US Government to put corpses on cigarette packs.

(click images) Also, cancerous lungs and mouths, and lovely tracheotomy blow holes. Collect all nine and win a free CAT Scan!

Gotta love a paternalistic nanny state that takes your money and then spends it on ads that tell you how to think and behave.
