For 64 years, MAD Magazine has been publishing cutting edge satire and pop culture jabs. They’ve published over 540 issues and is the last surviving title from EC Comics. They’ve been the home for some incredibly talented artist and writers through the years like Sergio Aragones, Paul Coker, Jack Davis and Wally Wood. Most everyone has at one point or another looked through a copy of the magazine and gotten a few laughs.
Now, their current publisher DC Entertainment is doing a MAD Holiday Gift Bag Sweepstakes. But like the magazine, they couldn’t do a normal write-up:
It’s the holidays – and, remember, it’s better to give than to receive! Especially for us, since we can give away a bunch of unwanted junk and pass it off as a prize! One “lucky winner” (and we use the phrase extremely liberally) will get all of the swag pictured, plus a free one-year subscription to MAD! How’s that for a deal? Pretty terrible! But it works for us!
