If you look in the F. A. Q.,, you will see that Stupefying yarns was apparently created by one "Max Korn". A quick google search led to a surprising result- the name "Max Korn" has been a strange running gag in none other than Mad Magazine for years! No writer has ever explained what it means, and they give increasingly bizarre explanations to anyone who asks. Some people have theorized that it is short of "Maximum Korniness", but we seem to have stumbled upon an alternate source for the name. Thoughts?

Oh, it gets worse.

Mad Magazine was created by Bill Gaines, whose father was Max Gaines.

Max Gaines arguably invented the comic book. i.e. originated the multipage newsprint pamphlet format which became the modern comic book. And co-founded All-American Publications which (Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Hawkman), part of the merger that became DC Comics.

It's turtles all the way down, people...
