Oh Hang Him, I need a smoke!

Imagine if you were a juror totally hooked to smoking. And if you were told you couldn't smoke until you had decided on a murder case. Wouldn't you just say, oh let's hang him and go out for a smoke?

That's what Phillip Elmore of Ohio says happened to him. It would have been funnier if his name was Phillip Morris. Then the headline could have been "Phillip Morris dies because of smoking habit".
