Mad #494 (John Ficarra) - 50 Worst Things About the Internet Issue - October 2008

Only 50?  What about that cyber-demon that makes your cursor jump when you are writing a long email message?  Or, that North Korean hacker who steals all of your credit card info?  I hate when that happens.  Writer Scott Maiko outdid himself with his office supply catalog parody ("Stuples").  Who knew that they stocked "Micronesian Coin Wrappers"?  Other favorites are the "Navajo-to-Bulgarian phrase book & dictionary", "Ticonderoga Pre-Chewed Pencils", and the "All-Umber Crayola 64-Pack".  The best drawing of the issue is the fast-food restaurant by Peter Bagge.  We have all been there.  [JAM 12/16/2014]
