    Mad Magazine Name Game

    Okay, one of the things Mad Magazine has always been famous for is parodies of hit TV shows.

    A hallmark of these parodies is that they pretty much always take character names and er... humorize them. They aren't just nicknames, like people referring to Claude the Invisible Man on "Heroes" as "Doctor Where", because the guy playing him also played Doctor Who. Instead they change the character name itself. So "Claude", might for example, be "Clod". Or, from Star Trek, "Captain Kirk" might wind up as "Captain Jerk".

    The point of this thread is simple. Person 1 gives a popular TV show character (or if its a reality show, a personality on the show). Person 2 gives a Mad Magazine parody version of the name, and also a new character for the next person to Mad Magazinize.

    I'll seed the first entry

    24's "Jack Bauer"

    Ok. I don't get MAD but I'll try. Would either of these be acceptable?

    12's Jill Bauer
    48's Jack Butter ???

    The Apprentice's "Donald Trump"

    The Apprentice's "Donald Trump" -- The obvious Mad Magazine parody name would be "Donald Chump". If we want to go a step further, the name of the show would obviously be "The Apprenta$$!" Probably including those dollar signs for the letters "S".

    Let's try a related topic. Mad Magazinize the names of the entire cast of "The View"...

    ?

    Yes. After which, normally, you should pick a challenge for the next person.

    Heh. My expectation was that someone was likely to use the name "Rosie O'Donut", but you came up with something more original. An an aside we should note that the above show would probably be called "Nosey's View".

    Why don't we just move on... how about the next person works with:

    Jeopardy's Alex Trebek and Ken Jennings
