Mad for Mad

When Aimers was little she used to idolize her uncles, Jeff and Rick. They were like the coolest thing going when I was a kid. I used to spend the night at my Grandma's and Jeff and Rick would sleep until like noon, which I thought was neat. When they did wake up they would yell at my brother and I and then start torturing us. They would chase us around the house with rubber band hand guns and also bb guns. It was a real game of cat and mouse, my brother and I having to run to miss the rubber bands or bb's. They also liked to hold us down and blow motor boats with their lips onto our faces. When they weren't chasing us, blowing up matchbox cars with fire crackers, setting the next door field on fire, or giving noogies, they were reading MAD magazine. To this day I have a secret love of Alfred E. Newman and MAD magazine.

What a couple of wesienheimers, Jeff and Rick. My brother, who's 40, still reads MAD. I wonder if they still publish Cracked.

Your name sounds German, I am also German, well some German...I'm also Swedish and sometimes Swiss. Your brother must also be a wesienheimer if he reads MAD magazine. Boy, do I feel sorry for you if you went through some of the same sorts of things as me, when I was a young German Swedish Swiss.
