Birthday Backlog

Looks like this guy should stay far away from fireworks show. That should be relatively easy for him, being that he's dead and all.

OK, I know we've been very late with the birthdays this week. There's no real excuse, except for I was distraught over the Patrick Swayze news. I always loved "Too Wong Foo."

Sunday was somebody's Birthday! Whose Birthday? Academy Award Winning Actress Jennifer Jones' Birthday. How Old Is She? 1,2,3,4... 89! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Jennifer Jones' name appears on "Remains to Be Seen's" roster

  • Jones was born as Phylis Lee Isely. She was given the stage name of Jennifer Jones by Hollywood producer David O. Selznick.
Probably a good move. Who was the last Phylis that was attractive enough to appear in movies?

Sunday was somebody else's Birthday! Whose Birthday? Best-Selling Author Tom Wolfe's Birthday. How Old Is He? 1,2,3,4... 78! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Tom Wolfe's name appears on "Extended Weekend at Bernie's'" roster
  • Asked to comment by the Wall Street Journal on blogs in 2007, to mark the tenth anniversary of their advent, Wolfe wrote that "the universe of blogs is a universe of rumors," and that "blogs are an advance guard to the rear."
We here at BDPE take offense to that. Has Mr. Wolfe seen himself reported as dead on the blog? I rest my case.

Sunday was somebody else's else's Birthday! Whose Birthday? President of Algeria Abdelaziz Bouteflika's Birthday. How Old Is He? 1,2,3,4... 71! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Abdelaziz Bouteflika's name appears on "Last Call's" roster
  • In 1981, Bouteflika was sued for having stolen Algerian embassies' money between 1965 and 1979, On August 8, 1983, Bouteflika was convicted by The Court of Financial Auditors and found guilty of having fraudulently taken 60 million dinars during his diplomatic career.
That's the kind of guy you want running your country. One who isn't particularly adept at embezzling money.

... And Many More!
