Following in the spirit of truly naff birthday card verse I make the following offering:

There was an illusionist named Derren
Who no longer was thirty-seven
Happy Birthday today
Sending best wishes your way
Love Katherine who lives down in Devon.

Now you have reached thirty-eight
Don’t worry, you’re still looking great
I wanted to say
Enjoy your big day
So go out and just celebrate.

Next year you will turn thirty-nine
And I think that this is the time
Researchers do say
Memory does decay
But somehow, I think you’ll be fine.

To the year you will turn big four O
I don’t think I’ll bother to go
Hoping this year
Will be full of good cheer
Can’t wait for the stunning new show.

In French it’s ‘Bon Anniversaire’
Don’t worry you’re losing your hair
Stand up with pride
It’s nothing to hide
I’m sure your fans really don’t care.

And so for one last time I will say
To Derren, happy returns of the day
As our marvellous host
Please keep writing new post
And I’ll see you in Plymouth in May.



February 27, 2009 at 3:39 pm
Katherine says:

Phillis, It appears I missed you recent birthday so here’s a belated verse for you too:

There was a young blogger named Phillis
Whose job at Brown Towers was just total bliss
Mustn’t forget to say
Happy Birthday today
I’ll stand facing London and blow a kiss!

If you’re not in London, either someone will have to pass it on or let me know where on Earth you are and I’ll face that way instead!

ScreamingGreenConure says:

Flapjack, people have written amusing poems and made amusing comments about age AND hairline. However, I just did a ctrl+f on this page and both “beard” and “goatee” came up blank, giving you a clear run at anything well-natured yet humorous regarding styles of facial hair.
Have at it, buddy.

Flapjack says:

Thanks for the inspiration SGC! – Goatee Birthday Derren and Many happy returns of the cake… [as anyone bearded knows, you can usually find remnants of cake that never quite made it to the mouth stored there- at least until it’s washed. Don’t know if this theory still works with a well manicured goatee, but perhaps you can experiment today and tell us if you’re still finding chocolate icing in it next week. You need never go hungry again!]

ScreamingGreenConure says:

No, it’s not a British expression and doesn’t relate to any orientation in particular. I was listening to a rap song is all. It means I have him covered, as in I am looking out for him. Usually that means his well-being or safety, but in this case I’m looking out for pun opportunities.

You brits know how to party then .. I can see it vividly .. hehehe … but how do you speak with a, erm … foot, yeah, it says foot, in your mouth .. let alone dance ..? Must be brittish secret skills ..

I dont think I get it in my mouth though … no, no ..sos sos …

And so the party is becoming quite jolly with all this people hopping around on one leg with a “foot” in their mouth saying (well, muffled) stupid things .. Look, there goes the birthday boy .. oh, no, it’s coops, he tries to do it with both feet … phillis loans her feet to those with no feet or sweaty feet .. and LOOK, aint that our birthdayboy … who didn’t get it right .. put his hand in his mouth … MAGIC ….

Maura says:

I was thinking that this should be an official holiday, recognized the world over. But the potential celebrations (Russian roulette, skewering the arms of pop stars, armed robbery, etc.) would be too dangerous.

I plan to celebrate Derren Day with plenty of downloaded video and wishes for many happy returns.

@sue – As an American I was not familiar with Darren Day before I read your comment. So I celebrated him just now by finding out who the hell he is. Most potential Darren Day traditions would also, clearly, be quite disastrous.

Devolved says:

I suspect the day’s almost over there in England, and it’s halfway through the next day here in NZ.. so that would make it a belated birthday wish here, but not there? But then you’re not here anyway so technically it’s not belated at all.

Aah, stuff it. Happy, happy, happy birthday Derren!

On this day in ’71,
There was born a special one,
Tricks, illusions and magic did he
start performing for all the world to see.
And soon he was the absolute best
of magicians, he just whips the rest!

Happy, Happy Birthday to you, Derren!! Have a wonderful day today….. 😀

Take care

Aw, what happened to that cute one up there … my …. I want that one! Give me!

I’m sure he had a wonderfull birtday, racing up and down and having to work and such. Isn’t that how we all preferred to celebrate our birthday. Oh well .. he”ll be surrounded by people that do like whatever he does. And that normally will only happen to other people on their birthday ..

You’re not reading this, are you Brown? If so, here’s my hand .. let’s do the b-day shake. No? Not into that either. Hm … Oh well, have a drink from me then.

On this day 40 years ago,
A magical baby said hello.
He didn’t seem special or of any renown,
But this little one was THE Derren Brown.

From card tricks at restaurants, hypnosis and more,
This wizard of wonder was found by Four.
And over the years from TV to stage,
This talented performer came of age.
From Mind Control to Tricks of the Mind,
This conjuror from Croydon became one of a kind.

So Happy Birthday, Derren!
40 years on this earth.
The magic world was blessed the day
that you were given birth.


Have a fabulous birthday today Derren, I hope it’s as special as you are.

Lots of love & hugs xx

Lil’ bird are tweeting and chirping away,
today will be a wonderful day
A baby was born
on this very morn
to venture to strange seas
that know no peace
but he mastered them all
creatures big and small
and they followed his lead
after him they would tread
enchanted by magical cues
hooked by his lures
then he smiled at them
his face shining like a gem
spreading happiness
kind gentleness
that completely mesmerized them all.

Happy Birthday, Derren !!! 🙂
