"If you smile and no one else is around, you really mean it."

Andy Rooney, the loveable and sometimes cantankerous curmudgeon of 60 Minutes fame, will announce on Sunday that he is hanging up his popular weekly segment.

The iconic CBS celeb's last appearance will include an interview with Morley Safer, featuring a look back at his illustrious career.  He'll end with his 1097th original essay--which is sure to be well received by the faithful followers who have hung on his every utterance since 1978.

Check out Andy's thought provoking video essay on the U.S. Postal Service below:
