For today Oli Young is The Word!


Huge Happy Birthday going out to Commander Keen himself @Oliyoung who as of 10 minutes ago South Aussie time turned 30! I've never met him and have only conversed through The Twitters so therefore I can't entirely be sure he exists as per the Schrödinger's Turing Machine Cat Box thing, but if he does I'm sure he's even more awesome in person :). Suffice to say I hope I have as many amazing things to add to my 20s list when I turn 30!

In recognition of this event, I declare The Word to be Oli Young for the duration of today and not Bird. Yes the irony hasn't escaped me that I replaced The Word with Two Words, but if that really bothers you I suppose you could hyphenate it. Hyphen sounds like something Professor Frink would say. Operation Hyphen Maven!

A-well-a, everybody’s heard about Oli Young!
Oli Young, Oli Young, Oli Young, Oli Young‘s the word!
Papa ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow!

I think I've had too much egg nog. Happy birthday anyway mate :)
