Mad #107 (Albert Feldstein) - Flatbug Issue - December 1966

Al Jaffee introduced the "flatbug" in the "Mad's Puzzle Page" with the warning "that it begins to multiply in fantastic quantities whenever a male and female are placed on a piece of paper."  As advertised, the flatbugs start multiplying and spread out into the next article and throughout Mad #107.  I counted 43 flatbugs.  Feldstein and company loved those running jokes.
