The Dacron Republican-Democrat, National Lampoon Sunday Newspaper Parodybetter known as the National Lampoon Sunday Newspaper Parody, has been reissued in book form. One of the funniest publications to come out of NatLampCo, this follow-up to the equally funny and phenomenally successful National Lampoon 1964 High School Yearbook Parody was first published in 1978. It was printed on real newsprint and assembled like a real newspaper (although smaller in size than the real thing) with a cover date of February 12, 1978. Fictional Dacron, Ohio was also the home of C. Estes Kefauver High School (of the yearbook parody) and there are many references to people and places from the earlier work.

Includes things like a full-color comics section, the Swillmart advertising supplement, Pomade and Sunday Week "magazine" supplements, and endless side-splitting ad parodies.

The hardcover reprint is printed about the same size, but on glossy white paper instead of newsprint. It's still rolling-on-the-floor funny, but who ever heard of a glossy newspaper? Weird.
