Happy Birthday, Stephen Fry!

Usually, the only birthday of a self-described atheist we honour on here is Muffti’s, but in this case I’ll make an exception.

British actor / author Stephen Fry* is turning 65 55 today. It’s not as if we needed to remind him of that as, to put it in his own words, “I don’t need you to remind me of my age, I have a bladder to do that for me”.

Happy Birthday!
Thank you so much for many, many laughs!

*Yes, his maternal grandparents were Jewish, so shut it.

ed. note: We incorrectly wrote that Stephen Fry turned 65 when in fact he had turned 55. We apologize for any distress we may have caused Mr. Fry (who pointed out our error on twitter) and his legion of fans. When I first read this post I thought, “He looks pretty good for a 65 year old!” but now I’m just thinking that he looks ok. Happy birthday sir!

    Stephen Fry turned 55 yesterday, not 65, for Heaven’s sake! Surely I’m not the first one to tell you that. And you don’t even bother to correct your mistake!

    Stephen Fry is 55 and his mother is Jewish, but on twitter he said thank you (and also corrected you)

    I think when Stephen Fry corrects you on his Twitter, it’s time to correct the age… LOL

    A calculated error or a calculating error? Someone write a mystery novel about it. 🙂

      Uhm froylein? It was a great error. Your post alone attracted 16,009 visits. Amazing.

        Wow, I think we’ve had posts showing images of attractive women wearing provocative underwear that haven’t attracted those numbers.

        Hi. If you could please remove my earlier comment from the pool. I thought this was about Stephen Fry. But it’s about women’s underwear. Not interested, sorry. Thank you.

          This *is* about Stephen Fry and has nothing at all to do with ladies’ knickers.

            So are you saying that my comment, once posted, is written in stone and can’t be removed?

          What like the 10 Commandments? I’d need a pretty compelling reason to delete a comment. I don’t see anything wrong with it though, I am stumped!

          My apologies, Armine. We were just thinking out loud.

            Why are you apologizing?! Armine is offended by an underwear joke?

            If I got Armine right, the issue is the number of e-mail notifications due to a subscription.

            I’m not apologetic about my underwear.

    Hahaha, I love that sassy editor’s note. However, I am saddened to find that there are no other posts tagged “British Bladders” or “Melchett.”

      Don’t be saddened. Hold hope for future visits.

    Of course Mr. Fry is pro-palestinian and believes that Israel’s creation WAS a catastrophe…
