Return of the PHOTO CHALLENGE...

...OK, so maybe it's not a photo, but see if you can guess where this gem comes from...





More to come...

Hmmm... didn't Mad magazine run a parody of OM back in the early 70s? (And if this really is what the picture is, I'd love to see more!)

Re: Return of the PHOTO CHALLENGE...

I would have to say "Mad" or "Cracked" as well.
although I'm not aware of any "OM" movie parody made by either mag, It's probably a single frame or part of another parody.

Wow, you folks are good. It's from the CRACKED magazine adaptation. I'll post the issue number soon - I need to pull it from the OMEGA archives. Here is page 1...

Thats awesome, check out the references to Chucks other movies. He is wearing a Sistine Chapel shirt and there is a picture of Zira from planet of the apes.

Re: Return of the PHOTO CHALLENGE...

Mike, seeing as how you have old stuff like that..do you happen to have any of the old paperback books of Mad and the spin offs like Spy vs Spy and the like? I used to have tons of them. They had the comic shorts by Sergio somebody and each page had a little skit in them.

UPDATE - Yes, here he is...do you all remember these books? Also the ones by William Gaines...these were the best...

DD - yup, I have tons of MAD magazines and paperbacks. I vividly remember having my parents pick up MAD magazine when they went grocery shopping - I think they were 40 cents! My all time favorite was the parody of STAR WARS. Anyway, back to our man Bob...page 3...

Re: Return of the PHOTO CHALLENGE...

These are great. I had no idea "cracked" mag did a parody. I don't suppose you can make a PDF file out of all your scans, can you?
anyway, thanks for posting -- really made my day!
