Mad #380 (Nick Meglin and John Ficarra) - Alex Trebek Issue - April 1999

David O'Keefe created the sculptures for the cover of the issue and for "11 Ways Jeopardy! Contestants Can Really Piss Off Alex Trebek" written by Charlie Richards.  The full-color, four-page article was the central feature of the issue.  The best of the eleven is: "Bring along a sock puppet to answer all the questions."  Mr. Trebek purchased the sculpture of himself for his personal collection.

Continuing their excellent parodies of Star Trek movies, Dick DeBartolo wrote and Mort Drucker drew "Star Blecch: Imperfection" for the ninth Trek movie.  Drucker's drawings of Riker and Geordi on page 5 are excellent.  And, all of of the drawings of Donna Murphy capture her beauty with just a few pen strokes.  DeBartolo could not resist bringing Kirk and Spock back for the punchline.
