Circuit City has apologized for their temporary hissy fit over Mad Magazine's "Sucker City" ad parody and will begin selling America's favorite pre-teen humor magazine once again. Better yet, they got an embarrassed PR goon gifted with a Mad-style sense of humor to write the apology note!
As a gesture of our apology and deep respect for the folks at MAD Magazine, we are creating a cross-departmental task force to study the importance of humor in the corporate workplace and expect the resulting Powerpoint presentation to top out at least 300 pages, chock full of charts, graphs and company action plans. In addition I have offered to send the MAD Magazine Editor a $20.00 Circuit City Gift Card, toward the purchase of a Nintendo Wii....if he can find one!Excellent response, Circuit City. Harvey Kurtzman himself would be hoo-hah proud. Or, in the immortal words of Bill "Chicken Fat" Elder: "Portzebie."
