MAD about the NSA Spying Scandal?
We don’t know much about politics, but we know pretty much everybody in the country is a little miffed that the government’s been compiling like…all the data, everywhere forever. One thing we do know is to shut up and defer to those masters of satire at MAD Magazine, so when they asked if we’d like to preview their “War on Privacy” issue (issue #523) with an Al Jaffee fold-in, we said, “Sure!” and that email was immediately forwarded to DARPA’s Total Information Awareness program. We’re sorry, tyrannical overlords! Please don’t black-bag us. Oh oh oh, but if you DO black-bag us, can we be cellmates with Alfred E. Neuman? Oh, and please forward our MAD subscription to Guantanamo for us? Thanks!
