When the FBI Went After ‘Mad’ Magazine | Mental Floss

Just two years later, in January 1960, Agent A. Jones was forced to file a second notice about the shenanigans at Mad. A recent issue had made not one, but two derogatory mentions of Hoover, including one in which he is blatantly and disrespectfully portrayed as being associated with a vacuum cleaner, “The Honorable J. Edgar Electrolux”:  

With Hoover it was all about him and “his” bureau.

In a memo dated November 30, 1957, an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation identified as “A. Jones” raised an issue of critical importance: “Several complaints to the Bureau have been made concerning the ‘Mad’ comic book [sic], which at one time presented the horror of war to readers.”

The war party is like a snowflake. Mustn’t let anyone ruin their good time.

Be seeing you
