Exclusive: History Lesson From MAD Magazine

Leave it to MAD Magazine to provide some historical "zingers" that have been forgotten.

Next week on October 23, MAD Magazine #524 is on sale. That's a pretty high number and it's great that it's been able to get there. Each issue is always full of different sorts of satire. Check out the cover.

Looks like there's more Man of Steel action popping up, just in time for the home video release.

Besides the usual sorts of jokes, this one actually has a historical lesson...sort of. Okay, maybe not really.

We've been given an exclusive look at a feature called, "Zingers that History Forgot," written by Frank Jacobs with art by Rick Geary.

I loved reading mad and cracked when I was younger, good doorway to more adult humor
