Mad Magazine: Sheik of Araby!

Sheik of Araby!

Here is a quick little story from Mad Magazine issue #3 which was in news stands January-February 1953.  I grew up reading Mad, Cracked, and Crazy magazines in the 1970’s (In addition to Conan, Eerie, Creepy, and coveted copies of Vampirella). We always had these magazines laying around the house and often kept a box of unread issues to break out during our family’s summertime road trips in the station wagon.  I still find it amazing that Mad started way back in 1952.  This story spoofs the Foreign Legion movies that were still popular and still being produced at this time–particularly Beau Geste.
