And, of course, none of them were born in your kitchen.

Also, they share a birthday with Sasha Volokh.

Others include Joan Rivers, and Harvard law prof David Shapiro. Happy birthday Kevan!

Happy birthday, Kevan and Sasha! Something about being born on October 12 apparently makes one good-natured and exceptionally adept at word games, as both of you are.

They are people who have never been in my kitchen.

just me:
I suggest that the appropriate "kitchen" response is that they are all invited to have a slice of birthday cake in my kitchen. :-)

Happy day.

Ok, seriously folks, please no more attempts at the kitchen "joke."

At least not two in the same comments section.

I think the one by RJL is somewhat funny, given that it's a twist on the normal joke that actually relates to the original post.

But VC Regular, come on man. How is it funny to repeat the same joke (already made, and made better)?

Can we stop the insanity?

Clearly, Amanda, your not being born on October 12 has proven to be no bar to being good-natured and adept at word games.

wt - you have a point, but these people haven't been in my kitchen either.

Thanks WT.

I actually think there are some opportunities to turn the lame old "in my kitchen" joke into decent humor, but it will take some creativity.

They were all born on the same date as my oldest daughter. A great day for me and Columbus whose day it used to be until 1968.

In addition, they share a birthday with me.

October 12 is an awesome day to be born.

And the 12th of October is my birthday also!
Go Libras!
