Mad Magazine is 60!

Yes, the mag and I were born the same year.

I can’t imagine life without it.  I wasted countless hours reading Mad Magazine as a kid.  I’ll admit, I’ve not seen one in years, but I’ll also have to admit, I miss Spy v. Spy, Alfred E Neuman, and all the rest.

The brainchild of Harvey Kurtzman it featured satires and parodies of other magazines, even though it was started as a comic book.  The little enterprise grew to 2,000,000 subscriptions in the 1970s.

Well, people were smoking a lot of weed!

Inane, silly, stoopid, and fun, it has kept people laughing for 60 years!

And it gave us a great tag line:  “What, me worry?”

And why should we?   We have humor after all.

I suppose I should pick one UP!
