Duke is Dead
No, not really - far from it. However, Mad Magazine has declared Duke dead in a headline that looks like it came straight from the Onion. It starts off like this:
"Duke Nukem, 28, died of an apparent heart seizure after being informed he would have to wait for a 24 hour period before being permitted to buy 275 grenade launchers."
We here at 3D Realms thought this was totally hysterical - kudos to Mad Magazine, who keeps on doin it after all these years. Click on the thumbnail here to see the entire "Nukem Dead" piece from Mad Magazine.
