FONEBONE FRIDAY DEPT.
Recently, Donald Trump posted a tweet about Jon Stewart that many felt was anti-Semitic. We don’t want to go after Trump for being religiously insensitive — after all, there are so many larger reasons to hate him! This is really just the tip of the disgusting, attention-whoring iceberg. Still, if he’s going to be active on social media, he should really go for the full experience. And we’re happy to help with our new feature, "A Selfie We'd Like to See."

Sad news today (well, sad for one person — for the rest of us, it’s actually pretty positive) — Khloe Kardashian Odom will not be returning next season to co-host X-Factor. There was no reason given, but it’s either because she wanted to spend more time with her family, or because she’s a talentless, unappealing cipher who was so terrible at her simple job that she made Mario Lopez look like a bottomless well of genius magnetism. Oh well — TV didn’t work out, but there’s always the big screen!
On Tuesday Barbra Streisand, who turns 71 today, received the Chaplin Award from the Film Society of Lincoln Center, which she considered a great honor. And yet, she never considered it a great honor to appear on the cover of MAD, which we can’t blame her for.
To celebrate Richie Havens, the music legend best remembered for opening Woodstock in 1969, we present this Classic MAD poem by Frank Jacobs and Sergio Aragonés.

Time magazine recently revealed their "100 Most Influential People." And that’s exciting — but what we’re really psyched about is next week’s issue — just in time for the end of cold and flu season!
