Right click, fold, laugh, then forward to someone via a mispelled text message

The New York Times recently threw some love in the direction of MAD magazine artist Al Jaffee, a revered figure here at Blogfoot headquarters. In addition to the regular feature "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions", Mr Jaffee has been the driving force of the famous "Mad Fold-In" for the last 40 years or so.

In addition to a nice lengthy article, the Times posted a gallery of fold-ins on their site that can be folded "interactively." This is because studies have shown that young people don't like actually folding with their hands anymore, but are inclined to do so electronically in between watching bit-torrented episodes of "Lost" on their phones.
