Here's another issue of Crazy just like last week, from August 1976.

This cover is by Bob Larkin, no relation to editor Paul Laikin even though he used similar pseudonyms. Photobucket Photobucket This is typical of the parodies they did in anticipation of a movie yet to come out. They didn't get screeners, or even stills, and here's an attempt to be the first to cash in on the 1976 production of King Kong without knowing anything about it, not even who the actors would be. Here's the parody by Len Herman and Ernie Colón. Photobucket Notice this article illustrated by Bill DuBay gets the captions mixed up. Photobucket Don Orehek Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Alan Kupperberg Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Eden Norah was Paul Laikin's daughter. Photobucket Jack Sparling Photobucket Photobucket Tony Tallarico Photobucket In case you were wondering, the foreign words are complete gibberish. One letter doesn't seem to actually exist. The results were similar in other languages that use a Cyrillic alphabet. The Russian translation is literally “Kató of lyuléya and mu slàdko páprits auto ѝ th th ss náni E, náni mámino deténtse”.

The Italian dialogue makes slightly more sense but not much, translating to “Siri, the remains megono direct mission German Hercules”. If I had an iPhone, I'd say this into it to see what it would do. Photobucket Photobucket Ray Billingsley Photobucket Murad Gumen Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
