Well now, little Missy, Skoal, Copenhagen, and a few others leave that
white circle in a fellers hip poket. Never heard of designer snoose though.
And it's harder to quit chawing and dipping than smoking. In the mouth the
nicotine goes straight to the brain, in smoking it has to filter up through
the lungs first. Smoking is a known cause of lung cancer, among others,
chawing and dipping just makes your teeth, gums, jaws, and tongue go
cancerous and get removed. I have dipped and chewed both and can state with
absolute certainty that neither tastes like dates to me.
