Christopher Cerf and Tony Hendra do.
Written in 1979 by some of the more important supporting cast of the oringional National Lampoon, this book was both a hilarious work of satire and a totally inaccurate guide to the future. Not since Vietnamization has the future been so completely mispredicted.
It is probably one of the last entries into that giddy generation of printed satire that began with the Lampoon in the 1970s. Evil, cruel and ridiculous humor met on the printed page with a ferocity and accuracy that Lewis Grizzard never quite could get down pat. Erma Bombeck, though...that's and entirely identical story.
If you find it, get it. If you can't, sit shivering alone in the dark, watcing Falco, eating Jelly Shoes, listening to your cassettes of Tip and the O'Neils, and wondering where it all went so terribly right.
