Gefeliciteerd!
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!

Happy Birthday, honey.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
