Tired? Run Down? Logy? Make this simple test. Drop your present reading matter in to a glass of water-see how it dissolves into a soggy mess.

Now make the same test with a MAD book. Notice how crisp and firm the cover stays-how those bright MAD pages begin to fizz. In just eigth seconds MAD's mind-rotting ingredients paralyse the cerebellum, bringing blessed relief. So reme
