Al Jaffee, Mad's 95 Year Old Cartoonist



Al Jaffee invented "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions" for Mad Magazine



He also came up with the popular "Fold-In" feature. He's is 95 years old and still going strong. In fact he was recently honored as having the longest working career of any cartoonist ever. Here's a video profile from the Gothamist. (Link to YouTube video)

He's led an interesting life... his autobiography is worth checking out.
