    What's it worth to ya?

    tell saint peter at the golden gate that you just hate to make him wait but you just had to have another cigarette.


    March 2 — WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - For a 73-year-old Canadian man, 20 months in a smoke-free jail looked just too long, so instead he took 24 months in a prison where he can smoke cigarettes.

    Angelo Foti was sentenced to 20 months for shooting and wounding a man in his backyard who was trying to repossess a snowmobile sold to Foti's son, the Winnipeg Free Press reported Tuesday.

    In court Monday, Angelo Foti was agitated when he realized the sentence would mean he would be in a provincial jail, where smoking is banned, the newspaper said.

    Foti's lawyer pleaded for a 24-month sentence instead, which means the man will go to a federal prison, where smoking is allowed.

    In accepting the longer term, Foti, a dedicated pack-a-day man, ignored the wishes of this family.

    "Dad, they're just cigarettes -- give them up. Quit smoking: you'll be healthier," his son Angelo Jr. said in court. "Just take the 20 months."

    Now that needs to go into Tech Humer. OMG, I have heard of people doing interesting things just to smoke. But going to jail for a longer sentence definately takes the cake for that one.
