A cigarette named Parliament

While I was rummaging through odd ciggy names, I came across Parliament - a charcoal recessed filter cigarette from Altria. Apparently it's been in existence since the 70s. I wonder how our MPs would have reacted to this brand. Especially Anbumani. Would it have made our netas, the butt of all ridicule? Would it have lent a new meaning to 'Joint Parliament Session'? Would it have added more colour to cliches like 'the zero hour was a drag'? Whether this cigarette would have smoked out your lungs or not, it would have surely lightened up our pun-starved political columns.
