Happy Birthday Mike!

I'm sitting here in my Chicago hotel room, goofing off for the weekend, while on my way to New York for the week. I had decided it was a good time to catch up on my email, blog reading, My Spacing, Facebooking, etc. Facebook reminded me that it's my buddy Mike's birthday. I went to his page and posted "Happy Birthday!". I saw an update later and I found this post by our mutual friend Kender. It made me laugh so hard, I thought it important to share it with you all.

Here's the message he posted
"I was going to send you birthday wishes but in this time of political correctness and sensitivity I am uncertain if wishes may be against your religion and I wouldn't want to offend you in any way shape or form so until such time as the right to offend is codified into law, as opposed to the right to not be offended which is all BUT codified into law I want you to know that IF you are not offended by well wishes upon the day you mark your birth into this world that they are indeed sent your way by me. If however these wishes offend you they were not only NOT sent but they do not and have never existed in any way shape or form."

Too much and I love it... Kender, thanks again for the chuckle and Happy Birthday Mike! (By the way Mike, you are still very much a youngster, but one of the more learned youngsters I know.)

Please check them out and follow them if you like what you see. Both of these guys have their own blog sites here:
