Mad #193 (Albert Feldstein) - Reality World Issue

Al Jaffee is known as the creator of the "Mad Fold-In" but there is much more to Al than the inside-back-cover.  He is an accomplished artist and an excellent writer.  He has contributed to more issues of Mad than any other artist or writer.  In this issue, he drew Larry Siegel's "Reality World" and converted it from an ordinary article into the best article of the issue.  Siegel & Jaffee parodied Disneyland/Disney World based on an idea by Marc Bilgrey.  The parody shows 17 reality attractions that tell the truth about the 1977 world including "The Pirates of the Middle East," "It's a Crime World After All," and "The Haunted White House" with Nixon et al. to scare the riders.
