Feeling lazy?

For those days when one really can't be arsed.

The mechanical sculptures of norweigan artist kristoffer myskja are all somewhat strange, but the strangest of all is the ‘smoking machine’, which literally smokes cigarettes. the artwork features a small device made from brass that most prominently features a ramp of cigarettes. each cigarette is gravity fed onto a holder, where it is lit and slowly smoked by an air valve that is electrically driven. as the gears turn, the cigarette slowly disappears until only the filter is left. the machine then ejects the cigarette and ashes onto the floor below, loading the next one into the holder.
A spokesman for ASH condemned the new invention. "Smoking is the largest single cause of inanimate object cancer in the world. This device should be dismantled immediately, and its constituent parts incinerated to eradicate any risk of third hand smoke residue affecting anyone in a 10 square mile radius".

The machine was last night unavailable for comment.

Looks like a great work of art to me. Says a lot about addiction and the continual habit of the smoker, shows the smoker as a machine who's main purpose is to smoke. Very clever. Love the joke quote that you've put in from ASH too.

@Baz - just fuck off, there's a good chap. Your willie is even smaller than your wit.
