Hello Everybody! You have both Autumn the Puppy AND Ms. Waxy Dragon here today with a very special surprise!

AUTUMN: Tomorrow, March 5, is the FIFTIETH BIRTHDAY of our illustrious Editor-In-Chief: Lee Houston, Junior.
WAXY: And we'd thought we'd surprise him by taking over The Free Choice E-zine's office computer to post this very special birthday edition of the Sunday Funnies.
AUTUMN: Now, Lee has been through a lot both good and bad within his first five decades of life. He's young enough not to remember the Beatles first run, yet is old enough to know they were more than just Paul McCartney's first back up group.
WAXY: The poor man has survived both congestive heart failure AND an aortic aneurysm! While both have sadly taken their physical toll upon his body and health, we are lucky to still be able to enjoy his friendship and creative spirit week after week through this E-zine.
AUTUMN: But then again, it wouldn't be the Sunday Funnies without some jokes. Ready Waxy?
WAXY: Are they funny?
AUTUMN: We'll see. Besides, that's never stopped us before. ANYWAY...

AUTUMN: Lee, turning 50 only means that you're at the initial stages of life.
WAXY: Yeah. MD., DR., and AARP.

AUTUMN: When you were younger, you were always taught to respect your elders.
WAXY: Yeah, but now that you're 50, who's left?

AUTUMN: Now that you're 50, will you still bother to buy green bananas?
WAXY: Will you now buy alphabet soup with larger letters? And the next time you hear "Snap, crackle, and pop" in the morning, it may not be your breakfast cereal!

AUTUMN: Serious-Lee, you're not old! Your chronologically gifted!
WAXY: Yeah. Jack Benny was 39 for how many years?
AUTUMN: Remember, the secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
WAXY: You're as young as you feel!
AUTUMN: Age is just a number. It's all in your mind.
WAXY: And they say the mind is the second thing to go. Fortunately, you can't remember what the first thing is anymore.

AUTUMN: We joke because we love you! Now then, before we go, we've got one more surprise for you Lee.

WAXY: Our personal chef Edith has made you a birthday cake.
AUTUMN: Don't worry, it's sugar free.
WAXY: But remember, you can't have your cake and Edith too.
AUTUMN: Wait a second. Isn't that an old joke?
WAXY: Aren't they all?
