CRIME FLIES DEPT.
It’s been a big week for two of America’s favorite bad boys, Edward Snowden and OJ Simpson. Snowden was granted asylum in Russia, while OJ was granted parole (eventually). With both fellas getting good news, we started wondering if they had anything else in common…

Fast-food employees across the county are walking off the job this week to protest their lousy pay, though it doesn’t seem likely their demands for more money will be met. Which makes sense: Fast-food chains have many more important priorities than paying employees a living wage.
When asked by a reporter recently what he’d do if he found out a priest was gay, Pope Francisanswered, “Who am I to judge?” The Pontiff’s refreshing non-condemning tone was welcomed by many and may have set the stage for the Holy Father to do further outreach to the gay community.
The MAD offices were host to a number of MAD luminaries (we use the term loosely) on Thursday, including Paul Coker, Drew Friedman, Tom Richmond, Teresa Burns Parkhurst, Desmond Devlin, Tom Bunk and Irving Schild!

Martin eating breakfast right next to them! After rehearsing their Dothraki, they screwed up the courage to approach him for this Celebrity Snap! He was a great sport, even turning his famous hat sideways "Aflred E. Neuman-style." Thanks, George! Now stop goofing around and wrap up that heptalogy!
CARLOS DANGEROUS LIAISONS DEPT.

However, now that more dirty messages and nude shots of Anthony Weiner have turned up (dated a full year AFTER his initial sexting scandal broke) this show has been renewed...even if his New York mayoral hopes are being cancelled.
