look up any word, like blumpkin:
When you swallow an aspirin and immediately feel better even though you know it won't really kick in for another half hour.
*takes an aspirin* "Aaaahh."

"You know that's not gonna kick for like an hour, right?"

"Yeah, but just taking it makes me feel like I really did something about this headache, ya know?"

"Ahh, the pill-cebo effect."
