On July 4, 2019, Mad Magazine announced it would stop publishing new material after 67 years of providing the sophomoric and infantile humor that 15-year old boys as well as men and women with a 15-year old boy’s sense of humor craved. Thus proving that satirical printed magazines had gone the way of the dinosaur and that the latest generation wouldn’t understand the tactile satisfaction of manually flipping through the pages of a magazine, just like they had no clue at dialing 911 on a rotary telephone. The ghosts of cartoonists Don Martin and Sergio Aragonés came back from the dead to express their regret of the passing of such a revered art form, the printed magazine. Sergio Aragonés also tried to mention to the Twisted Historian that he wasn’t dead yet, but I try not to listen to spirits. The last time I did that, it involved tequila and a femalian sasquatch near Cohutta, Georgia. Some lessons you only have to learn once.
