Yes, that's right, the Spy vs Spy game is #1 in the iTunes App Store for the iPhone! (And it's #2 for iPad, which is no small potatoes.) That means it's trumping the addictive "Angry Birds", the cathartic "Fruit Ninja", and even the exhilarating "National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Hi-Def Radar"!
On May 10, The Daily Show host and all around mensch Jon Stewart ended the show with a plug for Planet Tad (by MAD writer and head-writer of The Daily Show Tim Carvell)! The book is on sale now — so any of you who were waiting for an official endorsement from Stewart before deciding to buy it, you’re all out of excuses!
The Planet Tad book is officially on sale!!! New from Harper Collins, the book expands on the trials and tribulations of our hero, Tad, as he tries, desperately, to survive seventh grade.

This shouldn’t come as any kind of surprise, but it’s a fact that anyone who works at MAD doesn’t have much of a life. Which means that even on a day off, we still manage to think about MAD! But sometimes that’s a good thing. Like when we come across a cool, weird piece of MAD memorabilia (MADorabilia, if you will) — like this old 3-D postcard made in 1958 by Eden Plastics Corp of NY. Just look at that weird knock-off Alfred! If you have images of vintage MAD/Alfred E. Neuman stuff (even if it’s bootlegs), share it with us in the comments section!
We know what you’re thinking. In this age of digital photography and Photoshopping, it would be oh so easy for us to take a photo of the First Lady shopping at Target yesterday and fill her cart with a treasure trove of MAD books, DVDs, T-shirts, Spy Halloween costumes and more in a desperate attempt to elevate our status and drum up business for our ersatz line of products. But you would be wrong! It wasn’t “oh so easy!” It was actually a lot of work!
