5-0 out of 5 stars For Those Who Need A Good Laugh
If you look at Alfred E Newman, the mascot of Mad magazine, you will notice he favors two well know celebrities, namely Ted Koppel and David Letterman. Ok, so much for my observations. If, you're an average Joe (or even if you are not) Mad magazine can give you a good laugh when you really need it the most. I grew up reading Mad, and it's one of the funniest magazines I ever read. My favorite characters of the magazine are Spy vs Spy. This is a magazine which spoofs movies, TV and life in general. It's a magazine which offers its readers the lighter side of life, a chance to turn red in the face with laughter, a chance to unwind, and a chance to be looked at by family members who think you've went off the deep end!!! Young or old, every culture, every race, and every social background, including people who can afford to use money to blow their nose on, everyone can enjoy this wonderful and witty publication. Presidents have subscribed to this magazine, race car drivers, factory workers, Septic Tank Cleaners, all have faithfully followed this magazine through the years when they really needed a good laugh, and now you can join the ranks of Mad by subscribing to this hilarious publication.

5-0 out of 5 stars This magazine is a lot better than youd think.
I hate to sound like Im exagerrating but this magazine changed my life. My favorite article is called A Mad Look At. Its usually about movies these days but sometimes its a look at modern day things like waterparks and its the funniest thing in the magazine. Monroe is the best new feature. I think the color enhances the magazine and plus it is really fun to read while listening to music. The artists are some of the most creative people Ive ever seen. The art of MAD means a lot more to me than all that Picasso and Chagall crap that old people are so fond of. The art actually reflects our own lives and that is why its so much better than the art you see at those yawn a minute art museums. Its honest and shows the world like it is. Anyways another great thing about this magazine is that its extremely easy to sign up for. You dont need a credit card,all you need is to fill in the subscription form and put it in the mail box. This magazine has elevated stupidity to a true art form.

4-0 out of 5 stars Keep An Open Mind
This a hilarious magazine, as long as you keep an open mind and don't mind when it insults your favorite things. Often I'll be laughing as I'm thinking,"The movie isn't that bad!" or "You don't have to be so mean to the people writing letters to you." I've decided that it's against Mad policy to be nice-even to themselves-so just because they make fun of it doesn't mean they don't like it, they just need something to make fun of. As long as you don't mind the insulting tone (and occaisonally disgusting images of people vomiting), this is a hilarious magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Magazine
I was given this magazine as a birthday gift by some friends. For any adult this is a fantastic gift to give a young adult. It may contain some inappropriate humor, but kids get that already. Your gift will be received with a true compassion and understanding for the hear that went into the giving of this gift. For kids this is an awesome magazine. It is hilariously funny. It is also intelligent humor and doesn't just poke fun at people.

Keep Reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Things Out There!!!
the onion is really great. i've never read an issue that didn't crack me up. it's the news with a comical twist. i could always pick up a free copy in nyc but i just subscribe to it because it's totally worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Funny and More
The Onion is famous for its current-events and popular culture satires, which are consistently spot-on. The brash sense of humor and subtle insights into the personalities and issues being addressed makes this magazine worth its admittedly hefty subscription rate. The magazine contains more material than the website, so you definitely want to get your hot little hands on the paper edition.

But the humor isn't even the largest part of the magazine, just the front. The Onion A.V. Club takes up most of each issue, with in-depth articles on current movies, music, books, personalities, and more. It has a distinctly New York-oriented bent, as given away by things like concert listings for NYC, but most of it is applicable to the avant-garde and the hip-n-happening nationwide.

This magazine is an emblem of its age. Get it, read it, study it, and inject it directly into your bloodstream. Then you'll never wonder what's REALLY going on in the world around you again.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT
This is the funniest thing i have ever read. It makes fun of everything and is great.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Journalistic Satire Ever Put To Paper
When the satire in MAD Magazine™ ain't quite doin' the trick, I turn to The Onion™'s unbelievably hilarious write-ups that take shots at just about everything & everybody you can imagine. From the complex intricacies of geek culture (Nate Orenstam's Op-Ed "Who Says Java Programmers Don't Have A Sense of Humor?"), "local" stories ("Church Group Offers Homosexual New Life In Closet"), and world events ("India's Top Physicists Develop Plan To Get The Hell Out of India"), no one is safe from the satirical wrath and wit of this weekly publication! Offtimes, just the titles of the articles alone (like "Adam Sandler Fans Disappointed By Intelligent, Nuanced Performance") send me into fits of barely-controllable laughter (My personal fave: "Special Olympics Tee-Ball Stand Pitches Perfect Game")! And funnier still is the fact that some folks and governmental agencies from around the world have read some of these fine little bits of journalistic parody and mistook them for actual news pieces!

