5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully stupid., November 8, 2012
This review is from: Totally MAD: 60 Years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity (Hardcover)
I would be a liar if I said that I was a loyal and steady reader of Mad Magazine in the 60's. However, I read enough of them to remember how they could pull a laugh from anyone. I once caught my father, a career seagoing submariner, coming out of the bathroom with my copy and asking me about one of the skits (is that the correct word)? I don't know that he saw the humor, but I have to give it to him for at least reading the thing.

The beauty of Mad Magazine over the years was that they poked fun of everything and everybody. I remember poking fun at George McGovern and the democratic party which surprised me even in the early 70's.

I place Totally Mad: 60 Years of Humor, Satire, Stupidity and Stupidity by Stephen Colbert right along side the Complete Peanuts series as statement for the eras they represent.

I highly recommend.

Peace always!
