Hippo Birdie Two Ewes, James Joyce!

You may have left us in your wake, but not before you made all of us Finnegans Wake up.

Thanks to you, Finnegans can have fun again, because language is not languid. And when you saw lengwhich, like Molly, you said yes, yes, Yes!

yes I said yes I will Yes

I will have some whiskey.

(Ok, not as creative as your post, but how could I top it?)

Wait. Ulysses was published on his 40th birthday. That's kind of cool.

Hi, Amber. I'm glad you're joining in the celebration!

Joyce had a thing about numbers and dates, so, yes, it's very cool that ULYSSES was published on his birthday.
