Today is one of America’s most beloved pseudo-holidays, right up there with Root Vegetable Awareness Week: “Take Your Child to Work Day.” In bringing your son or daughter to work today, you’re teaching them the importance of commitment, dedication, and putzing around on eBay. And as long as you’ve got the little monster in the office with you, you might as well make the best of it — and we’re here to help.

By now you’ve seen this picture of “dive bar girl” Madalyn Starkey posing with the President. You know the face. You know the point. But you don’t know what she said! Or do you?!? (You’re so secretive, you little minx, you!) We wrote a few ourselves — click through and share your own in the comments section!
Whenever two celebrities wear the same outfit, there’s always a stupid article about who looked better in it. So we decided we want in on that action! After all, stupid articles are pretty much our bread and butter! Join the democratic process — cast your votes in the comment section!
Over the last two weeks, collisions with birds have forced two planes to make emergency returns to New York City area airports. It's a problem that stretches back to 2009, when Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger famously ditched the Airbus he was piloting into the Hudson River after a birdstrike disabled the plane's engines. Is it a coincidence? MAD dug deep to find the real cause of this dangerous phenomenon.

Last year, NBA thug Ron Artest changed his name to Metta World Peace in a heroic attempt to put his ugly and violent past behind him. It worked really well — at least until this past weekend, when “Metta World Peace” almost murdered James Harden with an elbow to the head. But why dwell on the negative? The important thing is that he changed his name to improve himself. We hope that others will follow his fine example and change their names as well.
Two high profile trials are currently underway. One involves former Yankee pitcher Roger Clemens and his alleged lies to Congress about using steroids. The other involves former Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards and his use of campaign funds to hide an affair and love child. Two men. Two very different professions. And yet one can’t help but notice…
Everybody likes to make friends…and nobody more so than the Secret Service when they’re in a country that has legalized prostitution! We think the lesson from all this is simple: be careful who you poke.
For his 40th birthday, Sean got a great surprise — a Spy vs. Spy cake! Fortunately for him, his wife Tiana is co-owner (along with her friend Jessica) of Random Acts of Sweetness in Portsmouth, NH. The results turned out pretty freaking amazing! They even based the design on the cover of The Spy vs. Spy Omnibus — on sale now (hint, hint!). We’ll say this, though — if there’s not a file hidden in that cake, they really missed an opportunity.
Recently, aging rocker and NRA board member Ted Nugent gave an interview in which he insinuated that he would kill the president, saying, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” It’s not the first time that Nugent has said something stupid. In fact, Nugent has said so many crazy things over the years that many people think he’s a total whackjob and a danger to society. Which kinda reminds us of someone else: the ever-loquacious mass murderer, Charles Manson. So play along with a little game we call…
