Don Martin's Mona Lisa

The box of the complete works of Mad's Don Martin

Christmas does come with a lot of noble sentiments, but for some people, it really boils down to the presents … they’re so much fun. It is just like everybody has a birthday on the same day! I love the presents. They’re fun to open, and if you’re lucky they are fun afterwards too. Santa Claus gave J a two tonne, I mean tome of everything Don Martin ever did for Mad magazine. It’s also got lots of background goss. I think J likes it, but I’ve had trouble tearing myself away from it. It came from academic remainders where, in there old fashioned newspaper catalog they described it as “A splendid offering, this is a real collector’s item.” Santa couldn’t resist it.
