    It's a baby pacifier that clamps on the baby's cheeks, so it doesn't fall out. Keith Phillip

    WINNERS (Who live in the U.S.) get the February 2019 issue of MAD. It's MAD issue #5, the 20 Dumbest Things of 2018. The "Dumbest Issue" each year is our best selling issue. This is the 5th issue produced by the new LA team. MAD moved to LA December 2017, but I'm still writing for every issue from my Gizneyland studio in NYC. I'm continuing the game and sending out MAD magazines to winner since so many people say they love playing the game. As announced late last year winners of MAD magazine are now for US addresses only. (MAD to Canada was $11.00+ last year to send one copy.) If you live in the US, email me your full name & address and put MAD WINNER in the subject so I can pick it out easily. I'll autograph your MAD with your first name & my name unless you specify Dick's name only. If you'd rather have one of those 35+ year old Alfred E. Neuman pictures, instead of Febriary MAD, put SEND ALFRED PIC NOT MAD in the subject line. Soon, they will be no more of those either. The remaining Alfred E pics have been shipped to MAD in LA. If you won more than once using different names, please just ask for one MAD. If you live anywhere outside of the US email me with WINNER in the subject line and I'll autograph an Alfred E. Neuman photo to you, scan it & email it to you. You can print it out & no one should know the difference. (I've done it quite a few times already and people say it looks fine.) Or, another choice is OMGchad & I can give you a shout out on the Giz Wiz Show as your prize if you want. (Tell me in your email.) Thanks! Dick De. Email me at gizwizbiz@gmail.com
