Interesting post. And funny re your disclaimer to not being into fashion -- I wrote something similar and quite a few other Photo Hunters whose blogs I've visited today did so too. Seems like even though many of us Photo Hunters are female, a large proportion of us aren't much into fashion! :)

The ashes wouldn't be much of a problem because they would biodegrade very quickly. It's the nasty butts that take a while to break down. But if Mary is having to empty her ashtray that often, I don't think she's going to be around very long anyway.
Cute ad, though, and interesting pop culture reference. Love the display font!
