I have been collecting issues of "Mad Magazine" since I was a child. I fell in love with this crazy, warped humor publication when I first sneaked a copy from a classmate in elementary school. It's satire is uproariously funny, edgy and so politically incorrect. My reading this magazine is probably why I was such a precocious kid and a big reason I gained a love of writing satiric pieces myself. I have a collection of old issues that my husband knows he better not touch, since I guard them jealously. "Mad Magazine" continues to bring readers and fans hilarious parodies of current movies, television shows and cultural trends and issues come out every month, with subscriptions being just a reasonable $16 annually. Some may consider "Mad Magazine" to be stupid and sophomoric and I will not disagree, but it's that very undignified silliness that makes it such fun to read. I can still read through my old issues and find them just as relevant and funny as I did when I first read them, probably more so now, since, as an adult I finally understand what they mean. "Mad Magazine" takes me back to my youth and that's why it has remained my secret guilty pleasure all these years. If you have a teenager at home who is into comic books and such, sharing an issue of "Mad" is a good way to bond with him or her. When they know that Mom or Dad likes "Mad Magazine" too, they seem to regard you a little differently and not see you as such a "decrepit joy buster", which is a good thing. If I am blessed to make it to the age of 100, you will still find me somewhere, laughing like an idiot over my newest issue of "Mad Magazine."
