"The New Yorker" Rips Off MAD?

CONDÉ NASTY DEPT.

It was recently brought to our attention that the February 4, 2013 issue of The New Yorker bears more than a passing resemblance to MAD #293 from March 1990. Even more disturbing: this issue of The New Yorker is chock-full of “original” articles such as “Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions at a MoMA Opening”, “A Peek Behind the Scenes at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center” and “Thurber vs. Thurber”. On the positive side: David Remnick’s Fold-In is actually pretty good.

Take a look at our fang-tastic new cover! Access Hollywood debuted it this past Tuesday, and we're pleased to present it here on The Idiotical in all its slightly-higher-resolution glory. As you can tell by Edward and Bella's mopey mugs, we're finally sinking our teeth into The Twilight Saga with a huge parody of all five movies!
