The 4th issue of our second year.
This was my last issue...as a student of NYU. I didn't let a little thing like graduation keep me from being involved. Apparently it saved the staff the grief of bringing in new members. Which, as we would discover, would cause a lot of grief to the old members.
I don't know how we got two issues out in the Spring of 1979. We tried to do 3 a year, Fall, Winter and Spring. I don't remember why we did issues two months in a row, for a total of four for the semester. Maybe we had a lot of submissions to use. Maybe our budget had been increased and we had enough to do another issue. It was my farewell issue and the guys gave me (and Amy Burns) a shout-out in the masthead. We were the first two members to leave, not just disappear or submit one & done, but to graduate and move on, kinda.
Anyway, the whole issue is here.
The Mutant Issue. We decided to go "theme," much like National Lampoon, excluding the readership. And the theme.
The whole issue is here.
To be honest, it was like we were doing clip-art before clip-art was a thing. We even put an old Zoetrope photos in one corner to try and get a flip-book moving picture effect.
#28) Give her a disease, Cochise.
---I guess they'll start using mustard gas next.
--and tasers are nothing more than static electricity.
---so in the future cops are going to have to ask: "would you like fresh pepper spray with your demonstration?"
---Really, what other food product gets shoved in your face? (Soupy Sales excluded)
I think the TODAY show is losing it; they announced the segment about a missing girl as “Where in the World is Baby Maria?”
As it turns out, it’s less important to be right than to prove the other guy wrong.
#27) Send her a dead cat, Matt.
ABC News reported that Pakistanis are complaining about CIA drone attacks against terrorists inside Pakistan...because it’s killing repeat business.
According to a new study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, men who have had sex with animals were twice as likely to develop penile cancer. Also, fleas and ticks.
