The MAD crystal ball!

Rescued a copy of The MAD Artists Special #9 from a junk shop in Finsbury Park t'other day. 10p well spent! No date on the cover, but I'm putting it somewhere around the early 1980s. Lots of nice stuff inside. Here are a couple of interesting Al Jaffe strips lifted from a section titled, Some Idiot-Proof Products To Come...

All good Luddite stuff. Bang on description of Facebook Scrabble! Although, not all of us cheat you know? Ahem.

As for the magic typewriter...Automatic margin settings and spacings? Memory tapes which correct grammar, spelling and phrasing? It'll never happen.
