It is! It's Wyland's birthday! Happy birthday to that great, erm, American, I assume. Who is Wyland, you ask?

Why, it's the artist behind the calendar. If you've been living under a rock or, well, anywhere where you've got a life, you probably don't know that Wyland is one of the more popular artists in America now and the official artist of the US Olympic team. To be honest, I had no idea until I googled him and reached his corporation's site.

But the company puts his birthday on its calendars, and I'll be honest, I have to respect that. If my company made calendars, I'd do something similar, except that I'd have them mark my wife and kids' birthdays and my anniversary. Just so I'd be unable to forget to put them on the calendar.

To say Noggle, one first must be able to say the "Nah."
