Birthday Boy

Today is my birthday, and I'm turning the perfect age. I've kinda been looking forward to being thirty three, because it's one of my favorite numbers. I like multiples of 11 and my favorite number is 3, so this should be my luckiest year ever.

But apparently, in the early fifth century St. Augustine of Hippo surmised that since Jesus Christ died on the cross at age 33, then ALL humans, upon ascending into heaven at the time of the second coming, will be 33 years of age. For eternity.

Sounds nice and all, but that this means I'll be floating around heaven with an inner-tube of excess fat bouncing around my lower gut, brittle toe nails, and hair in weird places. Frankly, I was hoping for more out of heaven. And out of being 33.

Happy birthday, Dan! You deserve a very happy birthday for making so many strangers laugh out loud every day. And quit it with the fat talk - you're adorable, so chew on that. :)

Can I have my 33 year old mind and my 22 year old body? Because that would be heaven to me.

Happy Birthday, Dan. Keep looking up.

If only I was as "fat" as I was when I was 33. Takes twice as much work to stay half as fit now (ain't worth all that). Keep doing what you are doing, Dan. You rock. Happy B-Day!

Like Seth a few posts back said,

Magic 33!

Happy Birthday! Celebrate the fact that you don't own a dog that looks like that!

Oh yeah, look for the Rolling Rock Logo/horse to appear on the full moon tonight, coincidentally (Like that's going to happen)!
That's right folks, our moon has just become a round far-away billboard.

Happy birthday - live it up like your 22!

Hi Dan

Contrary to popular belief the bible does not teach that everyone will be in heaven rather only those who believe on God's Son. Check out the gospel of John chapter three.
Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday from NY. take it from me 44 is worse, so enjoy 33 and as an earlier poster said, you're not "fat" as you always say. To quote Bridget Jones' diary - I like you just as you are!
Happy Birthday Dan, you make me laugh and thats what matters in life.
