Snake Oil

I can't recall exactly when I came up with the idea for this cartoon, but it was many years ago.
Ever the industrious get-up-and-go chap that I am I only just drew it last month.
It is in this week's Spectator magazine.

I reckon there must have been some news story at the time about alternative treatments and medicines becoming available on the National Health Service.

I originally was going to have just the standard doctor type coming up with the line, but decided to try a new-age hippy type character.
I dunno now. Is it over-egging the gag a bit?
Ah, well- it sold, so I should let it go.

  1. It's a good gag. Think the hippy works well.
