According to the Consumerist, “Circuit City headquarters has ordered their stores to ‘destroy all copies’ of the latest issue of Mad Magazine” because of a four-page parody of the electronics chain, which Mad has renamed “Sucker City”.
Who knew Circuit City carried Mad?
Update: And I forgot to mention that this is always the wrong reaction to being made fun of – attempts to ban something only draw more attention to it.
Update 2: Circuit City PR guy apologizes, says the mags are going back on sale at the 40 out of 700 stores in their company that sell magazines. He also offers to send the magazine editor a gift card, nice gesture.
