Alex, we had a Goreo in ANS 11.  I must have submitted the idea just before Mark.  Originally my gag was based on Double Stuffed Oreo's and was called Brain Stuffed Goreos.  An interesting bit of trivia about the final painting is that someone at Topps thought it would be funny if the Zombie looked like Al Gore ('Gore'o get it!).  And that how the painting was done.

Not Wacky Packages related, but the November 3, 2014 Off the Mark strip features a Wacky name take on Charlie Brown from Peanuts...

These are the Chinese Yin and Yang symbols. Wikipedia describes it better than I can as follows: "...apparently opposite or contrary forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Many tangible dualities (such as light and dark, fire and water, and male and female) are thought of as physical manifestations of the duality of yin and yang". Here is the image I most often see associated with Yin and Yang...

Mark's comic panels have been showing up in my Facebook newsfeed!
My friends and even cousins on Canada are discovering his work and posting them!

Also: I know Mark Parisi is all right despite the Boston/New England area getting a lot of record breaking snow with non stop snowstorms the last few weeks, but that won't stop on his work of possible entries for a planned 2015 Wacky Packages series (tentatively set for Summer 2015).

The Feb. 28, 2015 Mark Parisi Off the Mark strip features a Wacky Package take on a Cabbage Patch Kids doll (But it wouldn't make the 2015 Wacky Packages series CRAZY COLLECTIBLES subset, just like a rejected for the 1985 series Cabbage Patch Kids doll Wacky Packages entry called Garbage Pail Kids did and caused the inspiration for the Topps Garbage Pail Kids sticker series):

That's exactly right. Your Goreo was submitted just before mine for the same series. I thought I had a ringer but I was beaten to the punch.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day 2015, today's March 17, 2015 Mark Parisi Off The Mark strip features what might be the original rough for what would be the Wacky Packages All New Series 11 Lucky Charms spoof called "Licky Charms", but a different design concept or something like that:

I know today's Off the Mark isn't Wacky Package related, but for a THROWBACK THURSDAY is a lost Mark Parisi done Off The Mark strip originally done in 1987 that I think never ran since the Off The Mark strip was launched in January 1987 (originally a weekly, then I think 7 days a week by the early 1990's)! I wonder if there will be more unearthed lost Off The Mark strips in the future (Though not reruns of past Off The Mark strips):



(Now if only Mark can show a rejected 1970's style Wacky Packages Old School rough if he ever does at least one of these!)

Non Wacky Pack related Off The Mark Throwback Thursday 1987 strip on August 27, 2015. This ties into former Let's Make a Deal host Monty Hall who turned 94 recently?



By the way, the current Let's Make a Deal hosted by Wayne Brady airs daily on CBS daytime and has been airing since 2009. And recently a digital subchannel network of classic game shows called BUZZR (I get it where I live on WPWR 50.4 plus on Comcast Digital Cable) now carries reruns of Monty Hall's 1970's Let's Make a Deal almost every day.

Non-Wacky Package related, but today's October 15, 2015 Mark Parisi Off The Mark strip is another Throwback Thursday strip from 1987 that's monster/Halloween related, and also has the "poke your eye out" line that may or may have not been influenced by the "poke your eye out" line in the 1983 holiday movie "A Christmas Story":
