    I read it as a kid in the mid-1960s. A classic magazine!

    I had older cousins who already had extensive collections when they turned me on to it, so I could dive right in and not come up for hours.

    It twisted me good and permanently.

    Funny family story: my younger brother used to tease my kids when they were little. But I got him back.....

    When his son was born and I saw him for the first time, I noticed he looks like Alfred E. NEWMAN!....LOL...

    He is now 12 and still looks like Alfred....lol...

    Every once in a while I will blurt out "what me worry!" And he gives me the stink eye....lol...

    It was a cultural advantage to have Mad Magazine in my head. Thank goodness I had an older sister who introduced me.

    I still use Alfred E. Newman quotes regularly, like when giving a wedding toast:

    A man is not complete until he's married. Then he's finished!

    Mad mags were around the house when I was a kid in the 60s. Loved them. Dad had issue #1.

    Bought a very old Miles Davis LP and the cover art seemed familiar. Was Don Martin!

    I bought a bag full of Mad books at a yard sale when I was 12 years old. It ruined my brain for life.

    I have the Totally Mad CD rom set from the late 1990s. Nothing runs the software anymore and the content is in some sort of proprietary format. Do they sell them on a flash drive?
