FanBoyWonder’s *&#$@! Birthday

(Pictured above: Not the "God**mmed FanBoyWonder"….but an incredible simulation!)

Today is FanBoyWonder’s birthday (hold your applause and/or condolences until the end please). We are neither bragging nor complaining...just admitting to facts already in evidence.

However, if you follow the news at all, you may have heard that there’s a little bit of HEAT around the corner from FanBoyWonder’s world headquarters in Frederick, Maryland. So before we are named a “person of interest” in the commission of our own birthday by some Fancy But Incompetent blue suit, we’ve opted to flee the jurisdiction for today.

Thus Grandpa FBW will off the grid today and on the hiking trail where we will be contemplating our mortality and our slippery slide toward middle age, as well as getting a head start on planning a really, really grand mid-life crisis--suggestions welcome!

So we’ll see you on the other side!

PS: A happy happy Birthday to our good friend Dr. Bill, with whom we share the day. Cheers Doctor!

Bush League Justice???

FanBoyWonder spotted this editorial cartoon while reading yesterday—Time in turn picked it up from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and we thought it was just too darned funny not to share.

Now this is about as political as we get on this blog and our fanboy friends on the Right need not get all lathered up—we’re an equal opportunity make-fun-of-er.

In the interest of fairness, we’ll post a comic book cartoon that equally tweaks the Lefty Moonbats the moment we see something that fits the bill—AND that is funny.

Speedy Recovery to Morgan Freeman

FanBoyWonder would like to extend our best wishes and a speedy recovery to Oscar ® winning actor Morgan Freeman—best known to fanboys and girls as Lucius Fox, Batman’s gadget guy in Batman Begins and the now-playing The Dark Knight.

Mr. Freeman was seriously injured and reported hospitalized in serious condition in a Tennessee hospital following an automobile accident yesterday.

Freeman, 71, "has a broken arm, broken elbow and minor shoulder damage, but is in good spirits," according to a statement from Donna Lee, Freeman's publicist as reported by the Associated Press.

Below is Lee’s statement in full regarding Mr. Freeman’s condition:

MEMPHIS, Tenn.-- The following is a statement by Donna Lee - Spokesperson/Publicist for Morgan Freeman:

Regarding Morgan's injuries - "Morgan has a broken arm, elbow and has minor shoulder damage but was in good spirits when I spoke with him a short time ago at the Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center at The MED, a Level 1 Trauma Center at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis.

He is having a little bit of surgery this afternoon or tomorrow to help correct the damage. He says he'll be OK and is looking forward to a full recovery

Folks are welcome to send well wishes - no flowers or gifts - to:
PO Box 16548, Encino, CA 91416 in care of Morgan Freeman
Or they can blog him at:
He and we thank everyone who has sent them for the good wishes and prayers.

Mr. Freeman has a long, distinguished body of work but to FanBoyWonder he’ll always be The Easy Reader from the Electric Company in the ‘70s and of course, Ellis Boyd "Red" Redding, wise prison lifer from The Shawshank Redemption.

Godspeed Red and get well soon!
