    Happy birthday!! LOVES the grumpy kitteh and the bulldog puckering up for a kees! MWAH!

  34. I have to agree with the comments about #2. Kitteh doesn’t seem to be feelin’ the love. Maybe he wanted tuna cake and not chocolate cake.

  63. EZReader says:

    Raise a ruckus on your birthday – I always imagine a ruckus to be prickly but cute, and non-allergenic, so a baby one to raise might be the perfect gift. Yay for Meg and for Cute Overload. Thanks all.

  64. browngrl says:

    Happy Birthday! I am now going to the kitchen to bake a super deluxe chocolate overload cake in your honor ( I will also eat it in your honor).

  82. Meg, I hope all of your Birthday Wishes come true this year. You are a Remarkable and Powerful woman. Seroiusly. With one silly photo of a kitten up against a wall, you managed to gather a huge and devoted international community! You have the power to make grown men say “awwww,” to have perfectly coordinated professionals squirt tea out of their noses, and to have reduced scholars to baby talk. So make some big birthday wishes this year, Meg and let’s see what new fun happens! And have a Very Happy Birthday! Smooch!

  83. Happy B-Day Meg! 😀

  142. charliewabba says:

    And as we did in my neighborhood,
    make a wish,
    blow out the candles,
    save the last one out to put under your pillow tonight
    and don’t show your teeth until you’ve had your first bite of cake
    and your wish will come true,
    and as birthday girl, you may take a fingerful of frosting from any part of the cake before it is cut.
    Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!

    Farm Overload. Somebody is seriously creative, making that cloud thingy. What can they come up with for next year? Maybe it is better to be surprised, no?

    Nice to see you in person, in that last movie clip. Would someone mind putting names to faces for us? Is Theo there, for example?

    Have a hipipity hopopity birthday, Megs.

  180. Squizzer says:

    Happy Birthday! That’s the best office birthday party I’ve ever seen!

  181. apotheosis says:

    LOL @ the office. Awesome.

    What kinda chicken is perched on that guy’s hat? That’s pretty extreme.

  182. Camille says:

    Can the office pranksters drop by my place of employment, please? I’ve just been thinking that what my workspace lacks is a petting zoo.

  183. Too.Friggen.Funny!

    Unless you demand a petting zoo for every birthday from now on, they will only be let downs.

  184. Happy Birthday Meg — and thanks for all the fun!

  185. Katfighter says:

    Holy cow, that is THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRANK EVER! I can’t believe they were able to get all those critters in there, not to mention all the hay and straw!! Unbelievable! Give them all raises!

    Meg, I hope we get more narrative from you about your b-day surprise.


  186. Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you

    Well, it’s time to celebrate your birthday, it happens every year
    We’ll eat a lot of broccoli and drink a lot of beer
    You should be good and happy that there’s something you can eat
    A million people every day are starving in the street

    Your daddy’s in the gutter with the wretched and the poor
    Your mama’s in the kitchen with a can of Cycle Four
    There’s garbage in the water
    There’s poison in the sky
    I guess it won’t be long before we’re all gonna die

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you

    Well, what’s the matter little friend, you think this party is the pits
    Enjoy it while you can, we’ll soon be blown to bits
    The monkeys in the pentagon are gonna cook our goose
    Their finger’s on the button, all they need it an excuse

    It doesn’t take a military genius to see
    We’ll all be crispy critters after World War III
    There’s nowhere you can run to, nowhere you can hide
    When they drop the big one, we all get fried

    (Come on boys and girls, sing along, ok?)

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you
    wow! (background screaming, sound effect)

    Well there’s a punk in the alley and he’s looking for a fight
    There’s an Arab on the corner buying everything in sight
    There’s a mother in the ghetto with another mouth to feed
    Seems that everywhere you look today there’s misery and greed

    I guess you know the Earth is gonna crash into the sun
    But that’s no reason why we shouldn’t have a little fun
    So if you think it’s scary, if it’s more than you can take
    Just blow out the candles and have a piece of cake

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you
    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday to you

    (Happy Birthday!)

    And a pinch to grow an inch!

