Anyone else remember the good old days of cynical humor from National Lampoon? Priceless!
I wish that I had my old issues.

1. MAD did a parody of that cover in the late 90s
"If you don't buy this magazine we'll kill this virtual pet."

At the time, it was funny.

5. You might recall
they also had a quote from William Randolph Hearst that said "Show me a magazine cover with a pretty girl, a baby and a dog, and I'll show you a magazine that sells."


The saccharine-styled illustration that accompanied it showed a baby in a high chair clapping delightedly as a pretty young mom pulled a roasted dead dog with an apple in its mouth from the oven....

9. That cover was Ed Bluestone's finest hour...
I actually found a stack of my old Lampoons in my mom's attic a few years ago. Reminded me once again why i worship the late Michael O'Donoghue (as if I really needed reminding)

12. I kinda' remember.........................
the 70's are a little nebulous to me, there were some fine street pharmaceuticals around at the time. National Lampoon was one of my mainstays in those days, never missed an issue.

What a classic! "Sung" in a Foto Funny by a very large breasted blonde in a boxing outfit, sans the shirt. I subscribed when I was 15...National Lampoon was VERY influential in the development of my sense of humor. Remember the Wife Tasting? Fine varietal wives of California? Oh man, another classic!

14. and the 'Letter from the Editor' the following month?
Edited on Thu Sep-30-04 07:11 PM by mlle_chatte
something along the lines of:
"You assholes. You didn't buy the magazine, so we had to kill the dog. We may have held the gun, but you guys pulled the trigger..."

hi-larry-us
