Here’s a cool opportunity to make someone who probably brought you at least a smile or two over the years very happy. Al Jaffee, award-winning cartoonist, inventor of Mad Magazine’s beloved fold-in page as well as Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions, turns 100 on March 13th. Sam Vivano, former MAD Art Director and friend of Al’s is putting together a surprise to help Al celebrate…
…(T)he legendary Al Jaffee will celebrate his 100th birthday on March 13. You are invited to send him greetings at the post office box shown in the graphic (above).
Please be sure to put your full name and address on the envelope. This will help me keep track of everything that comes in.
The box is active for the next six months, so don’t worry if you think your greeting won’t arrive by the 13th. I’m sure Al will be happy to continue celebrating his birthday even after it’s passed!
Although the project will run even after Al’s birthday, it would be cool to have Al’s party flooded with messages from fans around the world on his birthday. Please consider sending in a card.
