5 out of 20 of the “Dumbest Things of the Year” are Trump-related… Not surprising but that must be a record.

I actually have two pieces in this issue, one being a six page parody of the movie “Sully” written by Dick DeBartolo. Six pages was probably as long as the actual script for that movie was. The other is a MAD 20 piece: a spoof of the movie poster for “Pets” starring Anthony Weiner. I’ll post a peek at that stuff when MAD gives me the ok.

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

    Mike Morse’s #15 is about libertarian Gary Johnson’s question trouble, not Seaworld.

    Only seven writing bylines out of 20?

      Whoops. That’s what happens when you are cutting and pasting in hotel rooms in the wee hours. Thanks.

      Many of these are written by the editorial staff as a whole, which is why they are not credited to a specific writer. I am not sure at what point the criteria for credit changes for a piece like the Wells Fargo Bank letter.
