Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for July 20, 1977
Duke: Look, I don't see what you're getting so worked up about! It's not like I'm going to be extracting the laetrile myself! Besides, this apricot plantation's too good a deal to pass up! The whole spread's being let go for less than 300 bucks an acre! Zonker: Duke, who exactly is doing the letting go? Duke: Friend of a friend who's fallen on hard times! Name's Tony Placebo. Zonker: "Placebo"? Duke: Guy's heart-broken, of course, but better me than the banks, you know?
