    Eli: I found Parts Pups in Al Gottlieb’s paper version of Gag Recap and submitted some. I forgot the editor’s name, do you remember it?

Although once he took, he began using more. It was also cool to see this slick joke newsletter on the counter tops at different auto-parts supply stores like Napa Auto parts etc. Aside from the nefarious men’s and girly magazines at the time, the publisher kept it rather “clean”….notice all the bodacious girls had bikinis instead of nothing at all.
