In order to carry a carton of duty-free cigarettes when flying into Hong Kong, you would need 20 people.
Each carton of cigarettes consists of 20 packs.
Each pack has 20 sticks.
The duty-free allowance for cigarettes into Hong Kong is 19 sticks per person.
For a smoker desperate enough to bring in a carton of duty-free cigarettes, he would need to look for 19 other passengers and seek their help to carry for him a pack of cigarettes each. And since each pack of cigarettes consists of 20 sticks, each person would need to take one cigarette out from his pack of 20 and dispose of it.
Stupid isn’t it?
Of course the 20 extra sticks would make one new pack but since duty-free allowance into Hong Kong is only 19 sticks per person, there will always be one extra stick.
I supposed you can always look for a smoking room in the airport and just smoke away that 20th stick.
Or smuggle it into Hong Kong, and find your way to Leung Chun-ying’s office and shaft that cigarette up his ass.
Leung Chun-ying is Hong Kong’s current Chief Executive, a stooge of Beijing and at best a running dog and ass-kisser, in short, someone retarded enough for allowing such idiotic duty-free allowances to be enacted into law, so brain-damaged is he that he actually deserves more than just a cigarette to be shafted up his ass.
Note that in this region, most countries allow in 200 duty-free cigarettes, 50 cigars or 250g tobacco. Japan and Vietnam are the most generous, allowing 400 cigarettes or 100 cigars or 500g tobacco. Hong Kong’s duty-free allowance for tobacco is: 19 cigarettes or 1 cigar or 25g cigar or 25g other manufactured tobacco products.
I don’t smoke cigarettes, only pipe and cigars, and, honestly, I can’t be bothered to buy one stick of duty-free cigar at the airport’s duty-free shop prior to boarding my flight. Does Leung Chun-ying think I have nothing better to do or what?
Singapore does not permit any duty-free cigarettes or any tobacco products to be brought in. Ditto Brunei.
Hong Kong government hasn’t got the balls to do what Singapore and Brunei do but they are stupid enough to fuck with you. I understand that the Hong Kong government is trying to discourage smoking and judging from what seems to be an increase in smokers in Hong Kong nowadays, based on what I’ve observed during a recent weekend visit, it is only correct to assume that the Leung Chun-ying is desperate, but is this the right way to go about suppressing smoking?
I think Mr Chief Executive deserves that cigarette up his ass!
That’s him in the picture above, puckering his lips with delight.
I wonder if he prefers menthol or regular? Filtered or unfiltered.
