Ouch. The “second favorite” deal is a bit harsh on his birthday! Today is his birthday. It’s not our birthday too, though.
Sir Paul McCartney turned 70 years old today. Naturally, there were many tweets offering birthday wishes to the rock and roll legend, who still seems to be a hit with the ladies.
Happy Birthday Paul McCartney ! You may be 70 but we still fancy you ! X

A few, however, stood out. Like PETA’s.

Others chose to celebrate his birthday with some good-natured ribbing.
Paul McCartney is 70. So he can stop using shoe polish on his hair now.

RT @donlinn: Just read a tweet including the words "Paul McCartney of Wings fame". What was that other band called?

It's Paul McCartney birthday. Somewhere Ringo sits by an empty mailbox waiting for an invite, muttering, "This year he'll remember."

And a nice, cuckoo pants conspiracy theory to round-out the day.
A conspiracy theory claims Paul McCartney died and was replaced by a lookalike in 1966! Crazy details –> http://t.co/PaQO8QJt
