Lampoon Goes ‘National’

The Harvard Crimson :: News :: Lampoon Goes ‘National’: "Magazine readers nationwide may have been surprised yesterday when they picked up what looked like a thin April issue of National Geographic—and found Paris Hilton cavorting with a stuffed elephant and gorilla on the cover.

No, it’s not an actual copy of the iconic nature publication, but an April Fools’ parody issue distributed across the country in a collaborative effort between National Geographic magazine and The Harvard Lampoon, a semi-secret Sorrento Square social organization that used to occasionally publish a so-called humor magazine.

The Lampoon provided and controlled the content for the issue, with articles poking fun at the wildlife magazine’s stories on nature and international events."
