First, my condolences to Mr. Jacob's family and friends. Of course you know what a treasure he was to you personally, but have you any idea of how FUNNY he was in the pages of MAD Magazine? His song parodies used to bring me to tears of laughter as I began singing them (in my room, of course) before I could even finish the first verse he had written - of anything. They brought such joy to this Junior High nerd. I thank him wholeheartedly for the gift of such hearty laughter. (I think Irving Berlin was just sore because he didn't think of those clever verses first...) May your fondest memories of Mr. Jacobs comfort you all, and hopefully bring many warm smiles and a belly-laugh or two - after all, that was the gift he bestowed on so many generations of MAD Magazine readers. I think he would probably still appreciate hearing it. Try it; sing some of his parodies and see what happens. Be well.
