114. Col. Mustard Cartoon

January 30, 2007

Q: I’m desperately trying to find a copy of a panel cartoon I first saw in a National Lampoon from about 1979 or 1980 (possibly a year or two earlier but I don’t think so). It is of a portly English gentleman in a book-lined room on his hands and knees on a Chesterfield sofa performing an actual of solo sexual gratification involving a piece of silverware, with two aghast onlookers exclaiming “Great Scott, it’s Colonel Mustard in the Library with the Candlestick”. While I realise that these sorts of things can be very hard to track down, I’ve exhausted every other avenue I can think of so any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

A: Dustin found it: June 1989, page 15. Thanks, Dustin!
