When MAD magazine’s “Maddest Writer” Dick Debartolo gave Part 5 of his multi-part video tour of the MAD offices in New York, we could help but notice their vintage Star Wars pinball machine. Here’s what Dick had to say about the artifact in the MAD magazine conference room:
Another piece of very important office equipment is the pinball machine. We come in here and we do lunch. What we do is actually gamble to see who’s going to eat. Each day only one employee is allowed to leave the building for lunch. So you have to win that game in order to leave the building.
