Treasury Ministry has announced iIncreased excise tax on cigarettes from 1st January. It expects to enrich state coffers by an addiitonal 359 million zotys (about $112 million) next year. A packet of 20 cigarettes will be about 60 groszy dearer.

I see fags in Poland at from 10.50 to 11.50 zł. What are they in the UK?

Why do Americans care about cigarette prices in Poland? It's not like he's going to move there, is it.

Maybe he has them sent over?
But more than likely he is running through the dictionary and trying to make a thread about each word, so we are as far as 'F'...

Do youz use the word 'fag' for cigarettes in the U.S.?

Most American don't give a hoot in a rain barrel about Poland -- er, um, uh...aint't that the place with those nice windmills and tulips and things?! That's what the more educated Yanks say.

Bit confused! Is it £31 for a carton of 5 packets. In Poland and US therre are two 20-count packets per carton.
If in the UK it is 5, then ciggies in the UK would be just over twice what they are in Poland. Is that right?

it's the same in Poland and UK

That's what I thought all my life, and of course it's true, but I've just finished reading Bound For Glory by Woody Guthrie, where I found, in chapter thirteen,

'"Schwartz, my name. Goddam this bull tobaccer!"
I told the other three men, "Believe I'll roll me one of them fags, if ya don't mind, an' then go out on top an' watch the tourists go past." '

btw Polonius, you use British English spelling (sort of) and British expressions. What's your UK angle?

bull tobaccer

Bull tobaccer here means Bull DUrham -- dry tobacco flakes for rolling ciggies in a smally pull-string canvas bag (cowboys kept it in theiri left-hand shirt pocket with the string tab (something like the teabag strign) hanging out. Dunno how they coild roll 'em omn horseback in the slightest breeze, as the dry flaky backy would blow away. Even in a room it was hard as hell to roll one. The stringier Bugler and Target are preferable anytime.
