on dumb ass public service announcements...

so since the new year, Kmart pharmacies has been doing these PSAs to help people with their resolution weight loss. This guy will ask a pharmacist some question about weight loss, and they'll answer it. This one just aired:

Q: Does quitting smoking cause you to gain weight?

A: Oh no, no, no, of course it doesn't. Actually, its the nicotine in cigarettes that heightens your metabolism. So when you quit smoking you just burn fewer calories. But if you do more exercise or eat better, you won't gain any weight. So just exercise more if you're worried about it.

Ummm, sorry... you know what with my dual english degrees and all, maybe I have a bad command of the language, but... isn't that a yes?
