  1. Philip Willey says:

    Way to go, you idiots!

  2. Mugshotz says:

    The cover is great! Congrats on being included in such a historic issue! Can’t wait to see your work.

  3. J. Stewart says:

    jon stewart already did the caption “notorious a.i.g.” a few monthes ago

    • Tom says:

      Wow. I am sure MAD must have stolen that from Jon Stewart as that isn’t an obvious bit of comedy at all. 🙄

  4. Hugh Neek says:

    Fair’s fair, because The Daily Show *totally* stole MAD’s observation that people’s words are not always reflected by their actions. The plagiarizing bastards!

  5. […] Speaking of big milestones, Evan Dorkin says the 500th issue of Mad Magazine is out on newsstands now, which is kind of amazing — to me at any […]
