Mad was great in the late 80s, was a dedicated fan. I did an essay once on the Beatnik edition from 1959.

There was a good one from 1989 on how the hippies had become yuppies.

I imagine that type of satire and humour is outside the Overton window these days. But like most popular culture, in the early 90s it became staid and boring.
