95: "Are You A Homo?"
“National Lampoon”, July 1971

Well? Are you?
Amongst all the various corny puns and hints about swishiness and sexual perversion, this touches the nerve of adolescent paranoia about homosexuality, when even denying it only invites more teasing accusations. That not only is being gay the worst thing in the world, but you might also somehow be one and not really know. And that to know enough about homosexuals to know you're not one, will only elicit taunts of, "Well how do you know so much about homos then, homo?"
