If you were in our offices this past week, you might have thought they were filming an episode of “Hoarders”! MAD stuff everywhere! We filled 15 dumpsters, sent another 185 boxes to offsite storage and we still have more MAD stuff than we know what to do with. But don’t panic. We expect to be moved, unpacked and ready for funny business by Monday, October 24, 2101. (This is not a typo.)

It was illustrated by the one and only Mort Drucker! (Yep, the very same Mort Drucker who used to draw covers for the Bob Hope comic book.)
We came across a big stack of them in the stock room, but as you can see, there was a limited number produced:
So, do you want one of your own? You DO? Luckily, they're easy to get: mail us a self-addressed STAMPED envelope that will fit the 3.5" x 5.5" card. We'll pop one in there, seal it with a kiss and send it back your way. One per customer, and make sure it's stamped! Send it to:
