Does anyone remember "Non-Jokes" from National Lampoon magazine?

Ok, as a teenager, I discovered National Lampoon magazine in perhaps 1987 or 1988, and hardly missed an issue for several years. It was amazing that I could buy it at any store, even though it had a lot of nudity and adult themes (this was pre-internet porn days, so porn was hard to come by - pardon the pun - in Newfoundland, at that time).
Anyhoooo, I remember reading one issue in particular where there was a small article with a series of "non-jokes", one of which went something like "our family was so poor, we could only afford a blue car". Oddly that is the only one I remember, and certainly not the funniest of the lot... my cousins and I laughed ourselves nearly sick with that issue, and I'd love to track it down again.
So today I bought the complete National Lampoon magazine archive on DVD, but it is not searchable, so while I will continue to browse each issue, I was wondering if there are any National Lampoon fans here who might help me narrow the search. I'm guessing it's an issue from anywhere between 1988 and 1994...
Any help would be appreciated! I need to find this article to scratch a very annoying brain itch :)
