Happy Birthday, Jim Brennan!

Hooniverse Asks: Would Jim Approve?

Today is our very own Jim Brennan’s birthday! While he’s going through a bit of a rough patch in his non-Hooniverse world right now, and has been forced to take a bit of time away from our hallowed halls, he’s surely missed, and we’re fairly certain he’s still checking in from time to time. So let’s brighten his day a bit! Speaking for those of us behind the scenes, I know our thoughts are with him, and we wish him a very happy birthday!
Join in, and share your wishes below; let’s make this, his 273rd birthday, one to remember. Assuming he can remember anything at his age.

    Happy Birthday Jim! 273rd? You don't look a day over 185!

      So he looks better than Joe Walsh's Maserati?

    If Jim disapproves of that van, the next posting should be an announcement of his parting of ways with the Hooniverse.
    Happy birthday, Jim!

    I'm sure $kaycog will have a much better present than I could give delivered to you.

      Why are you sitting in that Corvair?

      Four hot chicks in a '64, and a Clark's catalog, too. "Hello, this is Cal Clark…"

      Where do you FIND these photos!? Also… I believe #2 and #4 are twins. Or… quadruplets. Whichever. That opens whole new can of awesome.

      1. Charles_Barrett Avatar

        Or maybe they're genetically engineered clones, half cluster lizard and half love slave. They've chosen this Corvair and forsaken Lexx

        1. Deartháir Avatar

          That's just fine by me. They've got boobs. I'm not really thinking too far beyond that part of it.

      2. $kaycog Avatar

        I'm just a lucky searcher, I guess. I thought the girls resembled each other too. The picture I really wanted to post was of a Corvair with a girl's legs sticking out the window, but it's a php. http://corvaircenter.com/phorum/read.php?1,353746

          Let's try this instead:

            That's it! How did you do that? You have magical powers, don't you?

        I've been to the one in Chicago and while the food was decent, the atmosphere was better. And my waitress is now in the running to be on the 2012 calendar.
        I hope to review their location in Louisville in the near future.

          That may be my new favourite restaurant in the world. And I've never been there.

        Thank you for fixing whatever just broke… IN other news… I found a website called "the Girls of Ebay." Topic for Drunkcast?

        1. Syrax Avatar

          Are they for sale?

            Bidding starts at a dollar!

    I've met Jim in real life, and can honestly say that he is one truly nice guy. So, Jim, I wish you the happiest of happy birthdays. And many more!

    Happy Birthday Jim! Here's a picture of my favorite truck (of the 3 I've owned)

    Sorry about the bike in the way.

    1. Alff Avatar

      Excellent choice. Looks a lot like my first "car" – a 1978 Ford Courier. Also, I'm digging your paver driveway. If mine wasn't so big and prone to icing, that's how I'd redo it.

    2. Feds_II Avatar

      A potential &lt;pow!&gt; for Alf. That is an '84 B2000, which is a courier, but with a Mazda motor instead of the Ford 2.3. Great, tough little truck, but not capable of handling the impending (and long since arrived) 2nd child.
      The driveway was there when we bought the place. I love it in the spring before the weeds grow in, and I love it in the fall after they die. In the winter it gets icy, and in the summer it gets weedy. It was also never edged properly, so I have to do some digging and hammering this summer to get the edges back in line (literally).

    I hope the Stinger's not going into LeMons. That would be a crying shame.

    Happiest of birthdays, Jim! Your posts here rock. Here's to many more.

  13. Maxichamp Avatar

    Jim and the other regular posters,
    I don't know what's going on in your real lives but I think I speak for all the readers when I say we hope you get through it quickly and in one piece. We appreciate your labor of love that is the Hooniverse.
    Also, leaving the keys to Hooniverse with longroofian on weekends is madness. MADNESS!

    1. Deartháir Avatar

      It's a good kind of madness.

    Happy birthday, Jim!
    I do know that UD is Nissan Diesel, so I present:
    <img src="http://files.myopera.com/mail-man/albums/3446592/nissan-diesel_bus_trailer_dc.JPG&quot; width=350>
    It symbolizes that seemingly unavoidable problems (jumping, loud elementary schoolchildren) can be overcome. Okay, that's a load of jibberish; I wish you well too!

    Man, and I came here today specifically to track you down and grill you about what you knew about Grumman Stepvans. Oh well, it can wait, and I wish you the Best of Luck and even the Betterest of Birthdays!

    Happy Birthday Mr. Brennan! What would you prefer: A UD-powered Corvair, or a Corvair-engined UD? The Atomic Toasters crew would probably build* your choice, provided they could lay off the scotch long enough.
    *by "build" I of course mean "assemble an arrangement of edited pixels"
