232. Early American Fuck Art

Q: I’m trying to find a feature that I think appeared in “The Gentleman’s Bathroom Companion II” but which I’m assuming had appeared in an earlier National Lampoon issue. It was a parody of folk/primitive/colonial American art, with the example that stands out in my memory being a photo of a needlework sampler (the kind that usually say “Home Sweet Home,” etc) reading “Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue, I’ll Fuck Anyone In This Goddamn Bore-Ass Town” or something along those lines. Do you know what the title of the piece was/which issue it initially appeared in?

A: It was called “Early American Fuck Art” and first appeared in the August 1976 (Compulsory Summer Sex) issue. By the looks of it, I think it may have been done for the 199th Birthday Book, but maybe there wasn’t room for it or something.
