    When I was a poor college student, I used a Kiwi shoe polish tin. Worked great!

    (Cue the griefers who will screech that these ideas only enable smokers who will go on to kill millions of innocent people with their secondhand smoke.)

    I always use an old Altoids tin. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

    Portable ashtrays are very archaic things, aren’t they? Still, those are interesting little things. Junior is in for a nasty surprise if he goes digging in Aunt Smokarina’s purse…

    Talking about improvised ashtrays: long ago, using a pocketknife, I cut the lower part of a beer can into a small ashtray, with three equidistant cigarette rests around the rim. For as redneck as it is, it worked quite well.

    This is ridiculous people. You are asking why cigarettes are not illegal but suicide is? What about alcohol? Guns in the USA? Smokers do have the right to smoke. I agree we should use our ashtrays. Yet somehow magically, no cars come without an ashtray. When we walk down a city street, it is legal to smoke for us, yet again no ashtrays. Does society really expect to carry ashtrays on as at all times? Where do we keep these when they go into our workplaces? I’m sure the slightest sniff of it by a non-smoker, and a formal complaint would be lodged. Yet I’m sure none of you have ever littered before. Never have spit out your gum, or left a newspaper on a bus or subway.

    Could be ashes for something *else*

    Bimbo Butterkeks is one hell of a porn name.

    If you’ve got the audacity to be smoking somewhere that it’s obviously not encouraged (since there are no ashtrays), why not just go all the way and throw your waste on the ground? If you’re going to be an asshole, there’s no point in half-assing it.

    Thanks, Zan. Your cheque is in the mail.

    I originally read that as Portable cookies disguised as ashtrays, which of course is an outstanding idea.

    #5: Smoking while walking down the street is completely legal, yet there aren’t ashtrays every 30 feet most of the time, and thowing cigarette butts on the ground is littering. Smoking while camping is also legal, and if a smoker doesn’t properly take care of the refuse, it can start forest fires. Just because there’s no readymade ashtray doesn’t mean that smokers don’t have a right to smoke.

    Bimbo is an actual bakery, based in Mexico but with wide distribution on the west coast.

    They make bread and snack cakes and cookies. Can’t say if they make “butterkeks” though.

    I highly doubt smokers will use these. Cars come with ash trays yet I see cigarettes flicked out the window all the time.

    Freshy @5, “If you’re going to be an asshole, there’s no point in half-assing it.

    You should carry a pocket mirror, consider it an irony detector.

    Vespa @#9 Cars come with ash trays yet I see cigarettes flicked out the window all the time.

    Yes, but realize that that is the same guy who triple parks and doesn’t hold doors for you. The cigarette is just another way for that guy to absentmindedly show he’s too important to be social.

    Hmmm, I can think of many things that could be stored in such a container. Too bad their web site doesn’t show what the container looks like when it’s open.

  17. The Unusual Suspect says:

    Cars don’t come with ashtrays.

    (Though it may be an option offered by some, likely non-U.S. manufacturers.)

    I’m all for personal liberties, but how is smoking legal, but attempted suicide isn’t?

    When you put warnings as large as they are (esp. in Europe) the person is full aware of how insanely detrimental to their health this is going to be.

    It’s like killing yourself, but legal.

    Granted so is 98% of all fast food, but that’s a different story.

    Did anyone take a look what the word Bimbo means?
    In German, ‘Bimbo’ is a racial slur referring to a male black person, about equivalent to the English ‘jigaboo’, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bimbo_(disambiguation).
    And Butterkeks is the good old http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leibniz-Keks bisquit.
    Together it is a bit confusing to me as a german.

  20. The Unusual Suspect says:

    Without starting a stats war (for which I am admittedly unarmed) conversations I have had with actuaries lead me to believe that there are plenty of legal activities with a greater death rate than smoking.
