181. Jackie Onassis 12 Days of Christmas

Q: I think this appeared about 1973-74. Looking for the “12 Days of Christmas” where Aristotle Onassis bought Jackie Onassis… the world. No one remembers this. Some lyrics I remember: “On the 1st day of Christmas Onassis bought for me the Statue of Liberty. On the 2nd day of Christmas Onassis bought for me…”

According to Mary: “That wasn’t a NatLamp piece at all. It appeared in the 1970 MAD paperback Sing Along With MAD. (in later editions it’s replaced with a parody of ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’). It was perpetrated by Frank Jacobs, with drawings by Al Jaffee.” Thanks, Mary! I didn’t think it sounded like something that NatLamp would run.

    That wasn’t a NatLamp piece at all. It appeared in the 1970 MAD paperback “Sing Along With MAD”. (in later editions it’s replaced with a parody of ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’). It was perpetrated by Frank Jacobs, with drawings by Al Jaffee.
