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."
THE EX-FACTOR DEPT.
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.

A VIEW TO A SHILL DEPT.
Do you have a boring door that’s full of stupid, boring nothingness? God, that door is the worst! The WORST! But now you can class things up by disguising it as the entrance to the Black Spy or White Spy Headquarters! These posters were originally created for MAD’s offices – but are available to the public for the very first time! Click here for the chance to buy your very own prints. You can get all of the style of the MAD offices without enduring that haunting smell!
REESE IN PIECES DEPT.
When Reese Witherspoon’s husband was pulled over for DUI over the weekend, she acted as any normal human being would: by pulling out her fading “celebrity card,” informing the officer that he was “about to find out who I am.” Despite an apology today — in which she blamed her rant on “one drink too many” — it’s now pretty clear exactly who she is.
A FLU GOOD MEN DEPT.
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!
