Mad v. Cracked

When I was growing up, there seemed to be a competition between the magazines Mad and Cracked. As I recall, Cracked was never as sharp as Mad was… even their mascot, Sylvester P. Smythe, was just a janitor. Alfred E. Neuman was and is, of course, the Father of our Country.

Cracked is still around, surprisingly. Mad was absorbed by the Time Warner monster and introduced color pages a few years back… and advertisements.
