Unless you’ve got a fire extinguisher or three, good luck making a wish on this birthday cake.

You probably don’t know the name Ashrita Furman, but Guinness World Records sure does. He’s Guinness’ most prolific record breaker.

Having already climbed Mount Fuji on a friggin’ pogo stick, Furman took it easy on this one, enlisting Sri Chinmoy Centre to light over 70,000 candles on a single cake, smashing the previous record by over 20,000. This was done in honor of Sri Chinmoy’s 85th birthday, who would’ve probably agreed, this record is lit.

The cake was a simple sponge cake with a vanilla mouse. However, it was also shaped like a huge rectangle, measuring 80.5 feet long and 2 feet wide, says Guinness.

Obviously, no one was blowing this thing out, so there was a team of people with fire extinguishers to put make the wish. Don’t worry. They were CO2 extinguishers, so everyone was able to chow down afterwards.

Wow, can you believe it, Mickey Mouse is 88. That hilarious cartoon character that has made us laugh for generations is just 12 years shy of 100.

Premiering in 1928’s cartoon classic "Steamboat Willie," in which Mickey, in the role of Willie, drove a steamboat — stop it, it’s too funny — Mickey was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwreks. Mickey was based on an earlier cartoon called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Because Oswald was owned by Universal, Disney rebranded the character and started making his own cartoons. Oswald, I’m sure, was also very funny.

For years, Mickey was used as an everyman like character, who’s hilarious antics totured the lives of his friend Goofy, Donald, and dog Pluto, who cannot talk, while Goofy, also a dog, can talk. Hilarious.

Now, of course, Mickey is more of a logo than anything else, but his hilarious visage is among one of the most recognizable in the world, providing millions with joy and laughter because, wow, he is just too funny.

To that end, we say “Happy Birthday, Mickey.” You keep being you.

This 'Cool Mom', in Florida of course, arranged for a stripper to be the entertainment for her son's 8th birthday party. That's right, the child was turning 8-years old, and she got him a stripper.



In the long run, it's debatable which would be more damaging later in life, a stripper or a clown at your birthday party. My money would be on the stripper (literally) though.

Dick Van Dyke was surprised by a few hundred people who came to sing and dance for his birthday. Most of them were dressed up as chimney sweeps like Dick Van Dyke's character Bert from Mary Poppins. 

At first he watched from a balcony like the king of exaggerated Cockney accents that he is.

But after a while he came down to join everyone and even sing along.
