Smoking. Another unpalatable truth.

A news report in today’s Times of India, Mumbai filed from Washington about a study conducted in Greece says, ‘Smokers have fewer and flatter taste buds’.

“Honey, how has the chicken turned out?”

“Oh, chomp, great! Can I have more chomp, chomp please?”

Now we have a scientific reason for why smokers make better husbands.

The study is based on an analysis of tongues of 62 Greek soldiers.

The army, as we were taught in school, marches on its stomach. The place where the army eats its meals is called a 'Mess'. Now we know why it doesn’t march on its tongue.
