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

Thanks, Guy.

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

thebrokenrattle on April 3, 2013 at 7:38 PM

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.

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

Well played, Mauer…


Khun Joe on April 3, 2013 at 10:49 PM

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.

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.

“The jobs are still leaving. Nothing has stopped.”

Bad vendor. Bad! No cookie!

“So you want me to sing my praises, is that what you’re saying?”

Why would we possibly want that?
