Happy {!#%@} Birthday! Good for you, you made it. What era were you born. Father pacing, and smoking in the waiting room era, or the Lemaze era? Breast milk bad and circumcision good era? Or Doctor still came to the house era?

My father didn't smoke, I was raised on formula, and my doctor was Jewish. ;)

If I fly over to Canada for your birthday party
1) What cake will you mother give us in our "treat bag" when my mother comes to pick me up and take me home?
2) Are you a "pin the tail on the donkey" kind of man or a "pass the parcel"?
3) Will we all go to a fun park like "Canada World" or a "Poutie Restaurant"?
4) Can my girlfriend/playmate ( the nice sort of "playmate") come as well?

1) It's a banana cake with a cookie base and white creamy icing with chocolate flakes on the sides -- in fact, it's this: http://www.jeannesbakery.com/
2) Definitely the tail pinning donkey.
3) The water slides are closed for the season what with all the snow and ice, but we can get some poutine just about anywhere these days.
4) ...yes.

Happy Birthday, Gord!!!!!!!!!!

I watched a lot of crappy "Happy Birthday" videos on youtube looking for something fresh, and the closest I got was "Happy Birthday (to an aborted fetus)", so I decided, "ya can't go wrong with the classics" so here's a song:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjF1bG5LUcs

and a banner :bw:

and a puppy :doggy:

and a disco ball :disco:

and a six pack :gb:

Yay you! :hb:

And you're an apologist for someone who says it's his birthday and has yet to provide proof. Do we just take him at his word? You feel free to do just that, however, I require a little pesky thing called evidence before I speak.

Alright. Gord, scan your long form Birth Certificate, bank account number, and whatever passes for a Social Security number in your country.

You gotta listen to this one, From. If that crack in her voice in the first "ba-by" doesn't give you a tingle, you ain't human!

I know Tom and Hghr will like this, too; and Gord, I don't know if you like old-time American .... I think it falls into the early Rockabilly subgroup of country music ... but this is an excellent example of the genre. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoGKt33lbCg&feature Enjoy!

Edit: Nah, it's not rockabilly ... ... although I've never heard the term, it's more like "country doowop".

Oh. County. My bad.

But still, it's a legal document that hasn't been completed in full. Therefore, you were never born. Please fully complete the required documentation providing satisfactory proof of existence and re-join the end of the queue, non-person.

Next!

Thanks, From. Second-guessed myself right out of that one! :oops: :)

I didn't know the name before following links from your post, but she's excellent. Found other songs of hers I enjoyed, too.
