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.
MAD has a long history of running a wide variety of material on our back cover: fake ads, magazine parodies, comics, and more.
Yesterday, ESPN.com debuted the cover for our upcoming issue, MAD #519! It's time to round up The 20 Dumbest People, Events, and Things of 2012 — this year's pack of offenders includes Lance Armstrong, Mitt Romney, Barack Obama, Amanda Bynes, Rush Limbaugh, Paula Deen and plenty more.
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!
The absence of one particular tooth is a crucial element on most MAD covers. But as you can see below, our next issue's cover art seems to have more than the usual amount of chompers!
That's all your gonna get from us this time. What do you think is the bigger picture here? Get guessing in the comments! (Click here to jump to the comments page.)
