flaw is difficult to see in the photographs,
I will make special note of it, in the description.
During the magazine's most successful
years, parody of every kind was a
mainstay; surrealist content was
also central to its appeal. Almost all the
issues included long text pieces,
shorter written pieces, a section of
actual news items (dubbed "True Facts"),
cartoons and comic strips. Most
issues also included "Foto Funnies"
or fumetti. The result was an unusual mix of
intelligent, cutting-edge wit, combined with
some crass, bawdy jesting. In both cases,
National Lampoon humor often pushed far
beyond the boundaries of what
was generally considered appropriate and
acceptable. As co-founder Henry Beard
described the experience years later:
"There was this big door that said,
'Thou shalt not.' We touched it,
and it fell off its hinges."
