Labelling this post as Scamorabilia is a little off the mark, but someone has to pick up Tawny's slack.

Pfft. Should have had him nursing a stubby, that would have got him over the line. Now that's real Australian cricket in suburbia.

Sterile A-grade shirt-tucked-in nonsense has been done to death.

Yes, I saw them all. Excellent. Made me wish I had not tossed out all my 1970s "Cricketer" and "Australian Cricket".

I had an extensive MAD magazine collection starting from the late 70s. I pretty much bought every edition for years. Saved 'em for 20-25 years.... numerous moves of house. Don't know where they are now, but I'm pretty sure I ditched them.

I think I binned them sorta right on the cusp "why bother keeping them?" and true nostalgia value. Bah.

Same with my Noonan's Bakery footy card collection [full set], and my Kiss card collection [full set – and I never even liked Kiss] and numerous other curios that I kept for decades. Gawn.

I do have a working Nintendo Donkey Kong Jr. in its box with the instructions that I've been told could nudge the $1,000 mark on EBay. Haven't looked into it.

Bloody loved Mad comics. I had piano lessons for two years as a nipper and after my shot, had to wait on the verandah while some other poor sibling poked around at the ivories. The old lady teacher had a big box of Mad comics for the waitees and I can remember far more of the comics than I can about the lessons.

Apart from chopsticks of course.

oh dear A MAD collective is here.

The greatest magazine ever.

Alfred E Newman a 'living' legend!

Is still reflexively refer to The Poseidon Adventure as The Poopsidedown Adventure and although I mostly call the "telephone" the "telling bone" I sometimes call it the "Fone Bone".

Lou

TT, you don't say 'electrickery' habitually, do you?

Captain Squint from Jaws still makes me chortle.

Tony Tea

Yes, and "touch wood".

The Don has risen

Yes and the classic comment,,
We need a bigger boat

Big Ramifications

Heh? That was famous for being in the movie, not MAD.

Stick to your bad puns or get with the program, sizzlechest.

Big Ramifications

I "randomly" found that just then. Was searching for a pic of Omen Damien in the graveyard, and then I followed a link.

Is it just me, or do people consider that Damien is the EVIL SPELLING of the name? I'm not fooling, the thought always crosses my mind when I meet someone called Damian/Damien.
