Yes, time to wish Happy Birthdays and Anniversaries again.
First a happy 195th (if he was around still) Birthday to the greatest beard in all history, Karl Marx. He’s inspired many a tactically and strategically inept student to take up the ‘honourable’ cause of occupations.
We’d also like to wish a Happy 70th Birthday to everyone’s favourite Python, Michael Palin. Part-time lumberjack, occasional Knight of Camelot and soon to be Governor of Roman Jerusalem with his friend Biggus Dickus.
Finally, we’d like to take note of the anniversary of the death of Napoleon Bonaparte in the year 1821 in exile on the island of Saint Helena aged 51. One of the most gifted generals of all history and all round short pint.
