Happy Birthday Quack!

If Quack is on the loose, then this PSA is timely:

I have been watching "In the Night Garden" with my (very nearly) one year old. Leicester won the rugby at the weekend and I have been drinking for six. My brain is consequently mush. I was going to think up some witty, aposite piece of erudite humour to amuse you on your birthday. Well, that or a knob gag. Sadly, I can't, so:

Happy Birthday, time for a classic:

Okay everybody, I'm gonna tell you about some birthday parties I've been to

And when I get to the "Happy Birthday" part, well,
I want you to say "Happy Birthday" the same way the animals said it at the party!

Here we go!

A cat had a birthday and all the cats came
To eat cat cake and play a cat game
To open cat presents and when they were through
They said "Happy Birthday" the way cats do

And they said, "Meow, meow, meow"
Everybody do it now, "Meow, meow, meow"
Really nothing to it, "Meow, meow, meow"
Well image that, you've just said "Happy Birthday" in cat
That's what you did!

A duck had a birthday and all the ducks came
To eat duck cake and play a duck game
To open duck presents and when they were through
They said "Happy Birthday" the way that ducks do

And they said, "Quack, quack, quack"
Everybody do it now, "Quack, quack, quack"
Really nothing to it, "Quack, quack, quack"
Well the ducks are in luck, you've just said "Happy Birthday" in duck

Now when a rooster wants to say "Happy Birthday" to you
He says, "Cock-a-doodle, cock-a-doodle-do"
Now listen real close and I'll tell you more
"Happy Birthday" to a lion is a great big "ROAR", nice

A cow had a birthday and all the cows came
To eat cow cake and play a cow game
To open cow presents and when they were through
They said "Happy Birthday" the way cows do

And they said, "Moo, moo, moo"
Everybody do it now, "Moo, moo, moo"
Really nothing to it, "Moo, moo, moo"
Well you just learned how to say "Happy Birthday" in cow

Where's the cats? (meow, meow, meow)
Let's hear the ducks! (quack, quack, quack)
Do it rooster! (cock-a-doodle-do)
What's up lion? (ROAR)
Word cows! (moo, moo, moo)

You were really great, I'm proud of ya, "Happy Birthday"!

Interpretation: they won 6 months ago, and he's been drinking since then. He'll stop when they next win.

Many thanks to all of you!
I've been waiting all day, will they remember me? Well, I've been hoping it was only the time difference and there you are, while it now is time for me to put myself to bed. I've got some beans to spill, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.

The festivities were dealt with Saturday evening so I am reasonably clear now, just had to taste some of the chateau bottled cognac I got. Yummy-yum.

How swell of you!

Now, the beans I promised to spill. I have a feeling I will be less active from now on but I suppose the lurking will continue. For the rest, there isn't much I can contribute to the war effort.

Sadly, creationism isn't much of an issue here. I'd have enjoyed a local debate.

I decided a while ago that when I passed fourscore, I would make my other identities known.

At talk.origins and at Pandas Thumb, I am using my real name, Rolf Aalberg.

At UcD, I am Cabal.
At TT, (very seldom) I am Satolep.

I guess that was all, thought there would have been more.

FTK: I Didn't answer your questions because it beats the hell out of me.

PaV: I suppose for me to be pried away from what I do to focus long and hard on that particular problem would take, quite honestly, hundreds of thousands of dollars to begin to pique my interest.
