This is a collection of National Lampoon cartoonist Charles Rodrigues’s taboo-busting gag comics.
Charles Rodrigues was one of the fiercest, most audacious, taboo-busting cartoonists who ever lived, and our second collection of his cartoons from the National Lampoon may be the most jaw-droppingly potent collection of single gag cartoons ever published. There was no subject Rodrigues wouldn’t tackle, and none that he couldn’t make funny. There is no example of human suffering, misery, tragedy, or absurdity that is off limits. If they weren’t as funny as they in fact are, they would be considered tasteless, repugnant, and horrifying—but without a drop of rancor, even the chapter titled “Good Ways to kill a Rock Performer.” There is virtually no way to adequately describe Rodrigues’ viciously wicked imagination.
“Darker than Charles Addams and more politically incorrect than Lenny Bruce, Rodrigues was a one-of-a-kind talent who could craft jokes that would make you laugh out loud, then feel bad about it all day…while still making you laugh when you think of them. ... Gag On This is the perfect gift for your most twisted family member or friend, or for that extremely devout person in your life that you’d rather not ever hear from again. It is extremely offensive, filled with slurs and insults of every kind, and it is probably the funniest thing you’ll read all year.” — Rudy Panucci - The Charleston Gazette
