The sequel to National Lampoon’s 1964 High School Yearbook and considered the Rosetta stone of news parody, National Lampoon’s Sunday Newspaper is a cult classic of puerile genius.
--------------------------------
Dateline:
Dacron, Ohio, Sunday, February 12, 1978 (Motor Home Capital of the World)
Now in a vibrant tabloid format, the Dacron, Ohio
Republican-Democrat, one of America’s newspapers, returns with a complete Sunday edition of all the news that’s unfit to print. With stories and photos that are as remarkably plausible today as they were in 1978, the Republican-Democrat is littered with grade-A-quality humor.
Including National News, Local News, and More Local News, a Sports Section, Entertainment, Television Listings, Travel, Real Estate, Gardening, Your Pet, Women’s Pages, Classified Ads, a Swillmart Discount Store Advertising Supplement, a Parade Magazine Parody, a Sunday Week Local Magazine, and Eight Pages of Comics, it will take you back in time even if you were never there to begin with.
Any fan of
The Onion will discover its recipe for success–take National Lampoon’s Sunday Newspaper, rejigger the news to reflect today’s absurdity, and maintain the National Lampoon’s pitch-perfect mimicry of editorial and design. Ask any comedy writer at work today, and she or he will tell you that National Lampoon’s 1964 High School Yearbook and National Lampoon’s Sunday Newspaper are the sine qua non of written humor.
