Diplopundit Turned One This Week

I almost forgot — Diplopundit turned 1 this week (b.March 11). Like the song goes, it’s one year older, 386 posts later life still isn’t over, did not accomplished much, but didn’t die this year either so — I guess that’s a good enough reason to celebrate. Want to sing along with me the Happy Birthday Jamie Diplopundit animated song?

Once a year we celebrate
With stupid hats and plastic plates
The fact that you were able to make
An other trip around the sun

And the whole gang gathers round
With gifts and laughter to abound
And we let out a joyful sound
And sing that stupid song

Happy birthday!
Now you’re one year older
Happy birthday!
Your life still isn’t over
Happy birthday!
You did not accomplished much
But you didn’t die this year
I guess that’s good enough

So let’s drink to your fading health
And hope you don’t remind yourself
The chance of finding fame and wealth
Decrease with every year

Does it feel like you’re doing laps
And eating food and taking naps
And hoping that someday perhaps
Your life will hold some cheer

Happy birthday!
What have you done that matters?
Happy birthday!
You’re starting to get fatter
Happy birthday!
It’s downhill from now on
Try not to remind yourself
Your best years are all gone

If cryogenics were all free
Then you could live like Walt Disney
And live for all eternity
Inside a block of ice

But instead your time is set
This is the only life you get
And though it hasn’t ended yet
Sometimes you wish it might

Happy birthday!
You wish you had more money
Happy birthday!
Your life’s so sad it’s funny
Happy birthday!
How much more can you take?
But your friends are hungry
So just cut the stupid cake

Happy birthday!
Happy birthday!
Happy birthday, dear…
