More Controversy

Boing-Boing has a pretty funny discussion about Airborne, the "fake cold remedy." A couple posters are Dangle fans! They understand that the cartoons themselves cure colds, not the stuff inside the box. Uh-oh, did I say that? See, I can't stop deceiving!

To me the funniest comment, after fifty in a row slamming Airborne for its worthless placebo, was this one:
I always thought Emergen-C worked better! I love that stuff.

And one guy/gal points us to an eye-opening study that says that Vitamin C doesn't work either. Why don't those guys sue Vitamin C? Talk about systematic deception!

Over at Stupidtom dot com, stupid tom gives those Airborne-haters an earful. And one poster even sympathizes with me:

…the cartoonist Lloyd Dangle (Trouble Town) who did the illustration for the Airborne box will be hurt financially I’m sure…kill all the lawyers!

Actually, the lawsuit won't hurt me financially at all. It'll help. Just consider, that prostitute that ex-governor Spitzer hired charged him $5000 for sex before the scandal. Now she can charge a million! Deceptive cartooning works the same way.
