“Guung juuk nay fook sow yuen teen tsai, hing hong nay sun sun fie lok. Leen leen doe yao gum yut, suuy doe yao gum jzew, guung hay nay! Guung hay nay!!!”

Approximate English Translation of Above:

“Congrats on this good day of fortune, where we can all gather together. Wishing you a very happy birthday. Every year, this wondrous day arrives; Always, this wondrous time comes. Congratulations! Congratulations!”
Hope you all have a good birthday, and a great year to come! :slight_smile:

[Bomb Bay Doors’ Mommy]

Thanks! Aaron had a great birthday yesterday.

My baby is growing up! snif


Blimey - how did you know it was mine?

Count me in as August 12 please :slight_smile:

Daaaamn … nine of us on the same day??

Thanks for the wishes!

Correction: I’m August 2nd. Posted after midnight, y’see…but in retrospect, that’s not so great for a board that spreads over many many timezones. :smack: D’oh.

Happy birthday to all of yous folks.

My birthday is the 23rd, not the 21st.

And this Wednesday, the 4th, would have been my wife’s 70th birthday.

<AHEM> Clearing throat <AHEM>



you guys remembered!

As a gesture of appreciation, I’ll try to find something funny to say soon.

From my own experience, and judging from that list, it is more than obvious that the smartest people are born in August… Elvis notwithstanding. :smiley:

Happy Birthday to my fellow August-born dopers!

From your post in the thread started with the same name this time last year! :wally :stuck_out_tongue:

Ah. Sorry - they say when you hit 24 the mind starts to go :frowning:

How are your 50th birthday preparations going by the way? And why haven’t i had an invite yet?!

:eek: Then I’m in for it then, old man!

Hey! I haven’t even reached 50/2 yet! And besides, I’m younger than you. :stuck_out_tongue:

Not by much, but younger none the less.

true, you are. And you still don’t look a day over 21.

And you still get carded in pubs. :wink:

BTW, the extent of my birthday celebratory plans involve two words: ‘pub’ and ‘beer’.

Actually its been ages since i’ve been carded in a pub, despite the fact that i look about 12.

i think the Nicholas Cage hairline normally tips them off that i’m legal. :eek:


Incidentally, if you’re not hungover after your birthday celebrations, and fancy braving Branson’s trains, you’re more than welcome to join in my day of drunken debauchery.

Good lord there are alot of us, aren’t there? Happy Birthday, everyone! I am August 1st, so mine’s over with. I’m 29 this year. Next year will be bad for me - 30 is going to be my scary year.
Feliz Cumpleanos, everyone!

I will be 40 on August 29. Same B-day as Michael Jackson :eek:
