About MAD Magazine:
MAD is America's longest running and best-selling magazine with that name. For over 60 years, MAD has been synonymous for "excellence in low standards." With its grinning, gapped-toothed idiot mascot, Alfred E. Neuman, "gracing" its front cover, MAD satirizes politics, celebrities, sports and more in its print and digital editions, and also on its daily humor blog (which is updated daily, hence the term "daily humor blog"). MAD's most legendarily moronic features include Spy vs. Spy, The Fold-In, "A MAD Look at..," Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions and its iconic TV and movie parodies. MAD's contributors - widely known as "Usual Gang of Idiots" - include such notable names as Al Jaffee, Sergio Aragones, Peter Kuper, and Tim Carvell - although they wisely prefer to downplay their association with the magazine.
