I remember getting a musical birthday card when I was very young. I was probably around 5 or 6, but even at that young age I was annoyed by it, not delighted. That was in the '80s, and it baffles me that people are still buying these abominations. That's why it brings me so much pleasure to watch this cat completely lose its mind on that singing, meowing birthday greeting.

Alex Brandon, AP Michelle Obama spoke to Jay Leno recently about important matters affecting the country. Namely, Bo's birthday. When asked about Bo's first birthday party, she revealed that the family had a "sweet celebration" in the rose garden. Bo's brother Cappy came over, and they had party hats and even a dog-house cake made out of "veal stuff." There was one snafu, though, when Cappy stole the rest of the cake off the table!
