This story was first published in MAD comicbook in the mid 1950s.  It is a lampoon on the movie THE CAINE MUTINY.  It is about a Captain of a Navy vessel going bonkers - and how his subordinate officers took over  his command to continue operations.  It is also about the trial afterwards.  It is also about a swabby kissing his girl on the dock before the ship lifted it achor's (you have to have at least some romance to sell tickets).  The  story was written by editor Harvey Kurtzman and illusltrated by the legendary comic book artist Wallice Wood.

My future boss at my Postal job was a Mr. Cain, and some thought he was MAD with a cruel streak.  He died recently.

Hey!  I was in the Navy too!
