The joke's on the Australian government

A tobacco company comes up with a slogan and marketing package to explain the plain packaging legislation to its customers. Not what I would even call a joke, just a fairly rational response to controversial legislation.

But some people just can't bear not having the last word.

"Tanya Plibersek, the Australian health minister, said Imperial Tobacco's new slogan was ironic "given that what's on the inside is a product that, if used as the maker intends, will kill half of its regular users"."

Actually, Doll's final report on his doctors study showed that 85% of the smoking doctors' deaths were from the diseases 'caused' by smoking.

But; strangely enough, the report showed that 84$ of the never-smoking doctors' deaths were from those same diseases.
Since there are about 3 times as many never-smokers as smokers, the vast majority of deaths from those diseases are happening to never-smokers!!
