This man got lucky.

A new World Health Association report states that you are more likely to die from crossing the road than smoking regularly.

This shock announcement has sent tobacco shares soaring and there is even speculation that smoking may be allowed back in public places.

The report sponsored by Benches and Henson, the biggest cigarette maker in the world shows quite clear results.

In one test experiment a man was given twenty cigarettes to smoke on the hard shoulder of the M25 while the other had to continuously walk across both highways.

Within seconds of starting to cross the motorway he was dead and yet the smoker only suffered a slight cough.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
