Morleys


Recommended Posts

I learned new things about Morley Cigarettes!

For instance, there is a movie called "Prozac nation" With Christina Ricci in it. Guess what I saw in the movie! A pack of Morley Cigarettes! They aren't just a 1013 thing! I read tonight here int eh forums that they appear in "The Walking Dead".... and a candy version appeared n the Dick Van Dyke show in 1961! Marlboros used to be called Marleys... I guess it's a play on that??? Here I thought it was only an X-files/Millennium thing!

Is this the new punchbuggy game? Every time you see a pack of Morleys in a film or TV show you get to hit somebody? Or a new drinking game? ( just don't do that during Smoking man's appearances on the X Files.)

I decided to google Morley's which led me to the wiki page on them. WOW! Just thought I"d share. I really thought Morleys were a 1013 production "brand" lol

I was a smoker, and I smoked Marlboros. So I noticed the Morleys in the X Files right away. I noticed the morley butt on the floor right away because the show made a point of it! LOL I thought it was a 1013 thing though, honestly because I'd never seen the fake brand before. Turns out it's a couple years older than me!

I'm betting Santa Claus smokes more then just Pall Malls. What a pathetic image for kids, Santa smoking.

I did eventually figure out that the US area code 555 is reserved for TV/movies; and I did learn that "Alan Smithee" was the pseudonym used for directors who didn't want their real names associated with a movie.

But I didn't know that Morleys pre-dated X-Files until now. At first, I felt quite disappointed about that, but have decided to retro-engineer XF's Cigarette Smoking Man's use of Morleys as signifying a connection to a long list of evildoers. Works for me. fool.gif

After all that has been said about Santa, I highly recommend watching the movie "Get Santa." It is too funny, and especially seeing Santa in a completely different environment, and how the reindeer communicate... signlol.gif
