The great thing about jackass is that failure is not only encouraged but also tolerated. And so, even though Lance Bangs' birthday was yesterday, I have since taken a Wikipedia mistake I once made in 2010 and turned it into a tradition here on the site to let Jeff Tremaine reign supreme and lay sole claim to the 4th (hey, it's good to be the King, or, I suppose, Emperor in this case) and belatedly say hey to Lance on the 5th. So here's a day late toast to our occasional PAL but always good pal Lance, who can be pretty damn dapper when the colourful event presents itself. Happy Birthday, Lance! Now go check out his Young Americans series on the Vice.com and see what's really going on.
