It's a longstanding tradition within the Dickhouse family to present individuals celebrating their day of birth with a "Birthday Blue." The "Birthday Blue" is basically a tropical-ish alcohol-based concoction that one would typically find on the grim seafaring menu of a Red Lobster franchise. In fact, that's where this whole dumb tradition began, when a "Birthday Blue" was first purchased and presented to Earl Parker on his 21st birthday*. Since that time many a "Birthday Blue" has been merrily presented and ruefully accepted, mainly because it's a surefire hangover bullet to the head the next morning. I'm not exactly geographically-inclined to buy Andy Bell such a drink at the moment, but I do have this blue-ish memory of him to share from jackass 3D. Andy, too, was a victim of "The Blue Room", but unfortunately most all of the paint exploded up his backside and not up-the-nose-and-into-the-brain as Dave England's awesome experience went. Happy Birthday, Andy!
