IT'S A MAD WORLD: Germany

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

In Germany, MAD is subtitled "das intelligenteste magazin der welt", ie: "the smartest magazine in the world". Kind of fitting, actually, since studies have shown that people with a sense of humor are smarter, happier, and more successful than crabby people.
I can't guarantee any of the joy or success, but if you take some time to decipher these comics from the original Deutsch language, you'll at least be slightly more educated than you were before.

this whole issue is some kind of hip-hop special edition, and this is the first of several articles about rappers; this is basically a satire of "hip-hop reality vs. hip-hop fantasy"....
