It is often the tradition that at a birthday party, the song “Happy Birthday to You” is sung with the birthday person seated in front of a table where there is a birthday cake with candles that have just been lit, with the other guests gathered around. The number of candles is often the same as the age of the birthday person. After the song is sung (usually just once), sometimes party guests will add phrase like “And many happy returns!” or “And many more!” expressing the hope that the birthday person will enjoy a long life. The birthday person is asked to make a wish (“Make a wish!”) — which is done silently — and then blow out the candles. Traditionally, the blowing out of the candles is felt to signify that the wish will come true. Once the candles have been blown out, people often will applaud, and then the cake is usually served — often by the birthday person — and eaten. Often, after the cake is eaten, each guest gives a gift, usually wrapped in festive paper, to the birthday person. Often the birthday person will then open the gifts, revealing their contents to all. That usually concludes the ritual aspect of a birthday party, which then proceeds much like any other but with the birthday person being treated as the guest of honor.
In addition, Bubba The Cat (the long time brand icon and now celebrity is his own right), is known for being creative, original, ingenious and intelligent.
Shadow Foreign Secretary William Hague is portrayed as an oafish, bitter alcoholic Yorkshireman (referencing his past claims of having drunk “14 pints a day” as a teenager) and the newly elected Mayor of London Boris Johnson portrayed as half man and half dog so when he tries to talk about issues he instead does acts of canine behavior e.g. chasing his tail and licking his genitals.
The sport was especially popular as an activity for mixed couples, with the rivalry between the separate couples adding to the entertainment. At Augustus’s 1648 contest, 34 boars were driven into the enclosure “to the great delectation of the cavaliers, but to the terror of the noble ladies, among whose hoop-skirts the wild boars committed great havoc, to the endless mirth of the assembled illustrious company.” The same contest also saw the introduction of three wolves, but the reaction of the participants to this unusual departure is not recorded.
“Fins”, mostly performed during the first encore in recent years, is always preluded by the Jaws theme as a teaser, which gets the fans pumped. Buffett calls out to the Parrotheads, or “land-sharks”, to get their “fins up”! The fans raise their hands in the air, in the manner of a dorsal fin, and wave it left and right.
In 1725 a church was built.
After killing all of Tucker’s men and all of Shaw’s men, Simon confronts Shaw. Simon and Shaw engage in a brutal one-sided fight which leaves Shaw badly injured. As Simon has Shaw in a choke hold after giving him a vicious beating, Tucker walks in with a gun and stands there watching as Shaw repeatedly orders him to shoot Simon. Tucker ignores his commands. As Shaw moves towards unconsciousness, Simon fatally snaps his neck. As Simon stands before him unarmed, Tucker sarcastically remarks, “So, you’ve brought a fist to a gun fight?” The instant Tucker finishes his words, Simon smoothly disarms Tucker, proclaiming “Yeah, I did.” Simon then turns then gun on Tucker stating that Tucker probably believes that he will kill him. However, he tells Tucker that his “beef” is not with him, hands Tucker the gun and walks away. Tucker is visibly impressed by Simon’s cool display and delivers the final line of the movie saying, “That’s gangster.”
Spanish rain does not actually stay mainly in the plain. It falls mainly in the northern mountains.

Zan can transform into water at any state (solid, liquid, gas). In the case of becoming solid ice, he can also become any form he chooses, from a cage for a criminal to, implausibly, complex machinery (such as a rocket engine).

The Blobbies come from Blobbieworld, where every grain of sand, every gust of wind, and every drop of water can feel, talk and smile. It is ruled by the Elemental Blobbies; Blobbie Fire, Blobbie Earth, Blobbie Water, Blobbie Air, and Blobbie Void. Seven new Blobbies in the colors of the rainbow, called Blobbie Colors, are created by Blobbie Fire and given strict orders not to wake up the eldest, Blobbie Void. They live and play until Blobbie Violet becomes bored with the simple shapes of Blobbieworld. It persuades Blobbie Indigo to help it go back into space and wake up Blobbie Void, whom they believe will teach them new shapes. Unfortunately as soon as they wake it up it turns into a portal that lets in evil creatures called Hexicones who attack with freezing beams of darkness. To save the Blobbie Colors, Blobbie Void transports them to an obscure planet called Earth. While there, the Blobbies learn many new and advanced shapes while reading books in a library. Eventually they decide to return and take on the Hexacones. Blobbie Void brings them back and they discover that the Hexacone King is carrying the evil Hexahedron Crystal, the source of their power. Blobbie Green sacrifices himself by turning into a Venus Flytrap and swallowing the beams of darkness so the others can blobbiemorph into Hexacones and launch a surprise attack. Blobbie Indigo wins by blobbiemorphing into a fire breathing batsnake and crushing the crystal. Without it, the Hexacones are freed from its curse and turn back into ordinary Blobbies.
Depending on the organization responsible, as well as the local laws, a variation of the bikini car wash sometimes occurs, in which the women will wash the car topless, usually for an extra fee. This type of car wash is not found in the US as part of any legitimate charitable or fund raising event.
In the “peak oil” debate, the views of those labeled as cornucopian are very diverse, ranging from the simplistic “we will never run out of oil” to pessimistic views such as “we might transition to alternatives fast enough to barely avoid the collapse of civilization”.
The game has been described by some as “pointless”.
Eye colors can range from the most common color, brown, to the least common.
