    Happy Birthday!

    I’ve umm… volunteered my horse for an acupuncture demo in your honour. I’m determined to not imagine any benefits of the treatment and my honest opinion on the benefits (or lack thereof)

    Does that count as a present?

  2. 2

    That poor animal. Is that its radula protruding from its siphon? That’s gotta hurt.

  3. 3

    How many “f”‘s in present…that’s right there’s no f’in present. Happy birthday

    Happy birthday, PZ!

    Happy Birthday to the best Evil Overlord ever.

    Okay. Maybe not ever. But definitely the best Evil Overlord on Pharyngula. Or at least among the top two.

    Many happy returns! Despite your own prediction of your limited lifespan, I hope still to be commenting on your blog when we’re both nonagenarians. Assuming there’s still such a thing as a “blog” of course.

  9. 9

    Happy happy birthday, PZ.

  10. 10

    Happy Daze, prof! Will you allow Stephen Fry’s esteemed colleague “Dr. House” to sing for you this classic song about things you’re liable to read in the bible?

  11. 11

    Your presents have been hidden by the Birthday Octopus. She loves to watch people look high and low for their gifts. Check under your pillow for starters…

    May you have many sinuously coiled returns of the day!

  14. 14

    Happy birthday PZ!

    How about some sea stars? I know they aren’t octopi, but I think they are cute. :)

    I can even get you a pic of a woman to go with the sea stars:

    I know. It’s not the real thing, but I thought you might at least like the pic.

    Look at this way, PZ, we’re one year closer to the invention of immortality technology!
    In the meantime, happy birthday!

    Happy Bithday, PZ.
    I didn’t get you anything but good wishes.

  17. 17

    Happy birthday PZ.

  18. 18

    What? I’ve been reading this for years and I’ve only just realised you share a birthday with me? 9th March? Well Happy birthday us! (With a party hat).

    Here ya go, PZ. I’m sending you a look at a photo my brother took just a couple of weeks ago in Zion National Park.

    “Birthday Card” link.

    This is proof that even though mormons named Zion in honor of their whacko religion, and then proceeded to name every high point, stream etc. after characters and places in their mythology, the scenery doesn’t care. Geology doesn’t care. Seasons don’t care. They fucking refuse to be downgraded by association with a cult.

    The rocks stand with you, PZ.

  20. 20

    So cute! Can´t help but squeal adoringly. Would sigh a “happy birthday, Mister PeeZee” but my microphone is broken.

    Happy Birthday!

  22. 22

    What, you already got cookies from Miri!

  23. 23

    Yesterday was my birthday! However, I have decided to extend the revelry all weekend. W00t! W00t!

    Happy birthday, PZ!

    Happy birthday, I’ll see if I can find a little plastic diver guy for you.

  25. 25

    Happy birthday, PZ! I give you a video with people chasing cephalopods around at night.

  26. 26

    I can even get you a pic of a woman to go with the sea stars

    you haven’t been paying much attention, have you?

    (plus, I’m pretty sure that PZ could figure out how to find pictures of pretty ladies on the internet hisself if he wanted to.)

    Happiest of birthdays, P-Zed!

    Happy Birthday, PZ! It’s my birthday today too, and I’m very happy to share it with you. Also I just ate a seafood birthday treat, which is as close as I’m going to get to anything tentacular today (unless I manage to involve some seafood in supper tonight as well :-D ).

    Here’s wishing you a thoroughly tentacular and most squidly day!

    Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, you share common morphological traits with a monkey, and share an ancestor with one too….

    It’s also Rio the river otter’s birthday! Leaving aside the disappointing fact that she doesn’t have tentacles even though she lives in an aquarium (there’s an octopus around the corner, though), she’s still healthy at an age that her wild compatriots aren’t known to ever reach, is living a happy, healthy life under the care of a dozen trainers and specialists, and is expanding our knowledge of her species and ecosystem every day. While she adorably cavorts with dog toys stuffed with fish heads.

  31. 31

    Decloaking just long enough to wish you a very Happy Birthday, PZ!

  32. 32

    You made another trip around Sol? Congrats!

  33. 33

    Happy Birthday, PZ. I’m sending you the useful parts of the bible. It is the least I can do.

  34. 34

    As we say, in Spanglish, Apio verde, PZ!

    (After all, you’re vegetarian now, aren’t you?)

  35. 35

    Happy Birthday, PZ.

    Happy birthday, PZ, and I hope you and Mary (and however many of the spawn are around) enjoy it.

    If you are not happy about your gifts, Rat from the comic strip “Pearls Before Swine” has many suggestions for what to do. He keeps trying to publish those suggestions in the form of children’s tales, but due to the extreme violence he has had no luck so far.

    Congratulations and a plate of fried calamari.

    Happy Birthday PZ. Love your blog. Enjoy your day.

    The mildly deranged penguin just searched her pockets, and found (besides the usual assortment of dust bunnies, broken pens, spare hand grenades, several copies of The Grauniad from the last several decades, a broken watch, what looks like the remains of a sushi meal she mislaid several years ago, half a drumkit, several Margaritas, and other odds and sods) the rind from some, sadly now unidentifiable, cheese. She’s managed to scrap most of mold off (those hand grenades came in handy) — except for the bit which kept fighting back — and asks it that’s Ok?

    She’ll post it as soon as see can find a sturdy-enough steel barrel it can’t chew its way out of…
