184. World Championships

Q: It was a cartoon, at the end of the magazine maybe? Just like a tournament bracket (arranged with all the teams in their first round, quarter-final, semi-final, and finals) except it’s the countries of the world, with the semi-finals being USSR vs Afghanistan, and US vs Vietnam, with the “final” (yet to be played) Afghanistan vs Vietnam.

A: That was actually from Spy magazine. See the Comments link for more details. (Thanks to Chris for answering this one.)

    Almost positive that was in Spy Magazine, also that it made it in its ‘Best of’ book published a few years ago.

    I can confirm that. It’s on page 175 of “Spy: The Funny Years”. Interestingly, it was by Ron Hauge, who was also a NatLamp contributor.

    You are such a STAR!!!!! I saw that years ago, and have told folk about it, but could never find it. Hope has raised its feathery head. Thank you sooooooo much!
