Idiot for Sale (CHEAP!)

May 13th, 2011 | Posted in MAD Magazine

It’s official, you can buy anything on Craigslist.

One of the resin statues of MAD‘s Alfred E. Neuman that were made in conjunction with the film Up the Academy is for sale on Craigslist for a paltry $17,000…which is just a little more that half of what Bill Gaines paid to get MAD’s name removed from the film when it was released on video. There are at least three of these statues in existance, the one being sold by this gentleman, one owned by Jim Halperin, and the one pictured above which is in the offices of MAD in NYC. Pictured above with Alfred is my son Tom and Brady Parham, daughter of caricaturist/Illustrator Keelan Parham.

    Halperin says he’d let his go for $9250 + shipping!
