Who else could send us to our graves laughing in delight other than Mad? Answer : Nobody. The boys are ate it again, with these classic spoofs of all our favorite sitcoms, soap operas and cartoons. My personal favoirtes are : When Seasame street joins the vast political right wing and the spoof on Kung-Fu (Kung Fool). You really can't go wrong with mad, aside from Calvin and Hobbes's creator and writer Bill Watterson, these guys are the only ones who can make me laugh out loud while reading the gags. If your new to MAD then this is the perfect place to start, even though I'm too young to have seen all the shows that are in this book I still get a kick out of reading them and you will too. I reccomend getting this one first, before checking out the other books MAD has to offer. This is the perfect gift for anyone at anytime, so cheer them up and make 'em laugh to death!
