The arrival of MAD magazine in the mail meant two things to us – “Spy vs. Spy” and the fold-in picture that was always at the end. While “Spy vs. Spy” had its moments (who has a bomb under their hat this time?) the fold-in was what we wanted to get to the most and, try as we might, we rarely figured out what would emerge after we folded point A to point B until we did it. With The MAD Fold-In Collection: 1964-2010 you get all the awesomeness of Al Jaffee’s work in a much more presentable, adult fashion than a stack of magazines with gap-toothed cartoons on the front. All of the 410 fold-ins are included and the best part is (or the worst depending how much you enjoy folding paper) each one is also printed with the folded image as well so you don’t ruin a collection of books that would fit nicely on a mahogany shelf.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
