Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Drippy Haybath!

“You say it’s your birthday? It’s my birthday, too!”

Happy Birthday to me! When I was two years old, I sat in front of the television as man took his first steps on the moon. I’ll leave the math to you.

When I was in college, our friend Martin took a “Happy Birthday” banner made of colorful cardboard letters, and rearranged it to read “Drippy Haybath”. Ever since then, it has been the tradition of my college friends to wish each other a Drippy Haybath. This is the kind of undying tradition that can only be born of beer and boredom. Well, except that Martin was a teetotaler. So he didn’t have any beer.

The WordPress crew wishes me a happy birthday

    Happy Birthday dude!
    My niece recently had a 13th ‘HIPPY BRAT DAY’, after she rearranged the candles on her cake. (I don’t know what she did with the other ‘H’)
    Enjoy your day.

    This is S-P-O-O-K-Y …. what are the odds of coming across someone who not only shares your (relatively uncommon) name but your birthday too.
