Happy Birthday, Rick Scott!

Gov. Richard Lynn "Rick" Scott is 59 years old today, and to his credit, it's been a successful run for him.

He's a Navy veteran, earned a bachelor's degree and a law degree, bought some doughnut shops, eventually oversaw a health-care corporation that pleaded guilty to 14 felonies, bought some more things, cofounded the health-care chain Solantic, and eventually became the governor of Florida.

Anyway, enough of that. Let's take this time to give the governor some birthday wishes.

Our present to the governor: Using that Rick Scott-approved photo we swore we'd never, ever use. (We don't usually get this nice.)

So, readers, it's now time to leave your wonderful -- or profane and despicably sarcastic -- birthday message for the governor in the comments below.

We'll make you Pulp-famous if you leave a good one.
