It's got some smiles but nothing that got me to laugh This is my type of MAD paperback Dave Berg is efficient in painting irreverent and highly satirical scenes of modern day America His humor hasn't aged one bit and it becomes all the sparkling because it features the different types of hypocrisy prominent in people then and now his vignettes about purported masculine dominance usurped by the women were well constructed in that the reactions of his characters were also very realistic It's the kind of humor that forces one to take a good look at himself in the mirror and it's the kind of humor that I actually prefer I think that persistent hypocrisy and indefatigable shallowness are among the worst vices a person could have Finding reprints from Mad magazine on the free cart at the library has been a bit of a revelation to this old pop culture person I can't think of a better way to find how culture has changed in a short time than this book of humor cartoons that both assume cultural norms and mocks them Many of these norms are no longer the norm and that is what is so fascinating Yes the book is dated and that is the point Published in 1964 I just pulled this puppy down off the shelf and reread it for the first time in years A fantastic snapshot of American life in the early sixties through the lens of then contemporary satire Too much fun This is the stuff that helped shape my worldview when I was a kid One or two of these panels I just did not get the reference but since its from the 60's maybe its just me The rest seems spot on Some not really that funny yet makes an interesting point One very funny aspect is an introduction by editor Al Feldstein describing Berg Typical examples of the gentle humour of Dave Berg
