Bad For Your Health

The sign said, “NO SMOKING IN WORKSHOP”.

Oscar always thought that sign was ironic.  After all, they were making cigarettes for export!

He looked around.  His co-workers were still on break, so in defiance, he lit-up and took a deep breath of smoke.  It felt so wonderful to rebel!

It took a few months before his vision became blurry.  A few months later, he lost control of his muscles.  Within a year, he was quite dead.

How was Oscar to know that the cigarettes were the Government’s secret weapon against the nation soon to be invaded?
