Thread Name: Mad Magazine parodies
Subject: RE: Mad Magazine parodies
Casting my memory back over 40 years or so, I come up with:

There's no stories like Poe stories,
Like no stories I know.
If you want a tale that is appalling,
If you want to murmur, shriek and cry,
If you want a tale with bodies falling,
And spirits calling, then Poe's your guy.
There's no stories like Poe stories,
They all fill us with woe.
If you want a tale that's filled with death galore,
With spirits tapping on your door,
And some crazy raven shouting, "Nevermore!"
There's no stories like Poe.

Probably a few errors in details, but that's it in essence.
