In a tribute to our grandfather’s punishment, a magician has started to kick a smoking habit by breaking a world record.

New York magician Richie Magic is now the world record-holder for “extinguishing, chewing and expelling” 200 cigarettes in his mouth. Using five lit cigs at a time, he put them out IN HIS MOUTH last Saturday. This was his way of kicking a 40-year habit.

Magic said he did the stunt to make a point: When you smoke, your mouth feels, tastes and smells like an ashtray. The stunt caused quite a few blisters in his mouth, he said:

“I’m having a problem speaking to you right now,” Magic said. “I have blisters inside my mouth. My tongue has got a few burn marks.”

  3. I am not a ruealgr mascara-wearer (my eyelashes are naturally dark so I focus my limited mirror time on taming my frizzy hair), but the commercial for FALSIES inspired me to make a purchase but when I asked for the advice of a fellow ULTA shopper, she told me she thought Voluminous was a better product. It was so nice to get point-of-purchase advice! I went for it. I’m no expert, but I’ve liked it so far. AND thanks to Vain Girl for giving my purchase a thumbs up!
