Found: Vintage MAD-Inspired Postcard

MERCH AND DESTROY DEPT.

This shouldn’t come as any kind of surprise, but it’s a fact that anyone who works at MAD doesn’t have much of a life. Which means that even on a day off, we still manage to think about MAD! But sometimes that’s a good thing. Like when we come across a cool, weird piece of MAD memorabilia (MADorabilia, if you will) — like this old 3-D postcard made in 1958 by Eden Plastics Corp of NY. Just look at that weird knock-off Alfred! If you have images of vintage MAD/Alfred E. Neuman stuff (even if it’s bootlegs), share it with us in the comments section!

With over 100 million pageviews and counting, Kony 2012 — a half-hour long call for action against Ugandan war criminal Joseph Kony — has become the biggest thing to hit the Web since Rebecca Black reminded us that Saturday follows Friday. As part of its campaign, Invisible Children, the group behind the video, is pressuring 20 superstar “culturemakers” to speak out against Kony. Most of the 20 have stayed unusually silent on the red-hot issue — until now.
