See the merino standing there...

I finished rereading the college humor book (from which I have posted a couple of puns here) and discovered within it one of my favorite punnish pieces of all time. Namely, a series of pictures of sheep with the caption "See the merino standing there / with his long shaggy hair." The puns are mostly on the word "hair" which becomes "heir," "hayer," etc.

The piece is apparently from The Harvard Lampoon, but what is bothering me is that I have distinct memories of having seen it in Mad Magazine in my youth. I suppose it's possible that Mad bought it subsequent to its original publication, but that would seem rather unusual for them. Is there an index to Mad somewhere which would tell me?
