Dick DeBartolo (pronounced "Differently than you would expect") was born in Brooklyn. People in Brooklyn will deny that.. He had no life at until 1962 when he began writing for MAD Magazine with an article
in MAD #69. Despite their best efforts (including moving the Mad offices while Dick was out to lunch), Dick is still contributing to MAD to this day.
Besides writing for MAD, Dick also created over 35,000 questions for the classic TV game show The Match Game.
If you're not careful, you may catch sight of Dick on your TV or computer screen. Disk is a technology corespondent for ABC's World News Now and is also the co-host
of the astronomically popular Weekly Daily GizWiz podcast along with some other guy (Oh, okay, his name is Leo Laporte) on the TWiT network.
Having been told to take a long walk on a short pier so often, Dick decided heshould get a boat. One boat lead to another until, at one point, he was
described as an "Admiral of a small Navy"*. His love of watercraft extends to yet another facet of his career. He's written about marine gadgets for 42 years for PowerBoat Magazine.
Whatever you do, don't ask Dick about the model trains that he has running through his garden...
As you have probably guessed, his train doesn't necessarily reach all of its stops any more
