It is worth considering the source. /The Realist/ was not a particularly factual magazine. The creator and author was Paul Krassner (http://www.paulkrassner.com/). There is a bio (http://www.paulkrassner.com/pkbio.htm) that gives some juicy quotes.
Or, from http://www.sevenstories.com/book/index.cfm/GCOI/58322100706950
] In 1958, having decided that what the world needed was a satirical
] magazine for adults, Krassner began publishing The Realist, and has
] continued to do so, on and off, ever since. People magazine calls
] him the "father of the underground press." Library Journal calls The
] Realist "the best satirical magazine in America."
