With smoking bans coming soon in the next two months in Scotland. I wonder if The Sunday Post will let Grandpaw and Paw Broon give up their pipes since it's now becoming a health hazzard and may encouage children to smoke just like Desparate Dan used to do. Long ago in the Dudley D Watkins area, Hen and Joe used to light up ciggerettes as well (more regualry during the early years to the end of war). Also Maggie and Daphne have lit up in a few occasions in the 40's and in the 60th anniversary book in 1996, There was a strip from 1939 which featured Horace and the Twins puffing cigars. Things have really changed from those days. I'm not too sure about Maw. Will Paw and Grandpaw give up

PC gone mad I tells ya - and I'm a non smoking Scot - still theres worse Scottish stereotypes they could undertake like partying and drinking too much,taking drugs, moaning about the weather, eating fatty food and dying of a heart attack - seriously its a good question will be interesting to see what happen.
