    “Bunk Oil PFD” only has three hits: And they’re all hits to the morgues of various newspapers that ran this cartoon.Report

      The only references to PFD itself are process flow diagram, and the Permanent Fund Division, who are the peeps in Alaska who manage their oil money. (Which started well after this cartoon)Report
