  • MAD Magazine Closing Its Doors

    After 67 years, MAD Magazine announced it will stop publishing in October of this year. The end of a long era of anti-establishment comedy and off-beat humor, and the screwy face on the cover:

    "What? Me worry?"
    Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Who is watching the watchers?

        Presumably there will be an online version ?

        We may well be last generation to see printed magazines, or even actual newspapers.

        It's a dwindling market....

          Currently, there seem to be no plans for continuing on line.

            In a politically correct world humor is in short supply. If you take one look at Mark Zuckerberg you can see why. We are plunging headfirst into a dystopian future and most people seem to not notice.

              I learned my first poem from MAD Magazine:

              "I think that I shall never hear
              a poem more lovely than a beer.
              The brew that Joe's bar has on tap
              with golden base and snowy cap.
              Poems are made by fools I fear,
              but only Schlitz can make a beer."

              My 7th grade English teacher did not appreciate the poem I memorized for class presentation.
              Leadership is the ability to rise above conventional wisdom.

                  What a coincidence! Several weeks ago I was thinking of MAD magazine because one of the Democrat presidential candidates looks exactly like Alfred E. Neuman.

                      Indeed.

                        Alright, we must send off MAD magazine properly.
                        Post your favorite MAD cover.

                        This one was to honor Patton in 1971
                        on the 69th anniversary of D-Day.

                        Today marks the 69th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy. It was a major turning point in World War II and we are all indebted to the brave actions and sacrifices of those soldiers. Wed love to pay them a wonderful and fitting tribute...but as a poor substitute, were offering the cover and opening pages of our classic spoof of Patton from 1971.

                            I thought it was funny when people in the UK started saying Prince Charles looked a bit like Alfred. The magazine reportedly got a letter saying

                            I do Not look like him!
                            Charles P"
