Irony At It's Finest: Hitler Was An Anti-Smoking Nazi

Last night I was watching Cities of the Underworld on the History Channel, when I learned the most ironic piece of information I have ever heard. The episode had to do with the tunnels and bunkers under Berlin, and at one of the commercials, they posted a quick fact that said something to the effect of "Hitler was a committed non-smoker. He offered a gold watch to any of his close associates who were able to quit."

As a former smoker myself, I guess the term "anti-smoking Nazi" is grounded in some historical relevance.
