"Foolish Choice": A Message On A Mailbox In L.A.

Cigarette Street art2 

I snapped this photo of a poster on a mailbox in Los Angeles on 3rd Street/Crescent Heights.  Maybe some of you have seen it before, but I hadn't and it caught my attention. Photo: My iphone

Great pic. I love how in London the cigarettes have that big fat "SMOKING KILLS" label. When I was there with my husband several years ago, I remember thinking the UK government really wanted it's people to quit while back home it's little more than lip service."
Loved that picture. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words and this one says it all.
In Canada they have had rotting lungs for years on the packages.. Has not helped though.:(
This isn't even on the package, just a poster somebody put on a mailbox. I wish it was the packaging!
Perfect image. Now, as you say, if we could only see this on all cigarette packaging.
It is perfect and a perfectly foolish choice.
Thanks for sharing it.

Wow. Ouchie! I'm glad I'm not a smoker; I'd feel like I had to find myself a new mailbox to frequent to avoid the embarrassment! : )
