And to think there's a whole generation out there that will never know the meaning of L.S.M.F.T.

Not those packs. Lucky Strike Green went to war and was declared missing in action. (Apparently the green ink for the packages was needed for something military; the company made a big deal with the slogan "Lucky Strike Green has gone to war," and switched to white packs. After the war, when presumably the green ink became available again, they stuck with the white packages.)

Yeah, I seem to remember something 'bout that. The name must be have cachet, somehow, even in Iraq today.
