Sound effects are great, aren’t they?  Hey, did anyone ever look at all the old MAD magazine Don Martin cartoons where he had such great sound effects?  That guy was great.  I never got the chance to meet him, which is probably good.  I’d have gushed.  Or ‘Fl’Gursht’ or something.

I remember one, when MAD did one of their square bound super specials, where they had a set of stickers in the magazine.  All the stickers were stamp-style Don Martin sound effect cartoons.  Brilliant.  I believe, though, that the “Poit!” sticker had a drawing of a woman’s breast springing from it’s safe space within her undergarments.  My buddy Jon got his copy of MAD taken away because of that.

I blame Nick Meglin.
