Mike Snider has been a writer for MAD Magazine since shortly after the invention of the knock-knock joke, appearing in over 200 issues in the past 3 decades (although not as frequently the last couple of years). Despite having written comedy & humor for various other stand-up personages and periodicals, MAD remains his most plausible “claim to fame”…as pathetic as that is. He now lives in Scottsdale, Arizona; roots for the Diamondbacks; and works as a Writer/Editor of both comedy and non-comedy (though some would insist that ALL of his work falls into the latter category).
Why “MAD’s Most-Ostracized Writer”? You’ll have to ask the MAD editors themselves; all I did was start up a blog…they’re in charge of Paranoid Overreaction.
