    I used to have a copy with the 'finger' cover, eventually gave it away.

    The early editions were great too.

    I was told I was too young for such left wing propaganda. But my older sister bought it (much to my father's chagrin).

    I wasn't allowed to read it but she'd leave it out after buying. I was up earlier than everyone else in the house and I'd check it out. Enjoyed the fold out over and over along with Spy vs Spy and other comic like things in there. The wordage was above my level.

    I read it in the 80s as a kid but haven't looked at one in a long time... probably the early 90s.

    there was one strip that sticks with me and still makes me chuckle. Guy visiting his buddy in a hospital who's hooked up to life supporting machines. He's begging his friend to pull the plug and his friend is refusing because he can't do that. The guy in the bed asks his friend if he won't do it out of friendship or because he doesn't want to see him suffer anymore, would he do it for a Miller Light. The next panel is the plug coming out followed by a panel with his friend sitting enjoying a Miller Light.

    the last panel still cracks me up. I forget the name of that artist but I always went strait for his stuff as well as spy vs. spy.

    You mean they give you the first issue for free, then you're hooked and can't stop buying them?

    Mad was awesome. Back about 1969 or so the family moved into a new (for us) home that needed a tree in the front yard. So I planted a small norwegian maple and named it Arthur. It's still there and today one of the prettiest trees in the neighborhood, especially in the fall.

    I remember "ploobadoof"... the sound of Wonder Woman removing her bra.

    Oh, that is SOOO Cool.. I remember Arthur. He was an avocado plant as I recall. I have named a few plants Arthur over the decades. Way to go!

    I LOVED Sergio Aragones's 'marginals' the little cartoons in the margins.
    And, of course, Spy Vs. Spy.
