There’s a Zucker Born Every Minute Dept.

February 7th, 2014 | Posted in MAD Magazine


 Clicky to visit the MAD website

If you don’t regularly visit the MAD Magazine website you are missing out on some timely and funny stuff. Since they relaunched it a couple of years ago (originally called “The Idioitcal”, a title I loved but which they seem to have dropped) they have been terrific at posting daily pieces that give the MAD treatment to in-the-moment subjects, something the production time of a print magazine makes impossible. The one above is a perfect example. Just hours after the “Facebook Video” thing started happening the guys at MAD jumped on it with this, posted yesterday. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been the (very ample) butt of a number of posts recently, and they have numerous regular features as well as the occasional classic MAD piece.

The even occasionally have sneak peeks on upcoming MAD pieces. For example, they let the cat out of the bag on Monday when they posted this following the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman:

Hoffman Tribute

Looks like my next piece in MAD is going to be a spoof of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”! I guess I’d better hurry and finish that up!

Anyway, it’s worth making MAD‘s website a daily stop on your interwebby adventures.

    Kind of miss the “guess the cover” contest they used to have over on MAD’s website. Wish they’d bring that back. We’re about due to see February’s cover any day now I’d think.

      Entertainment Weekly just posted an exclusive first look at the cover of MAD #526 (about six hours ago) on their site. Cool cover.
