    Happy, happy birthday! By rights, you get a slice of cake with an entire rose on it.

    Happy birthday, PZ! I’ll celebrate your existence and your having continued to BE for another year because I’m selfish. You make my life better. Usually, you even do that on a daily basis.

    FFRF gave you a shout out on their Freethought of the Day, too. Happy Birthday.

    Your birthday horoscope, PZ:

    Happy birthday! Matters of the heart may feel serious and urgent this year. Consult your head, and sometimes put yourself in the other person’s place for perspective and a sense of balance. In April you may be tempted to do or say something impulsive and a bit wild. Keep control of your emotions and spend more time with pleasant, agreeable people. Be ambitious and accomplished for several undisturbed months. Passion flares in August. Relax and be good to yourself. Be more easygoing and enjoy a summer-long party atmosphere. October could be tense and passionate. Relax more with friends in the closing months of an emotionally exciting year!

    The Pullet Patrol™ is in the midst of making a fireworks for the trebuchet that will look like a squid with a beard when it goes off. They are having trouble with the beard. Enjoy another orbit of the sun.

    Many happy returns, PZ! Thank you for saying and writing so many good things (so many, in fact, that they have inveigled the Horde to coalesce around them and, well, become the Horde). (All of which makes my birthday all the more enjoyable :-) Yup, I’m well made up (= chuffed = dead pleased) to share a birthday with you!)

    Cheers ::drinks to PZ and all his works::

    You should try to arrange the one day a year you blush to coincide with the day after you molt. It’s easier to explain away the redness.

    Happy birthday, PZ! Sorry to be late. We’re traveling in Europe and internet availability can be spotty at times.

    I went back to reread your parting piece about Mr. Dawkins. Now that you’ve milked you’re fake outrage for all those extra clicks on your site, why haven’t you retired on all the zillions of dollars you made writing that post?
