132. Cut-out Christmas Ornaments

Q: I’m looking for images of paper cut out christmas ornaments that were in Lampoon. Perhaps the late 70s. I think there were four. One was of a “dead jewish boy”. Another was of holly balls w/holly dick. I used them on the christmas for years! Sure wish I could find them.

A: Doesn’t ring a bell with me, but Marcel says: December 1979 (Success) issue. (Thanks, Marcel! That was fast.)

    It is an easy one! It was in the December 1979
    (Success) issue.

    And let’s not forget “Attractive Dead Squid” (“helps mask evergreen odor”) and “Topo Gigio,” a star for the top of the tree (“okay, not a very big star, but he was on the Ed Sullivan show”).
    Surprisingly, the great (and Jewish) illustrator Seymour Chwast did the art. I wonder if he caught much sh*t for the “Dead Jewish Guy” thing. It is a good joke, if that’s mitigating. A “Dead Jewish Guy” is “the Reason for the Season,” after all.
