I have a gag cartoon in the Fundalini Pages of MAD Magazine (#542)! It's an incredible honor to be an official member of The Usual Gang Of Idiots; it's surreal for me to even say that. Even when I got my issue in the mail (yes, I have a subscription), it felt like a dream. (It still does!)
I joke around a lot, and maybe that's why I actually got in, but I say with all sincerity: don't give up on those big dreams of yours, they might actually come true. Or as a wise old STINCKER once said, "FOLLOW YOUR BLISS!"
