Mad #171 (Albert Feldstein) - Sting Issue - December 1974

Richard Nixon had already resigned when Mad #171 hit the newsstands but the cover was still appropriate.  The Norman Mingo parody of the Redford/Newman movie shows Nixon with a subpoena, some campaign contributions and IRS Form 1040.  V.P. Agnew has a handful of money and a payoff envelope.  Inside, Arnie Kogen and Mort Drucker take over with "The Zing" that closely mirrors the movie with excellent caricatures.  The Nixon administration gets several more barbs in "The Mad Crisis Primer" and "Poor Richard's Almanac."

As we all know, nothing is sacred for humor magazines and Frank Jacobs proves it with his "Bible Rave," a parody of teen fan magazines.  "Leonard Lionfodder" dishes gossip in "Bible Babble," a full page is devoted to "The Terrible Rumors That Torture Sampson!" and readers are encouraged to join the "Moses Fan Club."

Look for Jiggs in "The Zing" and Bill Gaines in "The Lighter Side of Dieting."

The movie in Chapter 8 of "The Mad Crisis Primer" is "Deep Sinus."
