    This piece of history was published in National Lampoon magazine in 1976, back when people had a sense of humour.

    Hmm. I guess I can expect a fair number of negs, but I'm not sure this was funny in 1976, or even 1876. But that's just me . . .

    The only good thing was his description of Arabs. It turns out to be true 39 years later

    This was what was once known as "satire" or "irony." It's actually a sophisticated form of humor favored by educated "know-it-alls." "Wit" has since been determined to be dangerous and has since been outlawed by "progressives" and faint-hearted millennials.

    You a girl? That might explain it. Cunts think those morning fucking talk shows are funny. Real humor escapes them.

    You might be a cunt. A bleeding cunt.

    PJ was great, I read a lot of his books. Holidays in Hell and Modern Manners (for Rude People) stand out in my memory.

    Italians are the best looking and only ones successful in pwning the rest of Europe!

    Way off, IMO.
