I wouldn't be surprised if there's another thread on this topic, but, in celebrating Haskins's birthday, it occurred to me to start a new one anyway.

So, what famous person(s) do you share a birthday with?

Me: Michael Jordan.

You can also find out who died on your birthday.It's possible to be too thorough. That link says I share a birthday with Courtney Love.

It also says I share a birthday with Willy Wonka.

And The Who. How can The Who have a birthday?

They formed on your birth day. Not too hard to figure out, David.

My oldest daughter, IMO, looks very much like Courtney...a scrubbed and polished version...my wife refuses to see it though.


ETA: 2 degrees of separation. Roald was born on my birthday...Willy on yours. Roald wrote Willy. Why do I feel like singing the Free Willy song?

According to one of the local DJs, we share a birthday with

Kim Novak (now 75, but one of the sexiest women ever, imo; but then again I was in my teens when she was in her heyday)

One of my favorite actors/entertainers. He's also the voice of the shipboard computer in the recent movie remake of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," which, according to statistics, you hated but I could watch once every day. :)

I should be all writerly and go with Allen Ginsberg as coolest person to share my b'day...

But instead, I'll be more pop culture and hone in on Suzi Quatro (a.k.a. Leather Tuscadero from Happy Days) because she was possibly my very first celeb crush...
