Nicoderm denies responsibility
An Indonesian man has been given compensation after a cigarette he was smoking exploded, taking out six teeth. He accepted a payment of 5m rupiah ($535; £335) and all his medical costs from PT Nojorono Tobacco, makers of the brand of cigarette he was smoking. Police are investigating what caused the blast, but Mr Susanto said he would try to give up smoking now anyway.

Holy crap!

I imagine it would be a smoking deterrent.

Don't you mean "Holy Smokes!"?

Eh, I've been saying "holy smoke!" too much. I should have saved it for now.

Yeah, if having a smoke blow up in your face isn't motivation, I am not entirely sure what is. LOL

Whoops. Those cigarettes were supposed to go to a small town in South Carolina...
