A Senior MAD?


Can it be true? Is Alfred E. Neuman a senior citizen? 

Yep. MAD Magazine is 60 years old. It seems impossible to fathom, but the magazine that has always been associated with childish humor and satire is, indeed, sixty. It’s the magazine that reduces cultural taste to microscopic proportions and yet can also make the likes of Condi Rice laugh. 

Why not?

Fess up, Americans, if you’ve ever read MAD then you have laughed at something in its pages. I always liked the “Scenes We’d Like To See” cartoon, which I swear was the inspiration for the scene where Indiana Jones faces a huge villain with a massive sword and calmly takes out a pistol and shoots him. What, me worry?

Here’s to you, MAD.
