Q: I’m looking for information concerning a National Lampoon article titled (as near as I can remember) “In Pursuit of the Savage Bajoona”. It concerns things in single women’s apartments that men should be wary of, one of which is the bajoona, a toilet seat that will not stay up. I’d like to find what issue the article appeared in. This would have been in an early issue, possibly late ’70s, early 80s.
A: According to several commenters, the article appeared in Playboy magazine, not in National Lampoon. James Kilpatrick or Nicholas von Hoffman, both of whom used to be on the “Point/Counterpoint” segment on “60 Minutes” back in the ’70s, are cited as the author, but a little Googling around confirms that it was Kilpatrick with “The Bijoona in 615” in the December 1972–January 1973 issues of Playboy.
