321. “My Life of Practical Joking”

August 3, 2011

Q: When I was a teenager, late seventies, I read a short story in National Lampoon with a title something like “my life as a practical joker” I would love to find it again to read. Do you know where I can find this?

A: That would be “My Life of Practical Joking” by Tod Carroll from the October 1979 (Comedy) issue.


I have "My Life of Practical Joking", by John Stemp That I saved 30 years ago from The National Lampoon. Email me or let me know on Facebook Messenger and I'd be happy to send it out to you. I had my sec. Type It out on Word. She thought I was nuts. MA
