Chinese Super athlete

A 50-year-old runner, known as “Uncle Chen,” accomplished the breath-taking feat at the Xin’anjiang Marathon in Jiande, China running the entire 26.2 miles in about 3 hours and 29 minutes. As a result, Uncle Chen placed 574th out of around 1,500 runners, as seen in a certificate posted on the “Chinese Facebook” site – Weibo. So what? There were 573 other runners that beat him. Ahh, but none of them could beat him if they had been smoking the whole time. Uncle Chen is the Chinese equivalent of the Marlboro man. He lit up a cigarette at the starting line and kept on puffing going nearly every step of the way. Images of the chain-smoking athlete are lighting up Weibo as fans praise his respiratory fortitude. Uncle Chen completed the entire race while either smoking or lighting up a cigarette.

This isn’t Uncle Chen’s first rodeo. In 2018, the tobacco-loving marathon man finished the Guangzhou marathon in 3 hours and 36 minutes. He also completed the 2019 Xiamen marathon in 3 hours and 32 minutes, proving that not only is smoking not hindering his performance, but it may actually be improving it. How would you like to be one of the 900 runners that Uncle Chen passed while smoking or even lighting this next cigarette. Little else is known about Uncle Chen or his running prowess, but event organizers confirmed that smoking while competing isn’t against the rules – probably because it slows most people down. Needless to say, social media fans were impressed that he managed to finish the race while smoking, but even more that, he went three and one half hours without running out of cigarettes. However, others accused him of harming other competitors with secondhand smoke. Whining losers. 

If you got ‘em, smoke em.

American Drugstores: Why do drugstores make sick people walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Quitting smoking is the easiest thing I’ve ever done.
I’ve quit hundreds of times.

A woman notices a man smoking and decides to educate him. “How many packs of cigarettes do you smoke in a day?” she asks.
“Three,” he says.
”How much does each pack cost?”
“Ah, around six dollars.” “How long have you been smoking?”
“10 years, why?”
“Well, did you know that if you would save all that money from cigarettes, you could have bought a Lamborghini by now?”
 “Wow,” the man exclaims. “Do you smoke?”
“No,” the woman responds.
“So… where is your Lamborghini?”
