CHANCE OF WAYNE DEPT.
DC Entertainment announced that they will be updating Batman’s origin story, revisiting how Bruce Wayne became the Caped Crusader and examining his early days as a crime fighter. To be honest, it was one of the hardest things we’ve ever had to do — finding a way to make fun of such an exciting, innovative and excellent idea (oh, on an unrelated note, MAD is part of DC Entertainment), but we somehow managed to come up with these…
BLASTER OF CEREMONIES DEPT.
LeBron James recently sent out a “save the date” for his upcoming wedding. Weirdly, this coincides with another happy occasion — Hugo Chavez’s funeral! So even though the events are worlds apart, we couldn’t help but notice…

SEAFOOD FOR THOUGHT DEPT.
Yesterday, Bumble Bee announced that they are recalling some of their cans of tuna because the seals were not tight enough and the contents could spoil. Sounds like a perfectly logical explanation. A little TOO logical, if you ask us! All you have to do is take a closer look at a can to see…

How about ex-basketball wacko and noted hair color and piercing enthusiast Dennis Rodman? After watching basketball and eating sushi together, Rodman said he thought Un was a "great guy,” even though the teeny despot is a known human rights violator. (Rodman may not have noticed that, since he is used to dealing with NBA team owners!) An incoherent interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos by Rodman cinched the notion that he and Un are cut from the same cloth — a mentally-challenged, clownbird crazy cloth.
BEHIND THE COMMEMORATE BALL DEPT.
Today marks the 91st birthday of MAD founder and original publisher William M. Gaines! We chose not to bake a birthday cake, because with 91 candles, it would contribute to global warming! (Also, he passed away in 1992.) Instead, we direct those who want to read more about the most unlikely and eccentric businessman ever to read The MAD World of William M. Gaines, written by longtime MAD writer (and a bit of an eccentric himself), Frank Jacobs! It’s available at Wowio.com! Tell them The Idiotical sent you!
