It may be rotten, but Mad humor never grows old

For many years, Mad Magazine was the shining example of sarcastic humor for adults. It was apolitical in the sense that everyone was fair game and there was no paid advertising because the publishers felt that it would restrict their range of targets. Young people also enjoyed the magazine, I was fortunate when I was in middle school that one of my friends would bring his copy to school and allow me to read it. Even the creators of the magazine were satirized in the pages of Mad.
This book maintains those high (or as the publishers would say low) standards of humor. It is often stupid and ridiculous, yet it is filled with dialog that sometimes has subtle and double meanings. Unlike many of the other books from Mad, this one contains no storylines that were framed in a historical context of current events. Therefore, the modern reader can easily appreciate the story. Given what passes for humor in the modern world, this book and the others like it are shining examples of good, clean fun.
