I’m not sure if these two pictures have been posted together on the internet before, but if not then it’s long overdue.
The Back to College issue of National Lampoon is famous for its spanking cover, but the Today’s Teens issue from August 1978 inspired a spanking picture of its own. From the prolific pen of Paula Meadows, it first appeared in Janus just a year or two later.
Of course those peace-loving hippy parents would never have resorted to corporal punishment so they have been reimagined as a straight couple, but the connection between the two pictures is clear for all to see, right down to the girl’s lowered left sock.
Mara McAfee did another Lampoon cover which is begging for a follow up too.
