As I get older, I'm slowly getting rid of things I don't need. But before I do I'll share them with all you nice people.

Here's what America was laughing at in the newest issue of Crazy from September 1979
I had Mike Weiss's memoirs of writing for them a couple weeks ago.
He also mentioned in an e-mail having written their parody of Fantasy Island which was twice as long and when published was completely different, learning the hard way that a writer's credit is often just a courtesy.
The teacher against the wall motif was the cover of an issue of Sick that I'll post one of these days.
Parody of the American Express commercial very similar to the one they did a few years earlier.
I doubt even back then grade-school kids had any idea what Confidential Magazine was.
Orville Fenderlob was a caricature of a different celebrity every time they used him, and here there was an interview to justify their Love At First Bite cover.
The inside back cover was a sampler than said “Humor thy Father and Mother”, also recycled from an issue of Sick

Much of the material here is at least a generation old and therefore sometimes has racist and sexist standards we wouldn't conform to today. I try, but can't always do a line-item veto. Remember, if something has stereotypes it's posted in spite of them and not because of them. You're not wrong to be offended, think of it like a friend you like hanging out with 95% of the time but once in a while they embarrass you. My own attitude is to move forward.
Many of the images I posted between 2011-2013 were disappeared by the image bank I was using then but I still have most of the scans and am bringing them back slowly. Be patient.
Some people don't realize you can make images bigger by clicking on them or that there are earlier postings beyond this page. Well, now you know. You're welcome.
