Happy Birthday, Nena!

24 March, 1960 | Nena | 80s pop singer

Lieber Nena,

Glücklicher 43rd Geburtstag! Ich liebe Ihren Song, “99 Luftbaloons.” Meine Schildkröte kriecht immer in sein Shell, wenn sie angeht. Manchmal, wenn ich Abendessen esse, esse ich tacos. Wenn ich mein Fernsehen einschalte, tanze ich blankes auf meinem Bett. Der Wind kräuselt meine Testikel. Wenn ich ein Tier war, möchte ich ein Elefant sein. Sie haben enorme Penises. Wenn ich die Wand betrachte, verbringe ich eine enorme Zeitmenge die Bohrungen überprüfend.

Hoboken über Alles!
