Market Leverage Sends Singing Ape To Sing Happy Birthday

Any readers who follow me on Twitter or my Facebook page will know that today is my birthday. I generally don’t make a big deal out of birthdays because I feel that once you’ve passed the age of 21, you should stop celebrating it.

After a certain age, birthdays just reminds you of how old you’re getting. However, I feel that you should resume the birthday celebration once you reach the age of 80. I figure if you can make that far, you should celebrate. If you make it to 100, you should celebrate every month and if you made it to 120, everyday.

It was really nice receiving all the Happy Birthday wishes on Twitter and Facebook. However, Market Leverage decided to go one better. All the way from Orlando, Dina managed to arrange a singing ape to deliver a cake and a custom written birthday song to my house in Vancouver. It may not have been the Macbook Pro I asked for but it’s like the next best thing! Thank Market Leverage and everyone for making this birthday one of the most memorable.

    In case anybody was wondering, here are the song lyrics: Shake your money maker, Shake your money maker!
    Shake your money maker, Shake your money maker!
    Shake your money maker! Let it Roll…….

    I’ve got a girl she lives up on the hill,
    I’ve got a girl she lives up on the hill,
    My girl Sarah lives up on the hill-
    Said she’s going to love me and I know she always will!

    I’ve got a girl she just won’t be true,
    I’ve got a girl she just won’t be true,
    I’ve got a girl and she just won’t be true-
    I have no pictures of her but lots of my favourite food!

    I don’t care about hockey, it doesn’t pass my time!
    I don’t care about hockey, that’s not how I pass my time!
    But I can teach you how to make lots of money online!

    Shake your money maker, shake rattle and roll,
    Shake your money maker, shake rattle and roll,
    Said she’s going to love me when she does, call me Moto!

    Shake your money maker, Shake your money maker!
    Shake your money maker, Shake your money maker-
    Shake your money maker! Let it roll…….

    Happy birthday John!