  187. Best. Birfday. EVAR!!! Can I come work for you? *bunneh eyes*

  192. misscrisp says:

    ZOMG best office b-day evar! Big butterfly kisses to the elves who put that together, and of course an endless thank you to queen Meg for being the sunshine of our lives.

  193. OMG farmoverload.com is hilarious. Someone went to a lot of trouble to make that!

  194. Holy crap, Meg, THEY MADE YOU THE DREAM OFFICE. 😯
    Did they go as far as to get the pneumatic messenger-hamster tubes installed?

  195. happy happy happy birthday!!!! 🙂

  196. I’ve always thought my workplace needs a wrecked pirate ship in the middle with guide wires to travel on, but a petting zoo would work too.

    Happy happy birthday Meg, you awesome lady you!

  197. scoobie says:

    What company allows office pranks like this?
    I take it this isn’t the CO office. I didn’t think CO has an office as such?

    I seriously need to switch company.

  199. Happy birthday Meg! I hope you’re on your way to some nice celebratin’ tonight! Meanwhile, now I know what I can wish for on all future birthdays – a farm birthday!!! That would truly be the best birthday ever!!! (Although I’m not sure my employer would approve…)

    @ Theo – pneumatic messenger-hamster tubes! LOL! And a kitten-claw shredder! And a puppy to lick envelopes! And ferrets to run all the wires behind the desks! And… And… Want… that… office… now!

    [Now you’re getting it! 😀 – Ed.]

  202. You have the best office-mates EVER!!! The petting zoo was genius! Good lord, they thought of everything–a menagerie AND costumes (unless, of course, you keep hats, vests and bandanas in your office just in case…) You look like you are having a ball. Nothing like starting your birthday with some animal hijinks. Happy happy happy birthday.

  203. scoobie says:

    OMG – this is a prank of the century
    Check out http://www.farmoverload.com

    [You know, I submitted a couple of comments over there. And they’re AWAITING MODERATION. Is that not the apex of irony? 😆 – Ed.]

  204. Must say Happy Birthday to Meg even tho I am the two millionth wellwisher! We love you, supergirl!!!

  205. LOL at the merry pranksters–I just realized that not only did they decorate your office, but they also created a website in your honor as well. Love the farmoverload.com logo… So nice to know that you are surrounded by so much amazing creativity!

  206. Have a wonderful birthday. You deserve it for all the joy, laughter, fun, and excessive cuteness you bring to the world. You coworkers have created the best office birthday prank ever. (Having worked where you work I can’t believe they permission from security to bring in all those animals!)

    Happy Birthday Meg! How fun to go to work and find a petting zoo! Just think, when you wake up tomorrow you will be thinking, “Was that all a dream?” but when you walk in to your office you will be reminded instantly that it was real. (It might take a while to get the, uh, hay smells to evaporate, especially if your office like many don’t have windows that actually open!) Ah, the prank that keeps on giving! I love it!!

  226. I’m happy to see that Ken and Romero still bring their ‘A’ game to office pranks. Happy Birthday!

  227. I’m happy to see that Ken, Romero and the rest of the crew still bring their ‘A’ game to office pranks. Happy Birthday!

  228. darkshines says:

    Oh my cogs, if I showed up at work and it had been filled with bunnies, duckies and other cute-sumables, I would DIE. I was just thinking as I woke up this morning how much I need a pet a bunny…. 😦

  229. Happy Birthday, Meg! I’d love to have that kind of surprise at work, too!

  230. I want my office turned into a petting zoo. Cutest prank ever.

  243. I guess an office of ponies, bunnies, and chickenes is WAY better than a box of kittens!!! Looks like you had a great day!

  244. RedKitten says:

    Happy birthday Meg! I also wanted to add, from seeing the office photos, that you really know how to throw an outfit together! (Excellent taste in cute AND excellent taste in clothing? I think I’ve found my new role model!)

  245. Londoner says:

    Slainte, Meg! I can’t thank you enough for brightening up so many dull office days.

  268. Happy Birthday, Leoncita (that means little Leo in Spanish)!!
    All the best to you.
    Thank you for the joy and laughter that you bring me!!
