PICS OF THE LITTER DEPT.
It’s no secret that in MAD #136 there was a picture of the star of Midnight Cowboy and Ray Donovan, Jon Voight, holding an issue of MAD. But what most people DON’T know is that he posed for the picture right in the MAD offices! And what even FEWER people know is that, while cleaning our stock room, we found some never-before-seen outtakes from that day! (What the FEWEST people know is that we also found some disgusting and unspeakable things in that stockroom. But let’s focus on the good!)
