nefariously. There are still people suffering heart palpitations from your trip to Portland ages ago….

      Lawhobbit, so you remember that! Heck, I had gone almost two days straight without smoking at that point. Delta was absolutely intolerant when I wanted to fire up as we departed Philadelphia.

    Plus, cigars don’t make a guy’s boobs grow like Risperdal. You can even dump the tobacco out of blunts and replace it with special herbal material and not only does it make your mind feel good, it won’t require you to need a bra. Although, with the modified blunts you might end up with larger man boobs if the herbs make you eat lots of cookies and drink milkshakes.

    So, unless you are a flat-chested transvestite, Risperdal is no good – cigars and blunt spliffs are not so bad, except for the COPD. I don’t know anything about low-carb diets, or any other kind of diet, but I know there ain’t too many carbs in beef jerky. I have seen some guys eating beef jerky that looked like they needed bras, but I’ve seen doughnut eaters that needed bras, too. But if the jerky makes your boobs grow, I think you can sue somebody.

      Dang, Tom, you thought about this subject far more than I did.

      I didn’t know that Risperdal caused guy’s boobs to swell. At least I have a good excuse now when people taunt me for being flat chested.

      I await the backlash your comment will spur from the Tranvestite lobby. But I’m not sure if they are included in the LGBT+++++

        There is a big class action suit over Risperdal causing guys to develop big breasts. Lawyers are running TV ads trolling for plaintiffs. They seem to think that guys who watch old black and white re-runs of Rifleman, Rawhide and Wagon Train are their potential clients.

        I’m guessing that guys who want bigger hooters are trying to score Risperdal. That shouldn’t upset transvestites, although they might be upset about attempts to ban this wonder drug.

          I suppose that Risperdal doesn’t cause women’s breasts to expand? It has so many other toxic effects….

          Now I know what I have been missing by not seeing Rawhide re-runs.
