COS. Caught Out Smoking.

Well caught, Chris Grin

I like how the mannequin at the back seems to be going, "Help! Where am I?? Somebody get me the hell outta here!!"

Clever title. The wife just spent all their money and he needs a drag to settle him down. Good shot.......Sandy

Excellent candid Chris. Cos shopping is now also considered a patriotic activity because it stimulates the economy............... Wink

Thought cos was a type of lettuce???
His shirt with that white band looks like something prisoners have to wear so they stand out...perhaps he's been caught smoking inside before?.

The shocked looking mannequin makes this image for me, it looks as though it's trying to warn the man not to light up just yet!
