When In Rome…

In Roman times, birthdays were celebrated by ritualistic bathing and anointing with spices and scented oils. The birthday celebrant would be wrapped in a garland of holly and oleander and paraded around the town square naked on the back of a beast of burden.

Call me old-fashioned but I’d prefer to just sing “Happy Birthday” than to see my Uncle Mitch in his birthday suit on an ass.
