Mad #390 (Nick Meglin and John Ficarra) - Toilet Jokes and Boy Bands Issue - February 2000

The only thing worse than a series of toilet jokes is a five-page article on "How to Become a Big-Time Boy Band Producer".  There are only two types of Mad fans - those who like boy bands and those who do not like boy bands.  Those who like boys bands do not like to see a satire of them.  Those who do not like boy bands do not like to see any articles about them at all.  Therefore, it is obvious that nobody wanted to see this.  The better article in the issue is "9 Signs Lottery Fever Has Spread to Your Town" by Mike Snider.  Thanks are due to artist Ralph Reese for finding room in it for Dilbert, Olive Oyl, Alice the Goon and an Asian (?) version of Alfred E. Neuman.  [JAM 11/9/13]
