NOT VERY A-PEELING DEPT.
CARLOS DANGEROUS LIAISONS DEPT.
When we ran the first version of this ad two years ago, we assumed that Sexter would run for a single season before being cancelled. However, now that more dirty messages and nude shots of Anthony Weiner have turned up (dated a full year AFTER his initial sexting scandal broke) this show has been renewed...even if his New York mayoral hopes are being cancelled.
CHEATER RIVERA DEPT.
On Sunday morning, Geraldo Rivera tweeted a nearly-naked selfie, proudly proclaiming, “70 is the new 50.” (To which we proudly proclaim: “Both are still gross to look at.”) However, despite Geraldo’s pride in his appearance, we’ve learned that not all the work on his body was done at the gym! After doing a little cyber-research, we were able to find the original, untouched selfie!
CLASSIC MAD DEPT.
We were saddened by the death of James Gandolfini, whose performance as Tony Soprano inspired many MAD articles over the years. Today we present a Celebrity Snap of the actor (posing with MAD artist Ray Alma), as well as our parody of The Sopranos by Arnie Kogen and Mort Drucker. It first appeared in MAD #389, January 2000.
CLASSIC MAD DEPT.
SKETCHY CHARACTERS DEPT.
THE DYING GAME DEPT.
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!
