  • Army Man (tagline: "America's Only Magazine") was a short-lived comedy magazine published in the late 1980s by George Meyer, an acclaimed writer for The Simpsons. The magazine consisted mostly of very short and very surreal jokes, along with some cartoons. Each issue also featured Jack Handey's "Deep Thoughts", as well as other pieces written by him. Although Army Man was never widely distributed, it gathered a lot of attention in the comedy world. Two of its writers (John Swartzwelder and Jon Vitti) were picked up alongside Meyer to be part of the original writing staff of The Simpsons by the show's developer and show-runner Sam Simon, an enormous fan of the magazine. Eventually other Army Man writers would go on to write for The Simpsons in later seasons, namely Jeff Martin, David Sacks, Ian Maxtone-Graham, Tom Gammill, Max Pross, Kevin Curran and Billy Kimball. Other notable contributors of the magazine included Mark O'Donnell, Andy Borowitz, Andy Breckman, Roz Chast, Spike Feresten (credited as Mike Feresten), Ian Frazier, Ann Hodgman, Mitchell Kriegman, Merrill Markoe, Patricia Marx, Bob Odenkirk and David Owen. The writers were usually people Meyer knew from his years at the Harvard Lampoon or who worked with him in TV shows like Late Night with David Letterman, The New Show, Not Necessarily The News and Saturday Night Live. Only three issues were ever published. The first issue was reprinted and included in the September 2004 issue of The Believer, which also featured interviews with Meyer, O'Donnell, Handey, Breckman and Frazier. (en)
