06/06/2013 - TAG BANNED FROM GALLERY FOR OFFENSIVE MATERIAL FROM THE SAME PEOPLE WHO SCREAM ABOUT THEIR "SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS" BEING TAKEN AWAY...(FREEDOM OF SPEECH? CAPITOLISM CENSORSHIP?)
Inspired by one of MAD Magazine's most iconic classic and most controversial covers #166 April 1974!
"The most notorious Neuman-free cover was #166 (April 1974), which featured a human hand giving the profane "middle finger" gesture while declaring Mad to be "The Number One Ecch Magazine."Some newsstands that normally carried Mad chose not to display or sell this issue." - QUOTE PROVIDED BY WIKIPEDIA.
"Reaction to the "finger" cover of MAD #166 (April 1974) forced Gaines to send letters of apology to irate readers and retailers, signed by both Gaines and Feldstein. According to Nick Meglin, who thought up the gag as an office joke, the caption originally read "the number one magazine of good taste," but for some reason the other caption was used; the reaction would likely have been similiar with either caption." - QUOTE PRIVIDED BY COLLECTIBLY MAD WRITTEN BY GRANT GEISSMAN.
(A PHOTO COPY OF THE "LETTER OF APOLOGY" WILL BE PROVIDED FOR EVERY ONE OF THESE TAGS BOUGHT OR TRADED!)
