> Jules Feiffer's most famous cartoon caption is:
> I used to think I was poor.  Then they told me I wasn't poor, I was
> needy.  Then they told me it was self-defeating to think of myself as
> needy, I was culturally deprived.  Then they told me deprived was a bad
> image, that I was underprivileged.  Then they told me underprivileged was
> overused, that I was disadvantage.  I still don't have a dime, but I do
> have a _great_ vocabulary.
> The above cartoon is said to have been published in 1965, but I don't have
> any details of the place of publication.  Is anyone able to supply such
> details?
