When I was a kid I got a memorable Hallmark birthday card. For some reason I found it quite amusing...

Sung to the tune of Happy Birthday:

Hippo, birdie, two ewes,
Hippo, birdie, two ewes,
Hippo, birdie, deer ewe,
Hippo, birdie, two ewes.

The accompanying illustrations were what made it funny.

Now, I just did a search for this via Google, and while the illustrations are different, it's the same concept:

Birthday Greeting Dance

I hope this didn't ruin your birthday... :biggrin2:

:birthday:

A very happy birthday to you WK!

Hope you have a few ales later, I'll inscribe 'WK' into a pint of Guiness in your honour later.

Clem is your avatar an ancient Norse bone carving? Reindeer antler, 8th-9th century? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

What's your Avatar all about Phil?

It's an octopus enjoying a meaningful relationship with Jacques Derrida.

No!

It's Comical Ali, the former Iraqi Information Minister! Long may he live.

I totally remember getting that same card for my birthday. That's one coincidence. The other is that today is my birthday as well. I guess that makes WK and I related or something.

well there are several others with the date....henry vii, jean jacques rousseau, mel brooks, john elway...id like to think i have a little something in common with them all and maybe i do, a fat former football player that thinks to much and doesnt worry about being politically correct :smile: (henry, elway, rousseau, brooks respectively).....but thats just ego

or the staropramen talking :smile:

:cthulhu: :heart: :beer:

of course i unintentionally left out pat morita....

and figured itd be morbid to bring up franz ferdinand....
