354. NatLampCo Map of the World
January 15, 2012
Q: I remember a world map insert into one of the magazines that had all the countries and a number of cities with very funny names. I remember having it posted on my wall above my desk and would read through the names for a good laugh. But I cannot seem to find it listed as any part of a National Lampoon publication. Any ideas?
A: Yes, that was one of the funniest things ever—the NatLampCo Map of the World. It was bound into the back of The National Lampoon Encyclopedia of Humor (1973).
I actually have that map right here, framed and everything. Had it behind my desk when I worked in a corporate job in the '70s in Chicago, um, "Dinette," and it provided some comic relief from work stress while no one who did not look closely knew the truth. Since then I've lived near Rest Stop" FL and now live in "Upstate" NY
