As most things I received during my early years, it was as hands-me-downs from Brother. I could wax ecstatic but I haven’t the time. We’re down a worker, which means I’m doing my job, half of his job and then the person covering the other half of his job can’t do it, so I have to constantly get up, walk over and show her how to do things all day long, which means I’m doing at least 3/4 of his job. I wanted to post about this because I wish that everybody could’ve enjoyed MAD as a kid! Granted, since my frame of reference was so different from other kids (no film, TV or children’s books — books but not for kids), a lot of the topics were completely baffling BUT the political and historical stuff was right in there along with sideshows like Spy Vs. Spy.
Feldstein’s dead. He started MAD in 1956. Long live MAD.
