I’ve been looking for pants just like that all week!

Thanks, Guy.

Shame on you, Guy Benson. One day – with a great deal of luck, you too will turn 50.

Happy Birthday Ed. I’m about 18 months away from that milestone myself.

You seriously can’t be 50. Happy birthday, Capt’n.

Hell, I thought you were older, especially after that column about 70s attire. LOL

Best wishes for a great birthday, Ed!

Happy Birthday, Oh Geriatric Bard.

Haha, I posted that video on my 50th. Hope yours was a happy day and here’s to 50 more. Happy Birthday Ed.

All I got for my 50th birthday was an all expenses paid trip to the Vatican for the Papal Conclave…

Well played, Mauer…

Happy Birthday! :)

My sincere wish is that you see
One-twenty, healthy each day,
That you keep computer dancing,
And never know its gay;
That your friends wax in quality,
And peace surrounds your home,
That the hair climbing out your ears
Climbs back atop your dome!

Happy Birthday, Captain…

Welcome to the fifties, Ed. It’s all good. I went into a DQ (the restaurant formerly known as Dairy Queen) a couple of weeks ago, to buy dinner. I got my first senior discount there – the waitress looked at me and said, “senior discount”, and knocked ten percent off of my bill.

Ward Cleaver on April 3, 2013 at 11:39 PM

Can we all go out for beers on Guy’s 21st birthday??
/kidding, Guy, love your stuff :)

Happy birthday, Ed.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday #50 :)

I read in a Birthday card that said, Don’t just think of the number 50. Think of it as five perfect 10’s.

10.0 10.0 10.0 10.0 10.0 !!

Happy Belated Birthday, Ed. Welcome to the fifties. They aren’t so bad once you get over the shock of it all.

Fallon on April 4, 2013 at 9:01 AM

From one recently-turned-50 guy to another, Happy Birthday.

Kingfisher on April 4, 2013 at 9:17 AM

Happy Birthday, Ed!

Good Lt on April 4, 2013 at 9:19 AM

Happy Birthday, Ed, and may God bless you today and always.

Happy Birthday Ed!!!

I think we can safely assume everyone else on Hot Air hates Guy Benson. :)

I kid. I kid because I love. Or I like a little. I kid because I like a little.

Seriously though — Guy Benson must be stopped.
