Birthday roast: Iowahawk asks for birthday insults; Twitter delivers

Birthday wishes, Twitter-style! The always amazing Iowahawk is celebrating a birthday today.

True to hilarious form, he turned it into a day of giggles by asking for birthday insults. And, boy, did Twitter deliver.

Those are fighting words! The hilarity continues:

Facebook friends get in on the action, too.

And now the heavy hitters!

Zing! We’ll end with a self-insult from the master himself.

Never change, Iowahawk. We at Twitchy are wishing you a very happy birthday: All the best, today and always. May this year be your best yet! You totally deserve a special gift: Perhaps we can entice Amanda Marcotte to  jump out of a cake for you, and then bravely run away after shrieking something about The Patriarchy.

You’re welcome.
