Pyuredeadbrilliant

At 0019h on 31st May,2009, the CoffinDodger turns sixty and invites his fellow Geeks to join him in a celebration of all that is good in life in general and BGG in particular.

Now, my friends across the Pond have a wonderful tradition called a roast so, if you wish to add an entry to this list, I will consider it a "Birthday Card" especially if you wish to vent your spleen about Old Fogies, Antediluvian Scotsmen, CoffinDodgers and that ilk.

To paraphrase the film Bulletproof Monk, "The year of the Ox has passed five times" and I am enjoying every minute of life. The Japanese say that a sixtieth birthday is a new beginning; I like that idea and intend to hang around on the Geek like a bad smell for many more years.

I am now officially a Sexygenarian.


Jim
Est. 31May1949

I'm reminded of a joke I once heard, about two female tourists walking a country road in Scotland. They spied an old Scotsman, lying drunk and unconscious under a tree.

"Do you suppose they wear anything under their kilts?" asked one.

"I've always wondered", answered her friend.

"Here's our chance to find out", said the first, and so they had a peek.

"I feel naughty - let's leave him something to wonder about", said one of the women, and, laughing, she pulled a blue ribbon from her hair, and tied it in a bow where the Scotsman would be certain to find it. They then continued their journey.

When the old Scot awoke, he felt the need to relieve himself, and discovered the blue ribbon. "Well, Laddie", he said, "I dinna know where ye've been, nor what ye've been doin', but I'm happy to see ye've taken first prize!"

Happy birthday to the best thing in Scotland! Maybe second best thing, haggis is pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

Wait, there's scotch, too. Third best thing!

Ooh, and Edinburgh castle. Fourth! A happy birthday to the fourth best thing in Scotland!

And bagpipes! And kilts! And cabers! The Loch Ness Monster! Er, sorry I lost track. But you're definitely in the top ten. Top fifteen for sure.

Happy Birthday Jim!

Your comments are always Pyuredeadbrilliant and you are one of those Geeks that make BGG the best site on the internet.

It's always a pleasure to see your additions in the forums, geeklists and numerous other places here at the geek and you always have a kind thing to say to others. BGG would not be the same without you!

I know you enjoy Chess as you have it rated an "8", and as you get older, here's hoping you get to play more games like THIS.

Warning: Some people may be offended by the depiction of the old man (maybe around Jim's age) playing Chess with the nude woman in the linked photo. But seriously, the guy doesn't look that old to me.

Congratulations Again!

A Guy walks into a bar with an octopus. He sits the octopus on a stool and announces that this is a very talented octopus, which can play any musical instrument in the world.

Everyone laughs at the man, calling him an idiot. So he says that he'll wager £50 to anyone who has an instrument that the octopus can’t play.

A guy walks up with a guitar and puts it beside the octopus.

Immediately the octopus picks up the guitar and starts playing better than Eric Clapton. The guitar man pays up his £50.

Another guy comes up with a trumpet. This time the octopus plays like Miles Davis.

This guy pays his £50.

Then a Scotsman hands over a set of bagpipes. The octopus fumbles with it for a minute and then sits down with a confused look.

"Ha," the Scot says. "Can ye no play it?" The Octopus looks at him and says: "Play it? I’m going to make love to it as soon as I figure out how to get these pyjamas off..."

Happy Birthday!

Let's all get a little comfy at the BGG Ultralounge, where the music is smooth and so are the drinks.

We're here to today to honor one great Geek on his 60th birthday, oneilljgf. How 'bout a round of applause for our birthday boy?

Sixty? At his age, Jim takes Viagra, not for the action, but to keep from rolling out of bed. When Jim started wargaming, Hienz Guderian wasn't even a condiment. But we kid, we kid.

I heard tell that Jim's wife took him to the doctor for an exam. The doc asked Jim if he had any trouble with bathroom issues at night.

"Oh, no!" said Jim, "in fact, when I get up in the middle of the night and open the door to do my business, God turns on the light for me. And, when I'm done, God turns it off!"

The doc finishes up and goes to see Mrs. Jim.

The Doc says, "He's healthy as a horse, but he has this cute delusion that God is looking after him when he gets up at night."

"That's all nice," says the lovely lady, "But can you give him something that will keep him from peeing in our fridge?"

Badoom Ba! I'll be here all night, ladies and germs.

We kid, but we love that Old Scotsman, Old? Well, at Jim's age he should stop buying green bananas.

Really we all love Jim, and here's a song for him on this occasion. Hey, watch it with the candles on that cake, I think they can see that from space! Just kidding, Jim....

"Happy Birthday to Jim
We all just love him
His posts are PYUREDEADBRILLIANT
And sharp as a pin

He's Boardgame Geek's Geek
Whose wisdom we seek
But as his age life insurance
Matures in a week

So Jim's turned sixty,
He's a Scotsman you see
The reason he's always here
Is posting is free!"

And now, a little number I came up with, a Salsa version of Frank Sinatra's "My Way". And a one, and a twoo.....

Good on ya Jim. I had the pleasure to live in Glasgow some years back, though I don't think I got to visit Steelopolis. I, like many others here have enjoyed your instantaneous wit. Keep it up (and the humour too!)

And he who's balding in both places just thinks he's a lover!:

As one who recently celebrated birthday number 58, there was one young buck on BGG who said I must be "devilishly old". So what does that make you? Even older than the devil devil himself, I guess.

I'm glad to see there are still quite a few of us old geezers lurking around. I was playing Magic Realm when it was first released.

Oh, BTW, I love your country -- been to Aberdeen, Glasgow, Balmoral and Edinborough.

Have many more happy birthdays, and wish me one on my 60th in slightly less than two years.

I enjoy your wit and your badge always makes me smirk! I hope I have that attitude about life when I reach your age. Hmm...better write that idea down somewhere since I have a looooong way to go to catch up to you! Or do I?

Believe it or not, you have been most useful to me outside of BGG. When I try to explain my hobby to non-gamers, I use your badge to break the ice.
Without exception, when I mention your CoffinDodger badge, people at least smile wide or crack up a bit. Makes the next step, explaining what I do with my free time so much easier.

Happy Birthday, Jim!

I always enjoy your commentary on BGG, and only wish that I could be as clever.

I chose Memoir, since it's one of the many games that we both enjoy. I hope that when I'm 60 (21 years away) that I'll still playing it with my son.

Best wishes and I hope that you had a great day!

BTW, since you like haggis, you should try some Pennsylvania Dutch haagmal (pig's stomach). In my family, that's what we have for Thanksgiving.
