MAD magazine's Al Jaffee retires at 99

Al Jaffee, officially the longest-working comic artist ever, has decided to retire at age 99. He's been contributing drawings for MAD magazine for the last 65 years.
Jaffee is best known for inventing the MAD Fold-In which always appeared on the inside of the back cover.
A few years back it was announced Al agreed to donate his work to the University of Columbia where it will be stored safely for future generations. Jaffee recently told the Washington Post that he was happy with his lot. “I’m living the life I wanted all along, which was to make people think and laugh.”
