The Cornell Lunatic, the college humor magazine at Cornell University, was founded on 1 April 1978 by Joey Green '80. During Green’s tenure as editor, the Lunatic was a 72 page glossy magazine of satire and parody published once a semester. The Lunatic staff was responsible for many pranks on campus, including a parody of the 1979 Cornell–Yale Homecoming Football Game program. Today, the Lunatic continues to publish once a semester, and the magazine is distributed on campus for free.

Famous alumni from the magazine include photographer Jeremy Wolff ’80, Washington Post columnist Stefanie Weiss ’80, science fiction novelist Adam-Troy Castro ’82, cookbook author Joyce Hendley '82, CSI television producer Naren Shankar '84, novelist Jeff Schwaner '87, children's poet Robert Pottle, Jr. '92, Harvard economics professor Sendhil Mullainathan ’93, columnist Jeff Bercovici '99, author Noah Goldstein '00, MTV producer Alan Noah '01, and Medium television writer Ken Scheffler ’03.

On 29 March 2008, more than fifty Lunatic alumni and guests gathered at the Cornell Club in Manhattan to celebrate The Lunatic's 30th anniversary and the publication of the book Lunacy: The Best of the Cornell Lunatic.
