Remember Alfred?


Do you remember Alfred E. Neuman?

I couldn't help but think of my teenage years when I stumbled across an old copy of Mad Magazine.

When I was in high school reading Mad Magazine was considered being rebellious, and my mother did not understand my desire to read such "trash." If she saw the magazines, games, and movies that teens are exposed to today, she would be aghast, but I think she would quickly realize that I was not as rebellious as she thought I was.

I wonder how time will affect my perception of today's youth. Perhaps, they are not as rebellious as I think they are.

  1. I have fond memories of Mad, much to my father's chagrin. He being a WWII veteran was aghast at a satirical centerfold of the flag in an issue I was reading in 1969. He threw it in the trash and told me not to be buying it. I remember that summer as my oldest brother was third in line to be drafted from Fremont County. He never did get called up but we were on edge.
