Mad Magazine Goes Quarterly


As a kid, my favourite magazine was Mad Magazine.  Alfred E. Newman didn't worry about anything, but I'll bet he's worried now.

Starting with April's issue #500, Mad Magazine is going quarterly.  Editor John Ficarra said in a statement, "The feedback we’ve gotten from readers is that only every third issue of Mad is funny. So we decided to just publish those."

I used to read Mad like crazy, and I always regarded Cracked as the poor, distant cousin.  Today, with this new thing called the Internet, gets all the clicks and Mad's online presence is feeble.

Dare to select the more compelling online stop:

Mad should spend their extra time on their web presence.
