Haiku Monday - Cover






M_APs, GPS…d’oh!

A look up will save life or

Down river you go.



























As a kid, I never read The New Yorker, but I read an awful lot of MAD.  What better way to marry the two together and show my disdain for all things cellular?

The original New Yorker Cover circa. March 29, 1976


Comparison between the original and the Mad cover.

BWAHAHAHAH. I had a subscription to MAD for years. It's how I learned about all of the movies I was too young to see. Good idea. I had no idea they had done this. Ha!

I really don't know the circumstances behind the MAD cover. It was probably a special issue rather than a regular one because it doesn't have Alfred E. on it (that I can see) or the MAD logo. But it is consistent with my maturity level. Bwahahaha

I never had a subscription, but I walked to the town magazine shop for one every month. Along with Sgt. Rock comic books.

I just can't do normal, so I'm glad you liked.

And you never did any spy vs spy inspired paintings? I'm shocked. I often wondered which came first -spy vs spy or the coyote and roadrunner. Hmmmmmm I'm too lazy to look it up.
