1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again

like a white cigarette lighter. there's a myth that it brings bad luck to all who use one to smoke up.

ive herd of it. i buy em so no one takes mine.

i have a thing against yellow lighters, well had a thing against them. ive since realized that being superstitious will make you find reasons to not wana use something. i smoked with one before going on a road trip, got pulled over 3 times, almost got searched twice. used on for smoking out back of work, boss caught us. ivesince realized its not the lighter, its being dumb while burning, thus getting caught, and thinking its the lighters fault, instead of mine.

even though i dont believe they are bad luck, i wont buy one, or a 5 pack with one in it.

It's probably related to the "last light of a match" superstition. Some hippy got sniped in 'Nam while smoking up with a white lighter.

The real history to the white lighter myth and why they are unlucky is based on four famous and revolutionary musicians of the second half of the 20th century. Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrex, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain were all left-handed, all died at the age of 27, and all their autopsies reported that a white bic lighter was found in their pockets. This is why it is said that white lighters are unlucky. So if you are 27 and left-handed, don’t use a white bic lighter, you will die.

Women on boats are always bad luck as well. If you are ever on a boat and find a woman, throw her off or you will die.

Bullshit.

White lighters are not bad luck.

Bubblers are not bad luck.

If you get caught when you have one on you, it's probably because you were doing something stupid, not a conspiracy and not bad luck.
