What, me worry? / Alfred E. Neuman

I remember Mad Magazine – it looks as if it is still running – and Alfred E. Neuman.

Since his debut in Mad, Neuman’s likeness, distinguished by jug ears, a missing front tooth, and one eye disquietingly lower than the other, has graced the cover of all but a handful of the magazine’s 450+ issues. His face does not translate well to profile, and thus he has almost always been shown in full frontal view or in silhouette.


Why does his face keep passing through my mind now?
