When I was a kid, I used to read MAD magazine like it was the only magazine on the planet. So, you can imagine how tickled I was when I spotted this month’s issue on newsstands which featured Mr. Alfred E. Neuman himself enjoying a big ole wedge of watermelon.
That’s the cover on the right. Loyal MAD fans will appreciate the visual joke which pokes fun at Alfred’s perpetually missing front tooth.
The cover story promises a humorous look at “The 50 Worst Things about Food,” although I’m not sure if watermelon is included on that list. I can’t imagine that it is, because I can’t think of a single bad thing about watermelon.
Does anyone have any ideas for one of the “worst things” about watermelon? The only thing I can think of is the feeling you get when you want some watermelon and then you discover that there’s none in your fridge!
