387. Horror-Comedy Short Story

April 30, 2024

Q. I’m the publisher of Weird Tales (, and am on the hunt for a strange horror-comedy short story that I read in National Lampoon as a kid in the 80’s. This story starts off with a line like this: “When the blade went through my neck and my head fell into the basket, I knew I had only moments to act.” Then the guy jams his tongue through his stump and bounces around, creating havoc. Any ideas?

A. This story sounds really familiar to me, but I’m having trouble finding it. If anyone remembers which issue this appeared in, please leave the answer in a comment.
