(I've split it up into several lines to make the gloss more readable. Also there's no cigarettes smoked by Asta speakers, so they're "smoky leaves" here)

This was all about cigarette-smoking fish.

Ah, you see, my use or non-use of hyphens is always intentional. I'm pretty sure the fish-smoking cigarettes are banned by the FDA, unless you take your fish extra carcinogenic.

Please do not throw your cigarette butts on the ground!!! The fish come out of the sea at night to smoke them, and we're trying to help them quit. Thank you.

Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.
