Q: I remember reading a story in Lampoon titled “Dynamite” I think. It was a story about a guy going out into the country to stay at a friend’s or maybe an uncle’s house. The story revolved around getting vert stoned and dealing with a Great Dane that shared the house with them that particular summer. The story culminated with a day of throwing dynamite off the porch, and one of sticks only made it about ten feet… Chaos and hilarity ensued.
A: “Dynamite”, by P.J. O’Rourke, appeared in the June 1980 (Fresh Air) issue.
