Crisis of Infinite Episodes - MAD Presents Shazamwich!

When the short was first announced, it was a bit disappointing that some of the previously used material from the animated MAD series was going to be repurposed for DC Nation. On the bright side, some of the MAD shorts, like this one, were brilliant an had been tragically overlooked by the core superhero audience. Cleverly playing off of the acronym SHAZAM! (wisdom of Solomon, strength of Hercules, etc.) an attempt was made to describe the Shazamwich... which was utterly disgusting. Flavor of Sausage, texture of Ham, nutrients of Apples, chalkiness of Zinc, the Apples mentioned earlier, calcium of Milk, heartiness of Meatloaf (two Ms?), color of White bread, stickiness of Ice pops, festiveness of Cake, and convenience of a Hot pocket. Maybe its just my Achilles heel for sandwiches, but this was another gem.

DC Nation Short Count: 0009
