The Obama Dive Bar Girl — What Was She Saying?

A BLANK DEPOSIT DEPT.

By now you’ve seen this picture of “dive bar girl” Madalyn Starkey posing with the President. You know the face. You know the point. But you don’t know what she said! Or do you?!? (You’re so secretive, you little minx, you!) We wrote a few ourselves — click through and share your own in the comments section!  

Celebrity Fashion — MAD Asks, “Who Wore it Better?”

THE DOPPELGANGER’S ALL HERE DEPT.

Whenever two celebrities wear the same outfit, there’s always a stupid article about who looked better in it. So we decided we want in on that action! After all, stupid articles are pretty much our bread and butter! Join the democratic process — cast your votes in the comment section!

The Real Cause of the Recent Airplane-Bird Collisions

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

Over the last two weeks, collisions with birds have forced two planes to make emergency returns to New York City area airports. It's a problem that stretches back to 2009, when Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger famously ditched the Airbus he was piloting into the Hudson River after a birdstrike disabled the plane's engines.

ARTIST TRAVEL FOREMAN ON BIRDS OF PREY

“I'm having a tremendous time taking on the BIRDS OF PREY characters. Its so rare that I get to draw a Superhero book that I've forgotten how great it is to draw capes and costumes. This is a bittersweet situation because Jesus Saiz was doing such pitch-perfect work on the book, but I hope people will enjoy my work on these issues.”

 

ARTIST DAVID FINCH ON BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT

“Gregg Hurwitz coming on to BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT is a total game changer for this book. His stories are vicious, cruel and dark, but they are also incredibly humane and insightful and well written. I don't think that I need to tell Gregg Hurwitz fans how great a writer he is, but for those comic book readers who have not had the chance to experience his work, it's going to be a big surprise and a hell of a ride.

ARTIST CHRIS BURNHAM ON BATMAN INCORPORATED

“Oh, man, I am so excited for this book to come out! Grant and I have put our all into making this the best reading experience possible. We're trying to do away with the widescreen movie-wannabe comics of the last ten or fifteen years and make the comicbookiest comics we're capable of. Breaking borders, impossible perspectives, intricate panel interplay, sound effects, speed lines, splash pages, and some stuff that I'm not quite sure how to put into words. Words are Grant's department, anyway!

When Other Notorious Characters Change Their Names Like Ron Artest

NBA-HOLE DEPT.

Last year, NBA thug Ron Artest changed his name to Metta World Peace in a heroic attempt to put his ugly and violent past behind him. It worked really well — at least until this past weekend, when “Metta World Peace” almost murdered James Harden with an elbow to the head. But why dwell on the negative? The important thing is that he changed his name to improve himself. We hope that others will follow his fine example and change their names as well.
