Subliminal advertising

I am about to mark an essay that smells of cigarette smoke. Note that I do not regularly sniff essays. This one came into proximity with my nostrils by accident.

I think there might be a hidden message in there somewhere.

Now, Baron, was it the ordinary carcinogenic cigarette smoke or the other kind designed to put you in a mellow marking frame of mind?

I vote for a smooth blend that encompasses the best of both worlds.

Bumblebee was just given a packet of textas that smell of things related to the colour. There's a shade of orange called 'tulip' that smells vaguely floral but I wasn't aware tulips actually had a smell. Others include 'blueberry muffin', 'pineapple' and 'lilac'. I'm sure it won't be long before there's a version with 'fries', 'nuggets' and 'cola', and indeed, maybe there's an adult pack of scented ink gel pens like 'tobacco', 'mull', 'red wine', 'dark choc'. Do you think your writer might have used one of these?

No, I didn't think so either. And I don't think I'll be using the word 'subliminal' in a post either, judging by the eagerness of your spammy blogbots.
