National Lampoon’s Deteriorata

This is National Lampoon’s 1972 parody of “The Desiderata of Happiness,” an early 20th century poem about how to live happily in the world which became a pop cultural icon in the form of a poster which hung ubiquitously throughout homes, churches and businesses during the 60s and 70s. If you ever saw the poster as a child you will love this hilarious twist on the message.

  1. Yes we all Human beings are a bunch of Flukes on Earth: Forget about Universe; how could be possible a fifty years old person don’t know the own body? Too many problems on Earth with so much technology: but everybody have the own thoughts; but much more about wealth then health, for that matter corruptions, wars, and a stupid terrorism paid and instigations to kill. Also cynical way of life among many Country Leaders: playing with smiles; about the own thoughts of thinking, who could be the most strong country for the third world war. Nobody knows or pretend of not knowing in which situation the Terrestrials ‘are in. I don´t care how is the planet Terra: never been in such dangers like are now! Even if not going to be a nuclear war: the Earth continues going for the own Nature destruction; to do with environment, again, because the greed for wealth. Maybe we have somebody much smarter than me: with the knowledge about of such issues’; my problem about of what I real know, make me keep quiet of not mention the truth. I mention already a few times with some of my comments: about over 20.000 Nukes, inclusive Israel a tiny country with 300 of them, what for they want so many? At any moment Humans could show how crazy they could be, and hated to start another war, and if that could happened the Antarctica could melt and rise all Oceans to invade land, than Earth speed up on rotation and life will parish or vanish for another few millions of years. Why we not have peace on Earth? I’m not young any more: but with a very good health and knowledge to help giving continuation of Mankind. I’m not just a writer: and just wondering when the catastrophe will be here; because even so with such advance on technology we still have so much to discovery, and left of what no good for all of us, like petroleum, which have been the main problem. I keep every comment of mine that have send to many sites, enough to publish a book, and most to do with my warnings to do with environment! 03/03/13 by A.Oscar
