Smoking Baby Makes People Very Angry; He Smokes Anyway
Behold, the smoking baby, Ardi Rizal, a two-year-old Sumatran boy who may go through 40 cigarettes a day if he's feeling particularly stressed. You know the story, dad gives him his first one at 18 months, next thing you know he's hooked and weighs 50 pounds. According to his mom, Diana, "He's totally addicted. If he doesn't get cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick."
This is rather a message for our times, no? (Video after the jump.)
