Would You Buy A Used War From This Man? A Collection of Political Humor From National Lampoon, was a 1972 American humor book, a paperback anthology of pieces of political humor from National Lampoon magazine.
The "This Man" in the title was Richard Nixon, who was the President of the United States from 1969-1974, and the "War" in the title was the Vietnam War, which lasted from 1955 to 1975. The title was a variant of the American saying, "Would you buy a used car from this man?" meaning that the person was not someone you could trust, and that was obvious from the person's face. A Democratic Party poster campaign in the 1960 Presidential election used the slogan "Would YOU buy a used car from this man?" together with a photo of Nixon, who later lost the election to Kennedy.
The cartoonist Ed Sorel drew the cover illustration, which shows Nixon as a used car salesman leaning on a pile of blood-stained army uniforms, with a sign in the background with lettering that says "TRICKY DICKY" and "USED CARNAGE". The book was published by Warner-Paperback Library.
