A friend used to read an american monthly magazine that was aimed at mercenries or soldiers of fortune. Used to offer all the latest gear as well.

Well that's just typical Yank! the strangest magazine that I have read is this one P.C.Advisor I'm amazed at the technical errors in tutorials (if you can call them that) and when you point out errors there is no reply.
I'm taking bets that this will be deleted!!

Enlighten us with an example.

Sorry to disapoint you but i'm not a yank!
Born within earshot of bow bells which makes me a Londoner, me thinks.

As for strangest magazines, the thread was started to see what other forum users have seen or read. As a fan of Have I Got News For You, they often have a guest publication, some of which users here may have read.

I watch "Have I got news for you" but I believe their "guest publication" is made up?

I can make a spoof "guest publication" using Microsoft Publisher any time I like.

Remember a mag called "Mad" that was quite strange as i recall.

It was an A3 sheet, folded to A5, and either shadow printed (which was easy to read and more often done by Oz) or printed onto a photo or number of photos (which was almost impossible to read).

Most of those that worked on it did so for virtually nothing but just sufficient to live off and complementary tickets to everything!

is not made up the reason i know is that popular pig breeder is still going strong, new copy in front of me as i type!

"Egyptian AFO's" many years ago when I was a lad. ..Bingalau..

yep, Mad magazine, remember it well, with Alfred E.Neuman and the axlotl. Was the forerunner of "Private Eye" if I remember correctly.

johndere; I used to be a fan of "Have I got news for you" untill I found out that it took 8-9 hours to film each episode, so much for spontaneous wit ! Went right off the program knowing that it was all rehearsed.

pj123; Inclined to agree that some of the mags are made up, they are certainly not stocked in Smiths!
