I have two pieces in this issue, one being the printed version of the single page gag “One Evening at the White House” first posted on MAD‘s website. The other is a spoof of the movie poster for “A Million Ways to Die in the West” Starring Cliven Bundy, Sean Hannity, and a cow (who is arguably the most intelligent mammal in the image). I’ll post a peek at that when MAD gives me the ok.

In the meantime… what are you waiting for?!? Go out and buy a copy, clod!
