Mad Magazine!


Courtesy of our reader Michi.

Mad Magazine is an old time favorite of mine.... I read it since I was a kid, from the day I discover a huge collection of it stashed away in a closet (concrete slab homes do not have attics....)
Spy versus Spy, by Prohias was always a treat.
And well, Alfred H. Newman, the main character of the magazine promised a lot of fun in the amazingly well drawn cartoons in every issue. Mad was great as an educational tool, too -cringe members of the academia- you actually can learn some English with the magazine when you're eight!

At that age "What me worry?" is a deep philosophical question, as Alfred H. Newman would said.
