MAD About the Olympics

MAD About the Olympics

By The Editors Monday, July 30th, 2012

Well, it’s that time again! Exaggerated athletic pride, feigned international cooperation and millions of people asking what the hell “dressage” is. For a couple weeks every four years we get the chance to scoff at a physically perfect Norwegian gymnast performing a slightly off-center landing, even while we’re barely able to trudge our flabby butt over to the nearest Taco Bell. With that Olympic spirit in mind, we'll be posting some of our worst Summer Games classics over the next two weeks, starting today with this vintage (read: outdated) Olympic cover! Can we at least get a Bronze Medal for trying?
