Who is the original author of "Unsolved Mysteries of Anatomy"?

I have a newspaper clipping from the early 80's and I'm pretty convinced this is the original publication. I don't have the full article, or the name of the newspaper. There is no title on the poem, only a sentence that reads "Let's call it, unsolved mysteries of anatomy".

VERBATIM:
""Where can a man buy a cap for his knee,
Or the key to a lock of his hair?
Is the crown of your head where jewels are found?
Who travels the bridge of your nose?
If you wanted to shingle the roof of your mouth,
Would you use the nails in your toes?
Can you sit in the shade of the palm of your hand
Or beat on the drum of your ear?
Can the calf in your leg eat the corn off your toe?
Then why not grow corn on the ear?
Can the crook in your elbow be sent to jail?
If so, just what did he do?
How can you sharpen your shoulder blades?
I'll be darned if I know -- do you? -- Andrew M., Hightstown, N.J.""
