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:
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.
