Smoking to dog droppings

So I found a very interesting setup as I walked home today. There was a used pack of cigarettes on the ground. The label on the Marlboro packet said: "If you decide to quit smoking..." In addition, they made a big large friendly green arrow on the packet. What could this possibly mean? Why would anyone pick up a pack of Marlboro if they decided to quit smoking?

However, the angels parted the clouds of my confusion by directing my attention to was lying right next to the packet. I found the relics of a dog (see picture) that presumably hadn't dropped "as the gentle rain from heaven/Upon the place beneath" and the issue of their being twice blessed is also debatable.

The universe made absolute sense for a fleeting moment.

So whenever you meet a smoker who talks about quitting next week (which they often do for many years before dying of lung cancer), you should suggest the Marlboro way.
