293. “Such is the fate of wild poodles” Cartoon

May 18, 2011

Q: Looking for the issue of National Lampoon containing a cartoon with the caption “Such is the fate of wild poodles”.

A: It’s from “The Day the Animals Discovered Death” by Ed Bluestone, p.76 of the January 1973 (Death) issue. (Thanks to Steve for the answer!)


"The Day the Animals Discovered Death" by Ed Bluestone, p.76 of the Jan. 1973 "Death" issue. Two poodles are in a jungle, and one poodle is saying "This is like being in New York. We may never reach the jungle boutique alive." The other poodle is indeed saying "Such is the fate of wild poodles!"
