If You Remember The Phrase ‘L.S./M.F.T.’, You Are Officially No Longer Wearing A Younger Persons Skin

OK, let’s get this out of the way right here at the beginning: Cigarettes are terrible.  They kill people and no one should smoke.  They stink and second hand smoke is hazardous as well.  There’s nothing good about cigarettes.

Whew!  Now that we have that out of the way, the cigarette television commercials bring back some great memories!

Yes, you younger folks, ’tis true…there was a day that cigarettes were advertised on TV.  I guess it was back in the 1970’s or so that the authorities pulled cigarette advertising off the tube.

But when I was a kid, they were all over the television, radio, magazines and newspapers (psst, hey kid, we had things called magazines and newspapers, they were kind of paper-like versions of that thing you have in your hand).

Anyway, one of the phrases that stuck in my head was ‘L.S./M.F.T.’

If you see that phrase, that ‘L.S./M.F.T.’, and immediately know what it stands for, well, you my friend are no longer wrapped in a younger persons skin.

And if you can sing along with the jingle ‘Winston Tastes good Like A Cigarette Should’, well, you haven’t heard that on TV or radio for decades, so chances are you’re a parent or grand parent (or great grandparent!).

Oh, and the ‘L.S./M.F.T.’?  It’s all explained below.  Enjoy the classic commercial….but don’t smoke!
