Blend 54, Where Are You?

I was at the store in the express line, where they have the cigarettes, and I saw they have a new brand of Marlboro. It's called Marlboro Blend No. 54.

54? Did they focus group the number 54 with cowboys and find that's exactly the number that would seduce them into giving up their lungs? Man, I wouldn't smoke 48, 51, none of 'em. Just 54.

I'm picturing a cigarette scientist somewhere, emptying tobacco from one test tube to another until, Eureka! My 54th blend is the best. No reason for another!

Really, so they're still coming out with new brands of cigarettes? Haven't people basically wised up about cigarettes. They're a death trap.
