Mad Bomb!

It’s a holiday weekend, and on holiday weekends with less people watching television, we can usually be sure we will be watching marathons of old television programs or movies. Personally, I always look forward to the re-runs of James Bond movies. This holiday, no such luck.

Oh well. There is always Mad and its satires of Bond. They can be more entertaining than the movies themselves. Especially when drawn by master caricaturist Mort Drucker. This particular feature is from Mad #165, from 1974.

P.S. Baffled by the last panel? Mark Spitz was the big medal winner for swimming in the 1972 Olympics. He earned 7 gold medals in swimming events, a record not topped until Michael Phelps earned 8 in 2008.
