What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger.
I remember a regular column in the late and greatly lamented National Lampoon called Humorrhoids. Wow, hadn't thought of that in years.
@TrickyRicky- I'd forgotten that too until you reminded me. Man, how I loved National Lampoon back in the day!
@Stilt and @Tricky,Did you two buy that one issue so they wouldn't shoot the dog?
@JustaJeepGuy- Absolutely. I had to buy issues individually, my parents didn't necessarily have the same sense of humor that I did in those times. I also remember a Chris Miller story called "Night of the Seven Fires". One of the funniest things I have ever read. Certainly wouldn't pass PC muster these days.
@JustaJeepGuy & TrickyRicky- Heck yes, I bought that issue. I subscribed for years. And they were gloriously un-PC. They used to print preposterous fake letters to the editor, and one I've always remembered was allegedly from Eleanor Roosevelt: "Sirs - It is better to light a candle than curse the darkies." I also recalled they had a feature called Foto Funnies or something which sometimes featured a spectacularly endowed young lady who didn't always wear clothing.
Remember the deranged Italian who attacked Michelangelo's Pieta sculpture in St Peter's Basilica with a hammer? The next issue of Harvard Lampoon (which spawned the National Lampoon) carried a photo of the lunatic striking the sculpture with the caption "Pieta? I thought you said Pinata!"
@Wahoo- See, that's a funny line!
