I mean, the idea wasn't that original.  It was the execution that made it work really well.  The MAD Magazine one is so poorly photoshopped that it doesn't have the same punch.

To be fair, they are both owned by Time-Warner.

That may have something to do with it.

MAD stole it from several online p'shoppers, so there you go.

Ex-Texan: Every time  I hear the word "plagiarize", it reminds od a weatherman we had in San Antonio, named Alex Lopez, my Grandmother loved him. Anyway, in his newspaper column, it was proved he plagiarized it. Shortly after this kerfuffle, the TV station fired him, but he is still on television in some parts of South Texas, after being disgraced in San Antonio.


How do you plagiarize the weather?

Meh.  This was my favorite news mag cover.  I cut it out and put it on my bedroom wall when I was 14.

When I was a kid mad was the shiat. That was before the internet. I'd like go back to those days sometimes.

Al Jaffee is 96 and still does the fold-ins. Most of the usual gang of idiots has since departed. Saw an item in the news about him a few months ago. I haven't read an issue in years, gave my old copies away to an ex who has kids, but the kid in me is thrilled that MAD is still around.

A distinctive architectural feature from the Russian seat of government added to the US seat of government to imply a link between the two regimes?

That's an incredibly original idea that no one could possibly have thought of unless they stole it from MAD.

No, no.  Party Commanders get Handmaids. The likes of us toil in the toxic wastelands, if we're lucky, maybe we get an EconoWife.

When I got a little older I also liked National Lampoon. But Mad never gets old.

To all those asking/shocked - MAD never went away, you did. Pat yourselves on the back, blow some more smoke up your own asses and wonder at how you've become the very maroons you used to mock. Pfft!

When I was a wee lad, Mad Kind Ludwig was . . . mad.  I sometimes wish we could go back to the days before the French Revolution.

How do you plagiarize the weather?

Are you kidding?  The weather is all plagiarized except FLA and the west coast.  They just watch the weather one or two time zones over and report what weather is on the way.


That's like speeding at the Indy 500

There was a great electronic archive (CD/dvd?) put out several years ago with all of the issues up to that date.
