When I bought these as a boy I thought that these were reproductions of actual newspapers of the events. I became confused when I got Nero Fiddles While Rome Burns (or something like that) because I knew that they didn't have newspapers like that when event happened. I also thought the Mona Lisa cover on MAD was possibly the Virgin Mary and that I might burn in Hell for all eternity and worse yet, get slapped around by the nuns if I didn't get rid of my copy. I wasn't the brightest kid in the neighborhood.
