Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for May 16, 1993
Mr. Butts: (This is important. Better see if I can get through it with a straight face.) Kids! Leading brands are now 40 cents off! Your cigarette company cares about you! Hey kids! Tired of people telling you smoking is dangerous, as if that news is some sort of hot flash? Well, check out the excerpts from this textbook, published in 1885! That's right, medical researchers have been whining about the known effects of smoking for more than 100 years! So next time someone tries to "educate" you with the latest research, just say, "Hey, get a life - that's ancient history!" Boy, will they be red-faced! Happy puffs!
