COMBINING FRIDAY'S DUAL THEMES OF CHEAP GAGS AND BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: Because you can find everything on the web, here's the classic Mad Magazine treatment of the original Battlestar Galactica. Of all the many, many things I read in Mad Magazine, the ones I remember most vividly are the not-appropriate-for-children parody of The Eyes of Laura Mars (The Eyes of Lurid Mess, and holy crap, Tommy Lee Jones, Doc Cochran, and Clayton Endicott the Third were in that?); two vignettes in "The Lighter Side Of ..." (one where a guy gets mugged for his expensive $50 designer running shoes and another where a guy tells his girlfriend he has a surprise for her and she comes out of the bedroom naked to see him with his parents), the dopey parody of Heaven Can Wait, a Don Martin Rime of the Ancient Mariner (I think) spoof with a cursed skateboarder who searches for the perfect half-pipe to skate, and this Battlestar Galactica piece.
