MAD is the world’s leading satire magazine published under that title. Started in 1952, it was the brainchild of William M. Gaines, who has been operating on a reduced work schedule since his death in 1992. Although MAD Magazine has never won the coveted Pulitzer Prize, its writers continue to use many of the same words as the award-winning authors!

Best of all, once you’re done reading it, you can die in peace, with a smile on your stupid face. We’ll miss you, but we’ll still have the memories and your money!
