ufo-ria

a small red primitive spacecraft twirls in place above the sidewalk observing the local denizens come and go from the corner café...
tired, harried humanoids enter and shortly emerge looking revived and slightly more energetic - not quite euphoric, but definitely somewhat more resplendent under floating smoke-ring halos...
tiny aliens decide to hang around longer to absorb planet paris culture, eventually becoming just another curious parispheric objet populaire...

Is this to remind me that the cigarette prices went up by 6% yesterday?

It is a strange symbol for cigarettes. Does it represent a warning or some kind of killer object?

perhaps they emit some invisible puffs of subliminal interplanetary haze to engulf strickened smokers and induce frenzied nicotine cravings... but then again they can get that by just walking by another smoker!

a good topic for you, Adam, to investigate - all these odd symbolic objects dotting the urban landscape that have been around so long that people forget their origins!

and time to stop smoking, Peter!!
