The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
MAD magazine really got into trouble with a 1974 edition.
They’d always been known for bad taste but this took the cake.
The cover ran with the caption, “Mad- The Number One Ecch Magazine”.
Newstands and drugstores refused to display it. Readers complained
– AND THESE ARE MAD READERS! They called the cover arrogant and offensive.
Editor Gaines sent an apology letter to everyone that complained.
Now of course its a big collector’s item. What was on that MAD cover!?!
A hand giving the reader the finger!
I had no correct eligible answers. I hear you say, “What me Worry?”
Well you should have – a little!
Now on to a new Q.:
Win a copy of
my NEW cd CALLED ’30’! – (first anti-band CD) or
my NEWER cd CALLED ‘NEXT”
or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ’07)
or my RECORDING-IT-NOW cd (Summer ’07)

Which covers a greater range of notes, orchestra instruments
or a piano?
Orchestra instruments range from the piccolo and
violin at the top high end, to the contrabasson and string bass
at the low end? Or, to make it tougher, are they the same?
Good luck puzzlers!
