Just who does this "matthowie" guy think he is, anyway?! October 10, 2010 5:06 PM   Subscribe

Looking so young at his age. Happy, happy 38th birthday, Matt!

10/10/10. An auspicious age for a birthday, though I suppose it would be even more auspicious if he was turning 42.

Happy birthday, Matt!

You have the same birthday as my boss, which is confusing. So you should just hire me to work at Metafilter.

Someone activate the pb signal, we need dancing balloons and an annoying song on Matt's account. We have the means.

As my kids would say (every bloody year at the top of their lungs):

Happy birthday to you,
You're a hundred and two,
You look like a monkey,
And you smell like one too.

Why wasn't I born infertile?

Have a great day. And many thanks for what you do, and have done, for all of us.

OK, Matt, you were born the same year as my son.... I'm going to officially change the manner in which I deal with you...

Now, clean your room, get your homework done, get your haircut (and, NO mohawk!), and....have a happy birthday!

Remember, life begins at 40, so you still have 2 more years of gestation before you REALLY get out into the Real World. Enjoy them. (And congratulations on making it this far!)

You're younger and more successful than me, and that's why I'm not wishing you a happy birthday. However, I think you'll find being young and successful is its own reward.
