“The local Goodwill burned down last night. A person died from second-hand smoke”

Goodwill Industries is a second-hand store. It doesn’t necessarily have second-hand smoke, but there are jokes.
 
“Fire guts warehouse, parked Goodwill trucks in San Francisco. Firefighters concerned about amount of second-hand smoke” was posted on FARK.com on June 21, 2007. “Trailer full of donations catches fire at Missouri Goodwill store, creating dangerous amounts of second-hand smoke” was posted on Twitter on November 25, 2010. “Secondhand smoke kills 600,000 a year. How many more must die until we ban cigarettes from being sold at the Goodwill?” was posted on Twitter on November 26, 2010.

If you’re in a Goodwill and it catches fire, be sure not to inhale any secondhand smoke.

Dad Joke of the Day:
I just heard someone was hospitalized after the local Goodwill burned down.  Apparently he inhaled too much secondhand smoke.
