I was looking through some old MAD mags and found some octos in them. Anyone else have Mad magazine collections with squid/octos in it?

The first one's title is "Using Kiddie TV To Explain The War On Terrorism".

Nice grabs, Nick! (though the first one is deplorable :roll: )

WTF!

Okay, maybe I can be sort of related to Lee Harvey Oswald, but what MAD has done is just random and uncalled for. MAD just feels like making fun of George Bush and Me at the same time, even if it's not funny anymore. Now that I've written this post, it would be a lovely time for a picnic. :mrgreen:

Last night on SNL (not really MAD, but close enough.) they had Al Sharpton hosting, with a skit 'Al Sharpton's Casa De Sushi' (or something like that) with them showing an octo & squid for sale.
