Your Unauthorized Guide to the Golden Age of National Lampoon Magazine

6. Elephant cartoon

December 23, 1997

Q: I am looking for a particular comic that appeared in the Lampoon (I think) during the “golden” years. My husband loves the comic so much that he still laughs over it every time he just thinks about it. As he tells it,it is a picture of an elephant (maybe on a toilet) crying with a caption below that says something like “You would cry too if you had to wipe with your nose.”

A: That cartoon, titled “Mildred,” appeared on the “Lad’s Laughs” page in the “Boy’s Real Life” parody which appeared in the October ’74 (Pubescence) issue and was drawn by the ubiquitous Warren Sattler.
