I began reading Mad magazine when I learned how to read. I was lucky, my parents didn't have a problem with Mad, a lot of the other kids were not allowed to read it because their parents thought it was garbage.
I loved the magazine and all the paperbacks that spun off. Anybody remember "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions" or the follow up "Stinging Retorts to Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions". I can't possibly be the only woman who read Mad Magazine. How about it ladies, any other members of my gender fans of Alfred E. Newman?
About the stooges, I didn't pay much attention to them until my son turned about 5 years of age. My husband and son would laugh at the same time over the same bits, up until then I under appreciated the humor. We now are the proud owners of Stooges DVD's. Somebody get the smelling salts for Herb, stat.
