    I totally agree with Alan’s approach. We are adults and can ignore people if we choose to.

    But back to the more important topic of MAD Magazine - I first encountered Alfred E. Newman when I was 7 years old and subscribed until I was 18. I never missed an issue!

    I will admit that the whole idea of Alfred E Newman was funny.

    It's a lot easier (and I think healthier in the long run) to suggest you all just ignore each other.

    Ah, yes! Sex! In Podkayne of Mars there's a scene where Podkayne is locked in a room with a caged monster and she can barely stay beyond it's reach. The implied threat that she'll be given to the monster if she doesn't cooperate is obvious, and in her description of the monster Podkayne makes a parenthetical remark that "There was no doubt that it was a male. Ugh! I swear it was bad enough to make a girl join a convent." (quoted loosely from memory)

    Considering
    Podkayne of Mars was a book for teenagers/tweenagers written in 1962 that was pretty darn graphic and naughty.

    I think the 1960s Batman TV series had a very educational effect on me.
