This was published in 1963 and the joke has not aged well.
After repeated attempts to act uninterested, the secretary finally agrees to go on the date.
Once the boss goes back into the office and slams the door shut, the secretary shouts with joy exclaiming, "YAHOO! Yahoo's logo today and the one they originally used in 1996 is virtually identical minus a drop shadow and some pixels.
It's an impressive feat that the logo has remained consistent and lasted for this long.
Either way, it's more insight into the company that's doing everything they can to stay above water. Updated: One commenter who knows about 10x more about Mad Magazine than I do gave a great explanation about how the early publishing of the product worked.
Update #2: Another commenter found a link to the iterations of the Yahoo logo over time since 1995.
In 2009 Derek founded Vaporware Labs, incubating many products including Startup Grind and professional social network Commonred, which was acquired by in 2012. Pictured below is also the scan of the front and back cover of this edition.Ultimately I'm not sure what's stranger, the fact that they copied their design from a 1960's Mad Magazine for the logo that still remains today, or that they copied it from a cartoon about a boss pressuring his secretary to go on a date with him.The earliest logo I could find from the Way Back Machine was from 1996.Either way it doesn't change much as the 1995 logo was almost identical to the Purple logo that I featured above, but it does provide more context.
