This is not an April Fool's joke. This is a laughing matter of joyful celebration!
Chris is indeed one day (and year) older and wiser on this his natural* birthday!
Happy Birthday, Chris!!!
*natural because... I am sure he also has a twitter birthday, a ning birthday, a Facebook birthday, a you-fill-in-the-blank-with-a-social-media-or-social-network-tool birthday and you get the drift!
