Sign of the Times via MAD!


Here's a real sign of the times seen on the ACME magazine rack. Alfred E. Newman, Mr. What, Me Worry looking alarmed, even with the smile still plastered to his face. I did a little research. MAD's editors rarely change their mascot's expression and that is an editorial decision. It's subtle, a tilt of eyebrows, a roundness of eye to accompany the body language and the company.

Of course, standing next to Trump with his trademark What, Me Worry smirk would be enough, without the nuke going off in the background. Trump certainly out-Newmans Newman. Well done, MAD!
