Spring is here, and we’re in a sporting mood. Let’s head down to the Sports Atrocity and see what’s on sale.

Oh, you haven’t heard of Sports Atrocity? It’s only your one-stop shop for impractical outdoor wear and athletic gear. If you don’t have one near you, you can browse their mailing catalog in the upcoming MAD magazine #527. Introduce your child to extreme mountain triking, or buy a sexy number for your lady to wear. (It’s practically a gift to the mosquito population as well!)

Or maybe, like us, you’re afraid to go outdoors. Or sweat. Or think about exercise. In that case, read the preview below purely for its comedic value. Nobody’s going to ask you to do anything more strenuous than scroll down, baby, shhh, shhh, it’s okay. Just enjoy this contribution from writer Jeff Kruse and artist Scott Bircher.

Well at least it’ll be easy to find your cap when it comes down.
