HELMET IN A HANDBASKET DEPT.
When Bush family e-mails were hacked last week, among the leaked information were photos of paintings made by none other than former President George W. Bush. We were shocked to learn that W. has an artistic side, but not so shocked by the paintings’ amateurish mediocrity — the very quality we look for in all MAD illustrators! So we were understandably pleased when he accepted our offer to become our newest cover artist. Now get back to work, George! We need the next cover by Thursday morning!
