A Classic

In 1978, the National Lampoon produced a complete Sunday newspaper.  This was an extreme extension of an earlier Harvard Lampoon prank where they replaced the front page of the Sunday New York Times with their own version.  Thousands of unsuspecting subscribers woke to a bit of a shock that day. 

The newspaper, the Dacron Ohio Republican-Democrat had news, entertainment, sports, television listings, and, of course, a colour comics supplement.  The comics were parodies of other comics.  Below is the "Blondie" parody.  Please click to see it full size ~ it is worth it.

And if you want to get your own copy, don't buy a new one from Amazon ($186) unless you follow the link and I get a rupee. :)

  1. If my memory serves me right, the "Women's" section of the Dacron Ohio Republican-Democrat had a story about a fashion show in which men modeled dresses.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
