Alles Gute zum Geburtstag Brassica oleracea var. italica Plenck!
Viel Spaß an diesem (auf jeden Fall hier) schönen 1. Mai.

Since some people might find it rude if I write in German only:
Happy Birthday Brassica oleracea var. italica Plenck! (= Broccoli)
Have fun on this nice (at least here) first of May.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!
