Washroom warnings are the best. In most towns/cities/municipalities here in
BC, it's now a bylaw that any place that serves alcohol post a sign stating
that "Consuming alcohol during pregrancy can harm the baby and cause birth
defects" or shtick to that effect... in BOTH the women's AND MEN'S
washrooms!

Now that cigarette packages have to have big, bold, blatant warnings on
them, most male smokers I know (at least those with a sense of humor) tend
to single out the ones with the "SMOKING DURING PREGNANCY CAN HARM THE BABY"
labels. Obviously, that warning doesn't apply to them! :-)


Your friend and mine,
