smoking gun

(another example of a gun used in design by designers who most likely don't use guns.)

I used to have a cigarette holder al-la-Hunter Thompson back when I smoked. I smoked unfiltered so this meant I could hold the ciggie in my teeth without getting tobacco in my mouth.

This holder neither looks functional nor cool looking.

I suspect the "artist", like many is self-discribed as "Tortured" and is Starving.

I wonder how long before this is banned in CA, MA, DC etc.?

I mean a cop might mistake it for a gun and shoot some poor guy who just wants a smoke.

...and could you get through TSA with it?

"...and could you get through TSA with it?"

Not in Canada.

Maybe the artist is saying that smoking makes about as much sense as putting a gun in your mouth.

Yeesh, they even modeled it(crudely) on the Desert Eagle. Yeah, definite non-shooter there.

I agree with the first anonymous. It's likely meant as an anti-smoking message.

Still, it wasn't very well done. It doesn't even have a trigger!

I went to thinkgeek today and saw this: http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/gear/a3ed/

First thing I thought of was a NYC nightclub and a couple of Vice detectives.

Judas Priest, that is incredibly stupid. Has to be a non shooter because any shooter would get the willies at the mere idea of putting the barrel in the mouth.

Dumb artists striving to make a serious point about something they know nothing about.