If you wish to see a preview of what you can expect from "America's Finest News Source"™, check out the online edition at TheOnion.com. But just so you know, the web site features only part of the content that's available in the corresponding print edition. If you wanna get it all, you're gonna hafta subscribe...

Fair warning: the content of most Onion articles tend to be of an adult nature in content and language. Strongly recommended for mature readers only!

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Skip a Single Word
Among the magazines I read (The New Yorker, The Economist, Atlantic Monthly, blah blah blah), Funny Times is the only one I read cover to cover. I start at the beginning and read it straight through, without skipping a word. I don't want to miss anything!

There are columns by Will Durst, Jim Hightower, Dave Barry, Andy Borowitz, and cartoons -- Tom the Dancing Bug, Too Much Coffee Man, Ted Rall, The K Chronicles.

The only bad thing I can say about Funny Times is that the ink comes off on your fingers, just like a regular newspaper. So keep a bottle of hand sanitizer nearby when you read it.

4-0 out of 5 stars The best part of the newspaper
This monthly tabloid delivers 24 pages of the best part of the newspaper - editorial cartoons and humor columns. Topics range from politics to relationships to all the quirks of American life in the new millenium. With authors as diverse as Dave Barry, Andrei Codrescu, and Dr. Science, and dozens of cartoons in each issue, the left-of-center political viewpoints are interspersed with plenty of silly fun.

4-0 out of 5 stars A collection of political cartoons and funny stories
Are you the type of person who picks up a newspaper or magazine and reads the editorial cartoons first? Are you familiar with the work of Tom Tomorrow, Marian Henley, and Ted Rall? Each month the Funny Times provides a tabloid-sized collection of more than a hundred left-leaning political cartoons and humorous observations on life. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for we lazy
This item is perfect for those of us too lazy to poke around our old back issues of Mad magazine in order to find that important, life-changing article. This title contains reprints of items previously published in Mad magazine. I can't say that I recall having had ever seen anything new or different or unique or really all that funny in this, but my personal collection of back issues of Mad magazine weighs several tons, so this title is a lot of help.

This magazine is super thick, giving the buyer several pages to read, or to use in whichever other way the reader chooses. Most are embroidered with "Drawn Out Dramas". ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Hiawatha's Valence Bonding...And Much More!
'AIR' is a niche humor magazine for scientists and the scientifically literate. It features both bogus science spoofs such as the "Hiawatha's Valence Bonding" poem (which, though clever is interminably long) and real science abstracts and articles, which are, for my money, much more amusing. How can you top these real scientific articles: "Are Nonproper Chopstick Holders Clumsier Than Proper Chopstick Holders in Their Manual Movements", "Pharmaceutical Evaluation of Liquorice Before and After Roasting in Mice", "Masticatory Mandibular Movements for Different Foods Textures Related to Onomatopoetic Words", and of course for the chemists in the audience, "Dinuclear Cyano Complexes of Cobalt (III) and Iron (III) Containing Noninnocent 1,2,4,5-Tetrakis (2-Pyridinecarboxamido) Benzene Bridging Ligands" from the journal 'Inorganic Chemistry'. (I have taken quite a bit of inorganic chemistry in my day but have no clue how chemistry lost its innocence.)

The journal is funny, and very well written. Unfortunately, it is very expensive and thin (normally 32 pages). I like it, and so will most others with a scientific background. My only major complaint, other than the rather steep price per page is that some of the keynote articles (which are actually frequently the least entertaining in an issue) go on forever, for instance, the "Hiawatha's Valence Bonding" poem is 13 pages long in a 32 page magazine. Yes it's a good concept, but it takes up a lot of room to the detriment of other, funnier things.

If you want a taste of the magazine in summary format for a fraction of the price, I would recommend any of the 'AIR' or 'Ig Nobel Prizes' books as a reasonable alternative.

5-0 out of 5 stars Niche humor = belly laughs
AIR is a niche humor magazine essentially geared towards those who work in the scientific community, but equally well-suited to anyone who reads popular science books (e.g. Gould, Sagan, Gribbin, etc.) or anyone who once paid attention in his/her university science course. This is the magazine that puts together the much-forwarded Ig Noble awards every year.

Drawing from absurd, but very much real, headlines and abstracts in peer-reviewed journals and parodying the standard journal publication format, this is the only magazine that ever made me laugh I cried so hard. There are plenty of groan-eliciting bits, but when they hit it just right, there is no better humor magazine.

4-0 out of 5 stars HilAIRious fun
This journal, as its masthead declares, is dedicated to "results that cannot or should not be reproduced." With columns and projects ranging from "The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists" (your ponytailed colleague is eligible for nomination), to absolute gems like the annual IgNobel Awards, Harvard's most distinguished journal pokes fun at the often self-inflated and bone-dry discipline of science.
On the downside, if you're not interested in discovering mellifluous chemical names sixteen or more syllables long(for example), then you might be better off sticking to the miniAIR newsletter for free. ... Read more
