99. When Jesus Came to Our House

August 25, 2006

Q: I remember a mid-eighties National Lampoon with a comic feature called “When Jesus Came to Our House.” One frame had Christ opening a bucket of KFC and saying, “Take and eat, this is my chicken.” Too much. Any idea what issue that might have been?

A: It appeared in the National Lampoon Very Large Book of Comical Funnies (1975). (Thanks to Carol for this answer.)


The piece was titled 'If Jesus Came to Your House' and it was in NL's 'Very Large Book of Comical Funnies', 1975. (I remember tearing that page out of my original copy 'cus I thought it was blasphemous!)

Of course! I should have known. Thanks, Carol, for clearing up that mystery.

Thanks for your help on this one. I'm sure I read it in a regular issue of Nationsl Lampoon, but it was probably reprinted. Now I'll see if I can track it down.
