Q: There was a feature (in an issue that parodied niche magazines) about a magazine for people named Fred. (The nomenclature on a T-shirt ad in this piece was “Better Fred Than Dead”). Can you please tell me what issue this was in?
A: Carol does it again: “A book titled ‘The Eighties; A Look Back’ was published in 1979 by a whole lot of artists and writers, mostly associated with the ‘Poon. In the middle of this tome are several short magazine parodies, and one of them is ‘Fred’. The author’s name is Jeremy Wolff.” I knew I’d seen it somewhere, but not in National Lampoon.
