Here's the official note from the guys at MAD:
On March 13, long-time MAD writer/artist, creator of the Fold-In and Snappy Answers, and accused (but never convicted!) shoplifter Al Jaffee is going to be 90 freakin' years old! To celebrate, we're asking all his fans (and enemies) to send in letters, cards, poems, drawings, paintings, sculptures, operettas, WHATEVER - so we can pass the love straight to Al!The sky's the limit! You can send your birthday wishes to:
The Big Jaffee c/o MAD Magazine 1700 Broadway NY, NY 10019
The deadline is March 1st - so get crackin'!"
I'm sending a little something his way - why don't you?
