Things You Can Do Faster Than "Happy Birthday" Can be Sung

So this past Friday was my birthday (hoot hoot) and in the midst of being sung to by a crowd of people, I realized that the “Happy Birthday” song is way too long. Are you supposed to clap along? Dance to the music? Perform a magic trick? For what seems like an eternity, people are staring at you, singing a song and all you can do is just sit there and smile.

Here's a list of things you can do faster than “Happy Birthday” can be sung:

- Discover you're a wizard, go on a quest, defeat a dragon, and save the world

- Bake a chicken for every citizen in America

- Find the Lochness Monster and take a selfie with her

- Walk around the diameter of Earth

- Create a time machine and travel back in time to ride a dinosaur

- Start a lemonade stand and generate enough revenue to cure cancer; fifty cents at a time

- Travel to Pluto and start an entirely new civilization there

- Succeed in world domination (“Chicken and books for everyone!”)

Anyone else born in April?

    Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday your lordship Viviane, owner of 76% of the earth. I think it has a certain ring to it. But in all seriousness, happy belated birthday.

  3. EXACTLY. People might as well forget the song and get to the cake cutting!


Thanks for living in the fast lane and commenting, you cool kid you!
